Rapid advances in high quality sensors and integrated circuits have enabled the affordable realization of very high resolution digital output devices. New analog to digital converters and piezoelectric accelerometers are being combined to deliver unprecedented broadband resolution and noise immunity. Standardization of the interface between digital sensors and microcontrollers provides for cost-effective measurement system development. Applications such as condition based maintenance and structural acoustics are poised to expand rapidly with the advent of this technology. [See NOISE-CON Proceedings for full paper.]
