The Data Acquisition Handbook has been enhanced to address more practical applications than theoretical measurement issues. Each chapter covers a major topic with sufficient detail to help readers understand the basic principles of sensor operation and the need for careful system interconnections. The handbook also discusses key issues concerning the data acquisition systems multiplexing and signal conditioning circuits, and analog-to-digital converters. This popular handbook has also been used by teaching professionals for the instruction of sensor-based measurement techniques.
