Test and Measurement Instruments
Design Gopher -
Product Design, EDA, ASIC Design.
Test Measurement and Test jigs:
Test Tools are needed for Troubleshooting and Repairing
Electronic Gadgets, Equipment, Electrical
and Machines. Precision Instruments are required
for calibration of field and machine control electronics. These
are also required by the R&D engineer for design and
development of new products and trying out new concepts.
- Test and Measurement.
In Production testing, Production Engineering, Quality
Assurance QA-QC etc.
You need to build Test Jigs,
Configure Automated Testing depending on the size of project or
budget allocated; yet it has to be made flexible, scalable and
modular. These require instruments or blocks that can be adapted
and reconfigured or even interface with a computing network for
automated testing, reporting and analysis.
Test and Measurement Instruments designed by delabs in the
Special Electronics come with every tool or gadget these days, A
Slide calipers has a LCD display, Digital Readouts on mechanical
instruments can help measure even sub-microns easily.
Analytical and Chemical Instrumentation is another
specialized niche. Then we have medical
which is more demanding in quality and
requires sensors that are small, very sensitive and safe.
Instrumentation goes into all these and beyond. The day we find
water on mars, It is only because of a precision instrument at
the helm of things.
Circuits you need for scaling an analog DC value.
Oscilloscope Functions and Fourier Series. Periodic Waveforms.
Watch Sine, Square, Triangle and Sawtooth Waves and Study
Controls. This DIY
is a Real Time Graph of Volts Y and Time X at
any node of a circuit. It can show both AC and DC.
Load an equation of your own and see it as a waveform on this
web scope. Paste a Formula in the Equation text box, load it, it
will be rendered as waveform on scope. Learn from this page ....
Let us assume Physics, Chemistry and Biology as Verticals on a
Horizontal plane called Science. A part of Physics developed
into Magnetism and Electricity, which further evolved into
Electrical Engineering a Technology. When a branch of Science is
applied to develop, evolve and maintain Life on this Planet it
becomes a Technology. Electrical Engineering as a Technology has
evolved and branched out into many specialized domains. With the
coming of Semiconductors
and the Advancements of Material Technologies, Electronics
Engineering emerged as a foundation or a Horizontal for many new
One such Vertical is Instrumentation, here you know Industrial
Process Control is one and the other is Test and Measurement.
The third branch we learn about today is "Analytical
Instrumentation Technologies" which is more like an
Oblique, it Cuts thru Physics, Chemistry and Biology and many of
its sub-branches. It also supports the areas called Life
Sciences, Bio Technology, GeoSciences, Materials Science etc. .
Here i have posted some analytical instruments ... Laboratory
