ME 505 - Mechatronics System Design

3 credit(s)
Principles of transducers and sensors and how to interface them with a process in a computer environment. Discussion topics about types of transducers and different sensors include operating principles, modeling, design considerations, and applications. Computer interfacing work includes signal conversion, interface components, and real-time application of microcomputer systems to problems in manufacturing. Component integration and design considerations are addressed by case histories presented by the instructor. Student design projects involve problems from industry that require computer interfacing and experimental techniques. Topics include principles of transducers and sensors, signal processing, data acquisition, and computer interfacing using case studies.
Prerequisite(s): Senior or graduate standing with ECE 255 (minimum grade of C-), or permission of instructor.
Laboratory fee.
