Discovery, analysis and characterization of elements in a measuring system. This course is dedicated to the description and the analysis of all the typical building blocks of a low-frequency analog electronic measurement system. The organization of the course follows the typical sequence of analog electronic elements present in a measurement system: sensor, conditioner, amplifier, filter, analog-to-digital converter.
