|Abstract:||The emergence of the various applications of electrochemical sensors and devices, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy became one of the most important tools for characterizing and modeling of the material and interfacing the sensors. The ability to sense in an automatic manner enables a wide variety of processes to be better understood and optimized cost-effectively. This thesis describes the development of a low-cost, miniaturized, multiplexed, and connected platform for dielectric impedance spectroscopy (DIS) designed for in-situ measurements and adapted to wireless network architectures. The platform has been tested and used as a DIS sensor node on a ZigBee mesh and was able to interface up to three DIS sensors at the same time and relay the information through the Zigbee net for data analysis and storage. The system was built from commercial microelectronics components and benefits from an on-the-fly calibration system that makes sensor calibration easy. The thesis reports characterizing and modeling of two electro-chemical devices (i.e. nitrate sensor and optically-transparent electrically-conductive glasses) and also describes the microelectronics design, the Nyquist impedance response, the measurement sensitivity and accuracy, and the testing of the platform for in-situ dielectric impedance spectroscopy applications pertaining to fertilizer sensing, water quality sensing, and touch sensing.|
