More frequently the transducer is used in conjunction with electronics specially designed to properly bias it and perform some preprocessing of the resultant signals before presenting them to the end-user. The addition of application-specific electronics provides significant value by allowing the end-user to view the system as a black-box, without having to concern himself with the details of how the transducer is implemented.
