Webinar: Sensors and How to Use Them

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) is offering a webinar, titled: Fundamentals of Designing with Semiconductors: Sensors and How to Use Them. The online seminar will review the concepts of physical signals and explore why and how they must be changed into analog electrical signals, and how they can be processed for the highest reproduced accuracy. The webcast will take place January 12th at noon EST. The Sensors and How to Use Them webinar will be archived after the webcast takes place.

The event is the first of twelve webcasts on the Fundamentals of Designing with Semiconductors. The Fundamentals webcast series is offered monthly throughout 2011 and covers signal chain design challenges from signal capture to conditioning, conversion and processing. Each is followed by a Q&A with a technical expert.

The Sensors and How to Use Them webinar will introduce the concepts of physical signals, why and how they need to be changed into analog/electrical signals (through the use of devices such as sensors, microphones, antennas, and photodiodes) and then changed back into physical signals (using devices such as actuators, speakers, and motors) and how signals can be processed for the highest accuracy reproduction. The webcast is ideal for students and engineers new to the field, as well as those more experienced engineers looking for a refresher on this or any other part of the signal chain, design, and layout.
