Without sensors many electronic applications would not exist. The importance of sensors contrasts with the limited information available. Besides describing the principle of operation of most common sensors and covering their advantages and disadvantages, it also analyzes their electronic signal conditioning circuits. Every area from the physical quantity to the analog-to-digital converter is thoroughly discussed. Also covers a broad range of sensors and gives actual specifications for several commercial sensors. Includes several worked-out circuit design examples and discusses problems and annotated solutions that will stimulate the search for and development of new solutions, thus overcoming the need to buy expensive subsystems even for the most basic measurement problems.
