An automation of production, quality control or research and development are based on the use of data acquisition systems. Different types of standardized systems, their parameters, programming, and applications are described here. Laboratories are pointing to the programming of frequently used systems using different developing tools. Survey of the evaluation of teaching at FEE: AE3B38PRT

Course outlines:

1. Instrumentation for data acquisition (DAQ) systems - overview
2. Sensors for non electrical quantities measurement and circuits for the connection.
3. Circuits for analog signal processing. Linearization, autocalibration.
4. Digitization of analog signals, methods for digital signal processing. Data interpretation and methods for improvement of measurement accuracy.
5. Hardware for data acquisition and control, industrial controllers.
6. Noise and noise reduction methods.
7. Operating systems for DAQ systems. Development of software applications.
8. Integrated development systems. The use of C/C++ language and graphical programming (LabVIEW, VEE).
9. Standards for DAQ systems programming (SCPI, VISA, IVI).
10. Automation of laboratory experiments.
11. Modular DAQ systems, serial interfaces, wireless measurement systems.
