Objectives
Provide skills to choose and implement circuits with sensors. Gain knowledge about the electronic components and circuits.

Program
Methods, errors and uncertainties in measurements. Electronic instrumentation: resistors, capacitors, inductors, operational amplifiers; transistors and diodes: operating principle, features and application circuits.
Signal conditioning and interface: circuits with operational amplifiers, current loops, differential signals, filters, conversion and power supply.
Sensors: physical functioning. Basic materials used in sensors. Response time characteristics, measuring range, sensitivity, repeatability, etc. Technology and characteristics of the various types of sensors: temperature measurement, presence, force, torque, position, velocity, acceleration, pressure, flow rate, light, magnetic field, etc.
Use of equipment: analog and digital multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators, electric power meters and electricity meters.
