•Course Purpose
In generally science and measurement are closely correlated and product technologies have been developed with developing measurement technologies.
The purpose of the course is to develop an understanding of the fundamentals of measurement systems, including sensor devices and signal processing circuits.
The goal is to be able to do the following by learning this lecture.
1. Understand the principle of measurement and device configuration. 2. Selection of sensor devices required for measurement. 3. Signal processing required for measurement

•Prerequisite Subjects
Electronics, Electrical circuit

•Course Topics
1. Outline (systematization of measurement etc.)
2. Operation principle of sensing elements
3・Signal detection and conversion
4・Signal processing

Please read the designated part of the textbook before each class.

Distribute printed maters by the lecturer.

•Additional Reading
We will introduce appropriate books as the lecture progresses.

•Grade Assessment
Acceptance criteria are to be able to properly explain the measurement and the device configuration required for the measurement, and to correctly understand basic concepts and terms related to signal processing required for the measurement.
Credits will be awarded to those students who score 60 or more. Grades are as follows:
S:100-90, A:89-80, B:79-70, C:69-60, F:59-0.
