Written by an expert in the field of instrumentation and measurement device design, this book employs comprehensive electronic device and circuit specifications to design custom definedaccuracy instrumentation and computer interfacing systems with definitive accountability to assist critical applications.Advanced Instrumentation and Computer I/O Design, Second Edition begins by developing an understanding of sensoramplifierfilter signal conditioning design methods, enabled by device and system mathematical models, to achieve conditioned signal accuracies of interest and followon computer data conversion and reconstruction functions. Providing complete automated system design analyses that employ the Analysis Suite computerassisted engineering spreadsheet, the book then expands these performance accountability methodscoordinated with versatile and evolving hierarchical subprocesses and control architecturesto overcome difficult contemporary process automation challenges combining both quantitative and qualitative methods. It then concludes with a taxonomy of computer interfaces and standards including telemetry, virtual, and analytical instrumentation.Advanced Instrumentation and Computer I/O Design, Second Edition offers:Updated chapters incorporating the latest electronic devices and system applicationsImproved accuracy of the design models between their theoretical derivations and actual measured resultsEndofchapter problems based on actual industry, laboratory, and aerospace system designsMultiple realworld case studies performed for technology enterprisesInstrumentation Analysis Suite for computer I/O system designA separate solutions manualWritten for international engineering practitioners who design and implement industrial process control systems, laboratory instrumentation, medical electronics, telecommunications, and embedded computer systems, this book will also prove useful for upperundergraduate and graduatelevel electrical engineering students.
This is the first comprehensive treatment of conformal antenna arrays from an engineering perspective. While providing a thorough foundation in theory, the authors of this publication provide a wealth of hands-on instruction for practical analysis and design of conformal antenna arrays. Thus, you get the knowledge you need, alongside the practical know-how to design antennas that are integrated into such structures aircrafts or skyscrapers.
