Description

This volume thoroughly explores all the principles and techniques necessary for connecting any type of sensor to the IBM PC or equivalent computers -- e.g., sensors, transducers, data conversion, and interface techniques.

Features

  • presents hardware and software designs for interfacing a diversity of sensors to the IBM PC.
  • discusses each sensor and the associated electronic circuitry necessary to condition its output for interface to the PC.
  • considers sensors such as temperature sensors, photon sensors, flow sensors, and displacement sensors.
  • explains the theory and practice of signal conversion.
