Name of the exercise

Pico Board - Hall Effect Measurement

Responsible for the exercise

Dan Octavian Savu, Jean-Cristophe Garnier, Niko Neufeld

Description of the exercise

TBD

What will the students learn

- how to measure the hall effect using a very simple data acquision board
- how to read data (resistance measurement) using a serial interface from the scratch board
- sensor data visualisation
- calibration

Duration

2 hours

List of material

- scratch board
- RS232 to USB cable (not necessary if the computer already has a DB9 serial port, just use a simple serial DB9 to DB9 cable)
- hall probe sensor GH 700
- 3 axis hall probe adapter
