Focusing on advanced instrumentation design, this unique work builds on real-world case studies to guide readers on the use of electronic device and circuit specifications to design custom defined-accuracy sensor instrumentation and computer interfacing systems. The Second Edition is completely rewritten to incorporate the latest electronic devices and system applications, offering improved accuracy of design models and incorporating real-world measured results throughout. A complete automated system design analyses employing the Analysis Suite computer-assisted engineering spreadsheet is also featured.
