ABSTRACT

Data Acquisition Systems (DAQs) are responsible with the process of sampling measurement signals (i.e. those embedding information about a real-world physical quantity) and converting the resulting samples into digital ones that can be used by a computer for numerical processing. In particular applications, DAQs must comply with tight requirements such as those for size, field-portability, energy consumption, data throughput, and data security. For example, Compressive Sampling (CS, also known as Compressed Sensing, Compressive Sensing, or Sparse Sampling) theory demonstrated that it could be adopted as a signal processing framework for most of the measurement signals, which exhibit sparsity in certain transformation domain. In few words, CS offers the possibility to acquire less data (i.e. samples) than Nyquist rate sampling-based methods, maintaining the possibility to reconstruct almost the entire information afterwards.

Therefore, adopting CS for measurement applications will give the possibility to reduce the complexity of DAQ devices and systems, to speed up the acquisition and transmission procedures, and to decrease the energy consumption, just to name few advantages.

In this Special Session, original papers are invited to be submitted pointing out measurement methods and instrumentation exploiting advanced DAQs that comply with application driven tight requirements.
