This digital electronics text focuses on "how to" design, build, operate and adapt data acquisition systems. The material begins with basic logic gates and ends with a 40 KHz voltage measurer. The approach aims to cover a minimal number of topics in detail. The data acquisition circuits described communicate with a host computer through parallel I/O ports. The fundamental idea of the book is that parallel I/O ports (available for all popular computers) offer a superior balance of simplicity, low cost, speed, flexibility and adaptability. All circuits and software are thoroughly tested. Construction details and troubleshooting guidelines are included. This book is intended to serve people who teach or study one of the following: digital electronics, circuit design, software that interacts outside hardware, the process of computer based acquisition, and the design, adaptation, construction and testing of measurement systems.

This book describes the fundamentals of data acquisition systems, how they enable users to sample signals that measure real physical conditions and convert the resulting samples into digital, numeric values that can be analyzed by a computer. The author takes a problem-solving approach to data acquisition, providing the tools engineers need to use the concepts introduced. Coverage includes sensors that convert physical parameters to electrical signals, signal conditioning circuitry to convert sensor signals into a form that can be converted to digital values and analog-to-digital converters, which convert conditioned sensor signals to digital values. Readers will benefit from the hands-on approach, culminating with data acquisition projects, including hardware and software needed to build data acquisition systems.

This book serves as a practical guide for practicing engineers who need to design embedded systems for high-speed data acquisition and control systems. A minimum amount of theory is presented, along with a review of analog and digital electronics, followed by detailed explanations of essential topics in hardware design and software development. The discussion of hardware focuses on microcontroller design (ARM microcontrollers and FPGAs), techniques of embedded design, high speed data acquisition (DAQ) and control systems. Coverage of software development includes main programming techniques, culminating in the study of real-time operating systems. All concepts are introduced in a manner to be highly-accessible to practicing engineers and lead to the practical implementation of an embedded board that can be used in various industrial fields as a control system and high speed data acquisition system.

Data Acquisition and Processing in Biology and Medicine, Volume 4 deals with theories in data acquisition and processing as well as their implementation in biology and medicine. Topics covered range from computer-oriented study of human metabolism to automatic classification of chromosomes; retrieval and processing medical measurement data; data manipulation in investigational new drug applications; and methods of microglossary analysis. Comprised of 20 chapters, this volume begins with a description of the techniques, instrumentation, and analytical procedures for acquiring, storing, and retrieving psychophysiological data on more than 200 subjects. The discussion then turns to the use of computers to study human metabolism, for the reduction of ultracentrifuge data, and in objective content analysis of psychotherapy. Subsequent chapters explore mechanized image systems; cortical auditory response in humans; information processing by electric fishes; and fetal heart rate during cesarean section. This book will be useful for undergraduate students, educators, practitioners, and researchers in computing, biology, and medicine.
