With contributions from an internationally-renowned group of experts, this book uses a multidisciplinary approach to review recent developments in the field of smart sensor systems, providing complete coverage of all important system and design aspects, their building blocks and methods of signal processing. It examines topics over the whole range of sensor technology from the theory and constraints of basic elements, the applied techniques and electronic, up to the level of application-orientated issues.
Developed as a complementary volume to 'Smart Sensor Systems' (Wiley 2008), which introduces the theoretical foundations, this volume focuses on practical applications, including:
- State-of-the-art techniques for designing smart sensors and smart sensor systems, with measurement techniques at system level, such as collaboration and trimming, and impedance-measurement techniques.
- Sensing elements and sensor systems for the measurement of mechanical quantities, and microarrays for DNA detection.
- Circuitdesign for sensor systems, such as the design of low-noise amplifiers, and measurement techniques at device level, such as dynamic offset cancellation and optical imagers.
- Implantable smart sensors for bio-medical applications and automotive sensors.
- A supplementary website hosts case studies and a solutions manual to the problems
Smart Sensor Systems: Emerging Technologies and Applications will greatly benefit final year undergraduate and postgraduate students in the areas of electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering, and physics. Professional engineers and researchers in the microelectronics industry, including microsystem developers, will also find this a thorough and useful volume.
