This paper discusses the design and layout of a low-cost high-performance data acquisition system PCB for taking voltage measurements in electronic systems. The system incorporates a high precision, external analog to digital converter (ADC) along with analog front-end circuitry to properly condition an applied input signal and achieve higher quality measurement capabilities than are possible with typical integrated (ADCs) found in microcontroller peripherals. The PCB is designed to easily interface with various microcontroller launchpads to provide a low-cost interface to a host PC for collecting and processing measured samples. The system is suitable for taking both DC and AC measurements with the potential for measuring more advanced AC characteristics such as signal to noise ratio and total harmonic distortion.
