Circuit Board 91019: Transducer Fundamentals


The Transducer Fundamentals course guides students through the circuits and devices used to interface computer and control circuits. Students learn the principles of input and output transducers and how physical quantities, such as heat, position, proximity, and force, are converted to electrical signals for detection and processing.

This circuit board can be interfaced with the 32-Bit Microprocessor circuit board to demonstrate the principles of data acquisition and microprocessor control.
