Department of ECE
This lab familiarizes you with the basics of instrumentation. The lab introduces you to resistors, capacitors, diodes and light emitting diodes (LEDs). Students learn to design and simulate electronic circuits, and then assemble, measure, and evaluate the circuit characteristics using laboratory instruments. Students develop competency in measurement science utilizing modern advanced instruments, which are similar to instruments presently being used by engineers in industry. Experiments in Networks and Systems use passive electronic components and courses in Electronics progress to experiments in transistors and integrated circuits. Students use National Instrumentís Multisim, P-SPICE, or MatLab for simulation.
Signal & Image Processing Lab
This laboratory will enable the students to conduct various analysis and synthesis based experiments on digital signal processing (DSP) and develop a deeper understanding of the design and implementation issues at both hardware and software (algorithm) level including real-time issues. The learning objective here is to supplement DSP theory course with implementation level understanding of basic discrete-time signal operations and system properties, implementation of DFT and FFT, aliasing in frequency and time domain, design of FIR and IIR filter, finite register length effect, efficient filter structures, multirate systems, filter bank and wavelet based analysis, etc. The courseware would also make the students familiar with some interesting experiments on Texas Instruments DSP kits as well as FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array).
This Lab covers digital design topics such as digital logic, sequential building blocks, finite-state machines, FPGAs, timing and synchronization.This lab is focus on design of different type of circuits that increase understanding of course. The students design and implement a final digital project of their choice, in areas such as games, music, digital filters, wireless communications, video, and graphics. The course relies on extensive use of Verilog for describing and implementing digital logic designs on state-of-the-art FPGA.
Microprocessor and micro Controller Lab
To understand the internal organization of INTEL 8085, 8086 and 8051 Microprocessors and Assembly Language Programs using the instruction sets of processors and to study the interfacing of the processor with various peripheral devices. Microprocessor laboratory is equipped with microprocessor kits and interfacing devices. The students achieve encoding skills in Assembly Language and Interfacing with various devices. The students have in depth knowledge in writing and executing 8086 8085 and 8051 Assembly Language programs.
Students develop a solid understanding for analysis of communication signals in time domain and frequency domain. Students learn to design and simulate many types of communication circuits, and then assemble, measure, and evaluate the circuits using laboratory instruments. Additionally, an Analog Filter Design course is offered for students to develop expertise in that aspect of signal processing. Students develop competency in measurement science by utilizing modern advanced instruments, which are similar to instruments presently being used by engineers in industry.
The lab provides, in an instruction setting, computers equipped with industry-level VLSI design software, for digital and mixed-signal VLSI circuits design. All PCs are loaded with the following CAD VLSI design tools: Cadence, Tanner Research (L-EDIT) and MOSIS-compatible technology files for design of digital, analog/mixed-signal VLSI circuits in submicron/deep submicron CMOS technologies.
RF and Microwave Lab
Students learn to design and simulate RF and Microwave circuits and antennas, and then fabricate, measure, and evaluate their prototype using modern advanced laboratory instruments, which are similar to instruments presently being used by engineers in industry.
