Undergraduate Labs

Analog Electronics Laboratory 

Analog electronics laboratory is designed to give students a basic understanding of electronic circuits, characteristics of electronic devices and to aid in the art of recording data. It houses a variety of test equipment including oscilloscopes, signal generators, counters, analog/digital multimeters and power supplies. Projects and other activities carried out in the laboratory include the analysis and design of circuits utilizing both passive and active devices such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors and op-amps. 

Digital Electronics

This laboratory is designed to give students “hands-on” experience with hardware such as discrete digital devices, microprocessors, microcontrollers and FPGAs. Students working in this laboratory utilize Hewlett-Packard design/development systems, embedded systems development platforms, programmable logic development systems and microprocessor trainers. A variety of advanced test equipment such as logic analyzers, digital storage oscilloscopes, digital multimeters and PC coupled instrumentation are available for testing.

Computer Laboratory 

The Department computer laboratory consists of over 60 personal computers for students and five UNIX servers. The local area network links all the laboratories and staff rooms and has internet facility through the university/LEARN network. The computer laboratory is used by the undergraduate students for their assignments project work, internet browsing, e-mail and other computational needs. The entire department including lecture rooms, have wireless internet access.

Telecommunication Laboratory 

Telecommunication laboratory facilitates the students to understand the basic concepts of telecommunication such as modulation, multiplexing, detection of radio signals by construction/simulation.  

The Telecommunication laboratory is equipped with most modern equipment in the telecommunication field. A sweep generator test bench is used to measure the single tuned and double tuned amplifiers constructed. Spectrum analyzers are used to measure amplitude and frequency modulation. Students utilize wireless and land telephone systems implemented in¬side the laboratory for their studies. Laboratory experiments of television system are conducted using the TV trainer panel in the laboratory.

Opto-electronics Laboratory
