a circuit that adjusts the level of the signals coming in or out
a device that converts one type of electronic signal into a another type of signal
An electronic unit that improves the quality of the signal from a transducer (sensor). It may provide: amplification, filtering, and/or linearization.
A circuit module which offsets, attenuates, amplifies, linearizes and/or filters the signal for input to the A/D converter. The typical output signal conditioner is +2 V dc.
A device that serves as an amplifier, filter, rectifier, or performs some other process that transforms a raw acquired signal into one more readily and accurately readable by an A/D converter board.
A circuit to modulate a signal so as to make it intelligible to, or compatible with, another device, including such manipulation as pulse shaping, pulse clipping, compensating, digitizing, and linearizing.
A device placed between a signal source and a readout instrument to change the signal and/or bandwidth. Examples: attenuators, preamplifiers, charge amplifiers, filters.
