Mechanical and electronic engineering technology faculty members at the University of Dayton have collaborated on the design of a signal conditioning circuit board for a mechanical measurements laboratory. This board includes amplification and filters necessary to interface a low voltage output from analog sensors with a computer data acquisition system. Printed circuit boards were produced, with easy to understand connections. Multiple units were assembled at a cost of under $20 per board. The price of other commercially available signal conditioning modules is 10 to 20 times that amount. This paper will present the details of the design and performance assessment of the signal conditioning module.
