Applied lectures (4h): During the applied lectures the student solves practical exercises concerning the design of an experimental layout, the choice of a sensor, the design of a measuring chain and the setup of a Digital Acquisition System. Laboratory Lectures (20h): The students will extensively work with virtual laboratory based on a notebook, Arduino Uno board and shields. Virtual instruments like Oscilloscope, Wave Generator, Spectrum Analyser and Digital Filters will be simulated by means of software that are based on the netbook soundcard. The Arduino Uno Board will be used like a DAQ in order to perform simple experiments. The Laboratory activities are divided in there macro practical experiences and the student has to prepare a report for each of them. The reports will be discussed during the oral exam.

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Prova orale obbligatoria;
The exam consists of: written and oral exams. Written exam (1h): The student has to answer to multiple choice questions. Oral exam: The student is allowed to attend the to oral exam if he provided at least 60% of the correct answers in the multiple choices test. The oral exam is focused on: a) the discussion of the reports written at the end of the laboratory activities; b) the topics discussed during the lectures. In order to pass the exam the oral exam has to be higher than 18/30. The final mark of the exam is the algebraic mean between the mark of the written and the oral exam.
