Digital Signal Processing and Measurement Data Acquisition.


Digital Signal Processing

Digital Signal Processing is an area of electrical engineering. Computers are used to gain information that useful signals contain. These Signals are important for a broad range of applications: communications, medicine, geology, consumer electronics, road transport and aviation, industrial production, to name just a few. In most cases these signals originate as sensory data from the real world. The analog-to-digital converter turns them to the digital format and handles them over to the Digital Signal Processor (DSP). A DSP is a specialized microprocessor optimized for the fast mathematically processing in the signal-analysis. Each area of electrical engineering has developed its own methods and algorithms in using Digital Signal Processing in order to reach their desired goals. These might be filtering of information, recognition of pattern, enhancement of video- and audio material, generating of signals, spectrum analysis …


Electromagnetic Compatibility

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is a branch of electrical sciences. The purpose of electromagnetic compatibility is to keep the unintentional propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy under control. EMC ensures the compatibility of a device or a system in its electromagnetic environment. Correct operation of a device includes to minimize the transmission of unwanted electromagnetic interference as well as to reduce the potential vulnerability by electromagnetic interference acting from the outside. EMC is often referred to as the control of EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) in order to avoid/prevent electromagnetic interference effects.


Measurement Data Acquisition

Measurement Data Acquisition (DAQ) is widely used in industry and research. A great amount of measurement data from a diverse range of instruments and sensors has to be acquired and stored reliable under computer control. Every data acquisition task has its own special challenges. A DAQ system consists of sensors, DAQ measurement hardware and a computer with specialized software. The Signal Conditioning, Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) and the appropriate Computer Bus are the key components of a DAQ Device. The operation of the DAQ device is controlled by a computer in combination with specialized data acquisition software in order to process, store and visualize measurement data.
