About this book

This book presents innovative solutions in the design of precision instrumentation amplifier and read-out ICs, which can be used to boost millivolt-level signals transmitted by modern sensors, to levels compatible with the input ranges of typical Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs).  The discussion includes the theory, design and realization of interface electronics for bridge transducers and thermocouples. It describes the use of power efficient techniques to mitigate low frequency errors, resulting in interface electronics with high accuracy, low noise and low drift. Since this book is mainly about techniques for eliminating low frequency errors, it describes the nature of these errors and the associated dynamic offset cancellation techniques used to mitigate them.

About the authors

Rong Wu was born on November 4, 1981. She received the B.Eng. degree in microelectronics from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, in 2003. After one year of graduate studies in Fudan, she started the M.Sc. program in electrical engineering at Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands, in September, 2004. She received her M.Sc. degree from TU Delft in February 2006 and her M.Sc. degree from Fudan University in July, 2006, both in electrical engineering.

In October 2006, she joined the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory of the TU Delft, pursuing her Ph.D degree on the subject of precision amplifier and sigma-delta ADCs for sensor read-out. In December 2011, she received her Ph.D degree. Currently, she is with precision ADC group of Analog Devices in Wilmington, MA. Her research interests include sensors, precision analog and mixed-signal interface electronics.
