Sensors are a fundamental component of many electronic systems. This subject teaches students how to design sensor systems, starting from the circuits needed to interface with common sensors. Circuit design considerations include noise, grounding, amplification, and filtering to ensure proper signal conditioning. Next, the subject covers the operational principles of resistive, thermoelectric, capacitive, piezoelectric, inductive, and magnetic sensors. Common applications of each sensor type are studied. Finally, the course introduces wireless sensor networks.
