    Diagnosing noise problems in data acquisition (DAQ) circuitry can be difficult and frustrating, especially the first time you encounter a problem. Fortunately, when dealing with data acquisition, we tend to see a lot of the same recurring problems, so solutions come relatively easily. A simple but frustrating problem that sometimes crops up is crosstalk between channels. This article presents seve... View full abstract»

    Dependability can be defined by maintenance costs and how long the maintenance takes. It also can be defined in terms of continuous operation. Finally, it can be defined by how well it endures abuse or failure. The following terms help define and quantify dependability: reliability, fault tolerance or performability, maintainability, testability, availability and safety. View full abstract»

    We are creating a wetland database based on a geographic information system (GIS) and using a Global Position System (GPS) for orientation information to monitor the dynamic changes in wetlands. We can monitor the current conditions, compare them to the historical background of the wetland, and then control the dynamic change where possible. Using this technology, we have a management tool that ca... View full abstract»

    Environmental quality monitoring must have large data acquisition and distribution systems for industrial plants. In particular, refineries must comply with government laws that enforce strict limits on product specifications and pollutant emissions, thus pushing them towards adopting increasingly efficient measurement and control policies to monitor these process variables. The article presents r... View full abstract»

    In part 4 of the series (Schmalzel and Rauth, 2005), the signal conditioning stage for a variety of transducer types and sensors was discussed. The output of this stage in the measurement chain is typically an analog signal that can drive an actuator or display or be converted into digital form. Since the advent of monolithic analog/digital converters (ADCs) in the 1970s, digital measurement syste... View full abstract»

    Electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection circuits are built into every pin of an integrated circuit (IC) to protect the core operating circuits. Many different standards groups have assumed the responsibility of producing ESD testing standards for the IC industry. The quality of ESD testing and their standards have suffered from a lack of measurement updates without an effort for periodic investig... View full abstract»

    Online continuous monitoring and measurement of mass concentration and emissions of particles from industrial chimneys and flues play an increasingly important role in the monitoring and control of particulate emissions. Despite the intrinsic limitations of the electrostatic sensing technology, its combination with digital signal processing algorithms offers a simple and cost-effective means of me...

    Fluxgate magnetometers have always been of interest to technical and scientific communities to sense weak magnetic fields (in the range of 10-6) with a resolution of 100 pT at room temperature. These devices find applicability in fields such as space, geophysical exploration and mapping, nondestructive testing, and assorted military applications. This article discusses the quantities af...
