This book describes the design and characterisation of interface circuits for the dirct connection of sensors with a time-based output signal to a microcontroller. The topics analysed are (a) the performance of microcontrollers in timing signals, (b) the susceptibility of IC quasi-digital sensors to supply voltage changes and (c) the performanceof direct modulating sensor-to-microcontroller interfaces based on measuring the charging/discharging time of na RC circuit. The authors analyse the features and limitations of these interface circuits, and offer design rules and guidelines for improving their performance. This book interestes designers of microcontrollers and IC sensors, which can apply the theoretical models developed herein to predict and reduce the effects of power supply interference. It also interests electronic circuit designers, which can apply the test circuits, measurement methods and design rules to their own designs. Finally, the book being the result of doctoral thesis, it may inspire other researchers to engage in gaining further insight in some of the topics considered, and help them in learning a systematic approach to hypothesis formulation and testing

LabVIEW(R), a product of National Instruments Corporation, is an interactive, hands-on, object-oriented software environment used in instrument control, communications, and a wide range of other applications. It uses graphical language in creating a virtual instrument (VI), which can acquire and process data, display results on a graph, control another instrument and/or an external system, and perform simulation and many other tasks. Because a VI is a software file, it can be easily reconfigured to meet the requirements of a new specification; this ability to alter the functionality of an instrument is an advantage that was never before available to the user. "Applications in LabVIEW" is a comprehensive text that includes -a wide range of data acquisition, analysis, and simulation experiments using LabVIEW software. Topics are presented ranging from an introduction to the basic tools and features of LabVIEW to in-depth, practical experiments with the software. Users are required in many of the experiments to modify existing software in order to achieve a specific measurement, a procedure that will help them better understand the use of LabVIEW.

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. The goal of this book is to help students learn to use LabVIEW™ on their own. Learning with LabVIEW is the textbook that accompanies the LabVIEW Student Edition from National Instruments, Inc. This textbook, as well as the LabVIEW software (LabVIEW software is not included with this book), has undergone a significant revision from the previous edition. Learning with LabVIEW teaches basic programming concepts in a graphical environment and relates them to real-world applications in academia and industry. Understanding and using the intuitive and powerful LabVIEW software is easier than ever before. As you read through the book and work through the examples, we hope you will agree that this book is more of a personal tour guide than a software manual.

Analog CMOS Microelectronic Circuits describes novel approaches for analog electronic interfaces design, especially for resistive and capacitive sensors showing a wide variation range, with the intent to cover a lack of solutions in the literature. After an initial description of sensors and main definitions, novel electronic circuits, which do not require any initial calibrations, are described; they show both AC and DC excitation voltage for the employed sensor, and use both voltage-mode and current-mode approaches. The proposed interfaces can be realized both as prototype boards, for fast characterization (in this sense, they can be easily implemented by students and researchers), and as integrated circuits, using modern low-voltage low-power design techniques (in this case, specialist analog microelectronic researchers will find them useful). The primary audience of Analog CMOS Microelectronic Circuits are: analog circuit designers, sensor companies, Ph.D. students on analog microelectronics, undergraduate and postgraduate students in electronic engineering.
