bullet Smart Sensor Systems (SSS' 2009)



EuroTraining QL

A Four-day EuroTraining Quality Labeled (QL) Approved Engineering Course (ET4233)


20- 23 April, 2009 Delft, The Netherlands




General Information About the Course


Lectures are given by top experts from universities and industries. The prerequisite for the course is a basic knowledge of electrical circuits and systems. Course will be taught in English. Each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance at the course.



Short Description


Recent developments in the field of smart sensor systems are reviewed. After a general overview system details are discussed, concerning: sensor principles, tandem transducers, smart analog interfaces, modifiers, A/D conversion, busses and digital interfaces, DSPs and microcontrollers. A systematic approach towards the design of smart sensor systems is presented. The lectures include case studies and hands-on demonstrations.





The course will be held at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science, Mekelweg 4, Jan Anthony Snijderszaal, room LB1.010 of Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands.
