Abstract: The principal aim of this PhD thesis is a deep study of an artificial olfaction system (Electronic Nose – EN) mainly dedicated to space applications. The rather particular environment destined to host this apparatus has required a particular attention on many of the design details in order to infer about all those electrical and mechanical features which are necessary to overcome the very stringent stress parameters imposed by the space flight international organization. The request of a particular effort oriented to the overall optimization has produced a general quality factor which, we believe, will influence also all the terrestrial applications where performances may be of a lower level. The adopted strategy which was hold along the past three years has regarded the following points: a) miniaturization of the previous EN (Libra Nose) without reducing the digital flexibility and including all the interface circuits in a single FPGA; b) improvement of the analog part, in parti...
