Resistive ladder circuit is easy to analyze Z in R o Fig. 10.10 Infinite R 0 - 2R 0 ladder R o R o R o 2 R o 2 R o 2 R o How well can we predict what really happens in the lab? Resistor values may vary from the nominal value Contact resistances may be important Measuring instruments need to be calibrated

Why do we need D/A and A/D converters? A/D – converts electrical signals from sensors to digital form for signal processing D/A output from digital signal processors is used to control electro-mechanical actuators We want our digital electronic systems (computers) to interact with real world
