A histogram-based method for quasi-static test of analog-to-digital converters has been proposed for standardization aims. The test exploits the use of small-amplitude triangular waves. Different signal offset values are used to fully stimulate the converter input range. The reduced amplitude and slope of the input triangular wave with respect to the(More)
A remote laboratory for teaching purposes in the field of measuring experiments was activated. Students can access automatic measuring setups and instruments via a geographic network and directly carry out real experiments. This laboratory has been devised on the basis of de-facto networking standards so that students are required to use only a simple(More)
A fast digital integrator (FDI) with dynamic accuracy and a trigger frequency higher than those of a portable digital integrator (PDI), which is a state-of-the-art instrument for magnetic measurements based on rotating coils, was developed for analyzing superconducting magnets in particle accelerators. Results of static and dynamic metrological(More)
A swarm intelligence-based procedure to detect critical conditions of a patient, affected by a specific disease, at an early stage in absence of clinician, is proposed. The procedure is to be integrated inside a remote health care system for patients at home, where some physiological parameters related to a specific disease are being monitored. A(More)
A non-invasive piezo-film-based measurement method for haemodynamic assessment is proposed. The design of a system, able to reconstruct the blood pressure waveform online by dealing with problems arising from the piezo-film capacitive nature in the targeted frequency range (from quasi-dc up to 12 Hz), is illustrated. The system is based on a commercial(More)
