PHYS-517 Sensors & Digital Electronics
Fall for 2016-2017
During the sensors half of this course, the basics of sensors and instrumentation will be covered, including sensor properties, precision and accuracy, and control and interfacing . The physical principles of electrical, mechanical, optical, magnetic, and chemical sensing will be reviewed. Applications to the measurement of position, velocity, acceleration, force, strain, pressure, flow, electrical and thermal transport, electromagnetic radiation, and temperature will be discussed. The digital electronics half will be a combination of lecture and laboratory work which will focus on combinational and sequential logic networks, counters and shift registers, and interfacing to computer hardware.
