Improve Your Data Acquisition IQ!

1   Hour | Webcast - recorded | Where & When


There are a number of test equipment choices in the data acquisition market, ranging from plug-in modules to standalone data acquisition units. To select the optimal equipment for your application, it is important for you to evaluate your measurement performance needs, including sampling rate, channel count, amplitude resolution, and accuracy. With so many choices available today, you will want to choose a flexible solution that can be easily reconfigured for your applications.

Data acquisition is a term that encompasses a wide range of measurement applications, all of which require some form of characterization, monitoring, or control. No matter what the specific application, all data acquisition systems either measure a physical parameter (temperature, pressure, flow, etc.) or take a specific action (sound an alarm, turn on a light, etc.) based on the data received. Simply put, data acquisition is about measuring parameters of physical systems to gain insight into their behavior. The process of data acquisition includes sensing physical behavior, converting this behavior to electrical signals, sampling these signals, and analyzing them to gain insight into the behavior. This webcast will cover ideas for improving your data acquisition knowledge and skills.

Major points of discussion:
• The merging of engineering disciplines
• A basic definition of data acquisition
• Theoretical signals and the real world
• Difference between transducers and sensors
• The purpose of signal conditioning
• Does resolution lead to accuracy?
• Is this a static or dynamic measurement?
• Transforming the time and frequency domain
• Data acquisition system types (architectures)

This webcast is intended for engineers, and technicians who are responsible for the physical (electro-mechanical) design validation of their companies’ products. Also, for scientists and engineers of national laboratories involved in research, and engineering departments at universities involved in research and education.


Dave Tenney, Product Manager, Keysight Technologies

Dave began working at Hewlett-Packard in 1984, in the test & measurement group of the company. During his 30 years as the company evolved from HP to Agilent to Keysight, Dave has held multiple positions in marketing with a special emphasis in product planning and marketing for dynamic signal analyzers, data acquisition systems, and general purpose instruments including waveform generators. As product manager, Dave is responsible for gathering customer insights for defining new products, and then introducing these products to customers. Dave is quite accomplished at working with lead customers, representing customer requirements during product development, positioning and pricing the products, and directing the marketing for new product introductions as well as working closely with the channel.
