DAQ Amplifier -  This simple amplifier is useful for boosting small signals up to about +-12 volts.  Many low-cost data acquisition devices have full-scale inputs of +- 10 volts which limits their sensitivity, and the negative part of the input range is usually wasted, cutting the available resolution in half.  This amplifier runs on 5 to 6 VDC and generates +-15 VDC to power a single, low-power op-amp.  The op-amp circuit includes an offset voltage capable of converting a single-ended positive input into a symmetrical bipolar output.  Current consumption is low enough to run the amplifier from a lantern battery for over a year of continuous duty (about 1 mA).  Switching to a micro-power op-amp will give decades from the same battery.  Using a battery allows many experiments to "float, " often eliminating ground loop problems encountered when hooking experiments directly to a computer.   __ Contact: Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Data-acquisition system draws less than 10 m -  EDN  Design Ideas08/03/1995   The data-acquisition system in Fig 1 draws approximately 2.2 mA at 3.6V.  It consists of a state machine that converts the synchronous serial data from the A/D-converter chip into a standard baud rate framed with start and stop bits for easy interface with a computer's COM port.  The counter IC1A controls the state machine; IC2 decodes the states.  The first step is to program the A/D converter by shifting four bits into it.__ Circuit Design by Noor Khalsa, EG&G, Los Alamos, NM

Decoder Safely Drives Data-Bus Buffer -  07/18/96 EDN-Design Ideas Under control of the decoder chip, a 74LS245 buffer separates the onboard data bus from the ISA bus.   Figure 1 shows a common way of implementing an I/O decoder for the ISA (or similar) bus.  Under control of the decoder chip, a 74LS245 buffer separates the onboard data bus from the ISA bus.  If the DIR and G/ signals derive only from decoder inputs, they change state simultaneously at the beginning and end of an I/O cycle.  Such behavior can cause undefined operation of the buffer with possible contention on the local or ISA bus (particularly if you use a faster version of the 245).__ Circuit Design by Piotr Mazur, Wikom, Warsaw, Poland

Differential Data-Acquisition System Runs At 625k Samples/Se -  11/09/95 EDN-Design Ideas Many applications require high-resolution, multichannel, large-bandwidth signal acquisition.  Some examples are vibration analysis, vehicle telemetry, and telecommunications.  You could use an array of A/D converters to address such applications, but ADCs are costly and consume considerable board space.  Figure 1 shows a complete and cost-effective, high-speed, differential, eight-channel, 12-bit acquisition system that uses few parts.__ Circuit Design by Kevin Hoskins, Linear Technology Corp Milpitas, CA
