Abstract
The paper describes a truly miniature system for data acquisition and control, dedicated for photoacoustic measurements. Due to intensive use of electronics and digital signal processing most of expensive and/or inconvenient elements of photoacoustic setups, like mechanical chopper or lock-in amplifier, were eliminated. The advantages of the designed device are very low cost, small size, and high functional flexibility. Most of the measurement factors, e.g. analog path gain, light source modulation frequency, number of samples a period, etc. are programmable and can be changed at run-time. Implementation of real-time and stroboscope PAS signal sampling makes possible to acquire high resolution samples while preserving wide input bandwidth. Due to in-circuit programmable components, upgrades of the device are very easy. Small size and low power consumption make the device a very good choice for implementation of portable photoacoustic instruments.
