Analog signal chain design considerations

Last Updated:

Signal chains for measurement of analog quantities typically pose the toughest design challenges for engineers. Even a simple signal chain with a resistive sensor and an analog-to-digital data acquisition system involves multiple complex factors that have to be dealt with before a valid measurement can be made. These factors are even more complex to manage when a system is working with different sensors. This article discusses different issues developers need to tackle for accurate measurement with illustrations of different type of resistive sensors.
