|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR
This is a practical course where students will approach different aspects of the design and characterization of simple circuits and devices for the acquisition and elaboration of signals from different types of sensors, with a focus on bomedical instrumentation
AIMS AND CONTENT
The main goal of the course is to provide students practical fundamental knowledge regarding the use of measurement instrumentation and the characterization of simple circuits and devices.
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
At the end of the course students will know how:
- to use basic bench instruemntation for test and measuremt
- to know different modalities for interfacing with sensors
- to write simple microcontroller code to record and process signals coming from different tyoes of sensors
- to report an experimental measuremtn session and its results
Basic knowledge of electronics and circuit theory, informatics and C language
Practical experiemntal work in the lab divided into five "lab projects". Few lectures in the classroom to introduce the topic of each lab project.
Five "lab projects" regarding the following topics:
- use of basic electronic measurement instruemntation
- the use of microcontrolers in intrumentation
- how to interface analog and digital sensors with linear and non linear response
- sensor characterization
- measurement uncertainity evaluation
- characterization of noise in the measurement chain and its reduction using analog or digital filters
- "real time" processing of biomedical signals (e.g. photopletismograhpy sifgnal)
Lecture notes will be made avaiable

L'orario di tutti gli insegnamenti è consultabile all'indirizzo EasyAcademy.
The exam will consist in the evalaution of submitted reports for each "lab project" and a final oral discussion.
The aim of the exam will be to assess if the learning objectives have been reached.
It will also be evaluated the clarity of the reports and the capacity to critically discuss the work done and to propose orginal solutions to the problems encountered
