BIOM 411 - Bioinstrumentation and Design


Introduces transducers and instrumentation systems used in measuring biological variables. Discusses the physical, electromagnetic, and chemical principles of measurement, effects of interfaces between biological systems and sensors, and design tradeoffs. Surveys major electronic circuits and signal conditioning systems for biological and medical monitoring. Laboratory experiments involve construction and characterization of simple transducers, imaging systems, and signal conditioning equipment for biological variables, such as blood pressure, displacement, force, temperature, flow, and biopotentials. Exercises cover conceptual design to detailed design specifications for selected biomedical instrumentation systems. (Y)
