Sensors and Sensor Circuit Design
Embedding Sensors and Motors will introduce you to the design of sensors and motors, and to methods that integrate them into embedded systems used in consumer and industrial products. You will gain hands-on experience with the technologies by building systems that take sensor or motor inputs, and then filter and evaluate the resulting data. You will learn about hardware components and firmware algorithms needed to configure and run sensors and motors in embedded solutions.

After taking this course, you will be able to:-Understand how to specify the proper thermal, flow, or rotary sensor for taking real-time process data. -Implement thermal 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.-Study sensor signal noise and apply proper hardware techniques to reduce it to acceptable levels.You will need to buy the following components to do the two course projects based on the videos in this module. 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. Or, you may obtain the specs from the site, and purchase them elsewhere. These are the part numbers typed out, so you can copy and paste them into the Digikey web site. You will need one of each part.428-3390-NDNHD-0216BZ-RN-YBW-ND570-1229-NDA105970CT-ND
