Intelligent sensors are revolutionizing the world of system design in everything from sports cars to assembly lines. These new sensors have abilities that leave their predecessors in the dust! They not only measure parameters efficiently and precisely, but they also have the ability to enhance and interpret those measurements, thereby transforming raw data into truly useful information.
Within the pages of this book, expert designer Creed Huddleston teaches readers to become quickly proficient in the application of the most popular digital signal controller on the market, the Microchip dsPIC, which handily marries beefy DSP processing power to the ubiquitous PIC. Digital signal controllers have proven to be an optimal way of adding intelligence to sensors because they combine the control advantages of a microcontroller with the speed of a digital signal processor. Through concrete examples and in-depth information on real-world sensor systems, Intelligent Sensor Design Using the Mircrochip dsPIC enables designers to easily produce more accurate code, even while slicing time off product design cycles!
Unlike many embedded systems books that confine themselves strictly to discussing software, this book also delves into the supporting electronic hardware, thereby providing a complete understanding of interfacing to three specific types of sensors (temperature,pressure and load, and flow sensors). This practical, easy-to-read resource offers insight into the real problems designers face in the course of their daily work, and guides readers toward solutions that will help them to take advantage of the powerful tool that is the intelligent sensor.
