EE - 128: Data Acquisition, Instrumentation, and Process Control





CREDIT:        4;  3 hours lecture, 3 hours laboratory




Analog  signal transducers, conditioning and processing; step motors, DC servo motors, and other actuation devices; analog to digital and digital to analog converters; data acquisition systems; microcomputer interfaces to commonly used sensors and actuators; design principles for electronic instruments, real time process control and instrumentation. 




CS 120A/EE 120A, EE 100B; or consent of instructor.  Must have ability to program in C language.




The overall goal of this course is to have the students become familiar with data acquisition techniques from a variety of sensors and to build microcomputer interfaces to different kinds of actuators. At the end of the course, students should have a good understanding of process control and how it is implemented in the real-world.
