Pressure, Force, Motion, and Humidity Sensors
Design modern switched-mode power converters; create high-performance control loops around power converters; understand efficiency, power density and cost trade-offsBy 2030, 80% of all electrical energy will be processed by power electronics. Professional advantages continue to grow for technical engineers who understand the fundamental principles and technical requirements of modern power conversion systems. This specialization covers design-oriented analysis, modeling and simulation techniques leading to practical engineering of high-performance power electronics systems.

After taking this course, you will be able to:-Understand how to specify the proper pressure, force, strain, position, motion, acceleration, occupancy, and humidity sensors for taking real-time process data. -Implement these sensors into an embedded system in both hardware and software.-Add the sensor and sensor interface into a microprocessor based development kit.-Create hardware and firmware to process sensor signals and feed data to a microprocessor for further evaluation.In this course you will build the circuit from Video 7 (Lab Exercise on strain gauges), Module 2 (Force and Strain Sensors and Touch Screens), and use it to make screen shots of the timing of the switch. If you haven't already wired up the system and written all the software per the instructions of Video 7, please do so now. You will need to buy the following components to complete this assignment. Note that if you have already purchased the PSOC 5LP PROTOTYPING KIT, you do not need to buy it again. These parts may be purchased off the Digikey web site, www. Digikey.com. One part needs to be purchased off the Sparkfun website www.sparkfun.com. Or, you may obtain the specs from the site, and purchase them elsewhere.Digikey Part numbers are typed out here: 428-3390-ND CF14JT22K0CT-ND CF14JT100KCT-ND Table shown here:IndexQuantityPart NumberDescription11428-3390-NDPSOC 5LP PROTOTYPING KIT22CF14JT22K0CT-ND RES 22K OHM 1/4W 5% AXIAL 31CF14JT100KCT-NDRES 100K OHM 1/4W 5% AXIAL Sparkfun part numbers are typed out here: TAL221Table shown here:IndexQuantityPart NumberDescription11TAL221Mini-load cell - 100g, straight bar
