Amplifiers, Processors, Test Systems
To move signals from the physical or chemical domain to the measurement device (e.g., the digitizer) with integrity, a front-end amplifier component is often needed. The front end may be an anti-aliasing, notch or bandpass filter, a differential amplifier, scaling amplifiers, or one of many more special purpose functions. Some examples are shown.
When high-speed processing of inputs is required, FPGAs are the only way to keep up. Two engineering examples illustrate the challenges.
Each one is a special case for IDL attention.
