The objective of this MQP was to use analog and other design techniques to build a circuit using one of Analog Device's new IC's. After much thought, research, and collaboration, the project chosen was the "Mini PCB Input Sensor and Display Circuits". This project has two parts: the first being a small, inexpensive, and portable circuit designed to be distributed to students who attend WPI's ECE undergraduate recruitment open houses. The second phase is a more complex version of the portable circuit, and would allow the user to connect to a PC via USB and display the output of the various sensors on a computer monitor. This paper guides the reader through the design process as seen through the eyes of the designers, detailing the unique processes considered to reach the final outcome.
