Abstract
Content

A communication controller circuit for a wind-tunnel model is undergoing development. The circuit is intended to serve as part of a highly miniaturized, distributed, modular electronic analog/digital data-acquisition system that would be installed inside a wind-tunnel model (see Figure 1). The data-acquisition system would include pressure, temperature, angle, shear-stress, and other sensors plus analog signal-conditioning modules in clusters of as many as eight sensors. The sensors and signal-conditioning modules in each cluster would be connected to a data-acquisition-system (DAS) module, which would contain additional analog signal-conditioning circuits and analog-to-digital converters. Each DAS module, in turn, would be connected to the communication controller, which would effect all digital control and data communications (1) among the sensor modules and (2) between the sensor modules and a remote host computer.
