Exploring the Universe of Digital Measurement Technology

Digital measurement technology has dramatically evolved over the recent years, transforming into an indispensable asset across myriad technical applications. It equips us with the capabilities to accurately capture and process measurement data, laying the groundwork for diverse applications such as automation technology, aviation, automotive manufacturing, drive technologies, construction, innovative energy storage solutions, research and development, and beyond. But what lies at the heart of digital metrology?

Aims of the Course

This comprehensive course unravels the principles behind electronic or digital measurement technology. You’ll explore electronic functions including AD-converters, DA-converters, sampling systems, and more, and gain the skills to design and construct corresponding circuits. Beyond mastering the theoretical foundations, you will also get to see these principles come to life through hands-on experiments. By the end of the seminar, you’ll be adept at applying the knowledge you’ve acquired directly into your professional environment.
