Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
ELE 744 Electronics and Instrumentation
This course focuses on the design and analysis of isolation techniques, signal conditioning and processing units, linear/non-linear signal conversion circuits, and special purpose Integrated Circuits (IC) for effective electronic instrumentation designs. Key topics include: Analog/digital isolation techniques; intrinsic IC noise modeling and low noise OP-AMP amplifiers; instrumentation amplifiers and Single Supply circuits; grounding and noise-reduction techniques; linear Power Supply design, linear and switching voltage regulators, and voltage references; IC voltage-to-frequency (V/F), frequency-to-voltage (F/V) techniques and timer circuits; multipliers; log/anti-log amplifiers; and various other non-linear circuits. Important design concepts and issues are experienced through major embedded-microcontroller based Instrumentation design project, use of electronic circuit simulation tools, and solving design problems.
