High-performance multi-sensing devices represent a good compromise between the integrated and hybrid microelectronic because their limited production and high-tech design. New low-cost electronic interface to process signals generated by different types of physical sensors are a prerequisite in order to guarantee efficient and reliable components able to work even in the most difficult industrial environment. The purpose of this work is to define design criteria and accuracy evaluation procedures by means of a dedicated theoretical framework. Extended experimental tests confirmed these results in the particular case of tactile sensors for robotics showing the excellent ratio between performance and costs of the system. Specific applications of this work can be found also for many other types of sensing elements typical of high-performance industrial devices.
