In this video, you will learn how to wire and read variable-resistance sensors by wiring up and programming the PSoC to read a potentiometer. You will learn about the effects of bit resolution on analog-to-digital conversion and the quantization factor.
To complete this lab activity, make a video that includes the following in one video:
(1) You saying your name (2) Your LCD screen showing the angle of the potentiometer, in units of degrees
Graduate and Undergraduate deliverables are the same today.
Many sensor properties, including many of the common sensor errors, can be read from a 'sensor response curve'. In this video, you will be introduced to the sensor response curve, and you will learn how common sensor properties and errors can be read from the sensor response curve.
