Weighing in on the progress of innovative technologies, the adoption of new standards, and the absence of educational development as it connects to current and developing applications, Introduction to Instrumentation and Measurements, 3rd Edition, (PDF) uses the authors’ 40 years of teaching experience to explain the theory, science, and art of modern instrumentation and measurements (I&M).

This edition contains material on modern integrated circuit (IC) and photonic sensors, micro-electro-mechanical (MEM) and nano-electro-mechanical (NEM) sensors, signal conditioning, noise, chemical and radiation sensors, data interfaces, and basic digital signal processing (DSP), and upgrades each chapter with the latest advancements. It includes new material on the designs of micro-electro-mechanical (MEMS) sensors, includes two new chapters on wireless instrumentation and microsensors, and integrates extensive biomedical examples and problems.

Containing 13 chapters, this third edition:

  • Presents a survey of sensor mechanisms
  • Defines digital signal conditioning in instrumentation
  • Examines digital interfaces in measurement systems
  • Introduces mechanical microsensors (MEMS and NEMS)
  • Includes the classic means of measuring electrical quantities
  • Examines Wheatstone and Kelvin bridges and potentiometers
  • Considers noise and coherent interference in measurements in depth
  • Addresses solid-state chemical microsensors and wireless instrumentation
  • Emphasizes on means of conditioning the analog outputs of various sensors
  • Describes signal conditioning, sensor dynamics, and data display and storage
  • Searches the major AC bridges used to measure inductance, Q, capacitance, and D
  • Offers a detailed analysis of mechanical gyroscopes, clinometers, and accelerometers
  • Features the traditional topics of DC null methods of measurement and AC null measurements
  • Contains a description and analysis of sensors based on the giant magnetoresistive effect (GMR) and the anisotropic magnetoresistive (AMR) effect

Describes examples of the design of measurement systems

Introduction to Instrumentation and Measurements
 is written with practicing scientists and engineers in mind, and is intended to be used in a classroom course or as a reference. It is expected that the reader has taken core EE curriculum courses or their equivalents.
