The department is equipped with the following laboratories:
- Basic of Electrical & Electronics Engineering Lab
The basic electrical and electronics lab is one of the first electrical engineering lab courses students will take. In this lab, students become familiar with making basic electrical measurements using laboratory instruments such as digital multimeters (DMMs), power supplies, function generators, and oscilloscopes. Once they’ve developed some competence in the use of these tools, students begin learning how basic components such as resistors, diodes, transistors, and operational amplifiers function. By the end of their lab coursework, students should be able to design, assemble, and use basic electronic circuits and have the skills necessary to measure and characterize their designs.
- Microprocessor & Interfacing Lab
Microprocessor laboratory is equipped with 8085 microprocessor kits, interfacing devices, Macro Assembler and IBM PC’s. The students gain programming skills in 8085 Assembly Language and Interfacing with various devices such as Stepper Motor, Analog-to-Digital converter, Seven Segment display. The students have in depth knowledge in writing and executing 8086 Assembly Language programs with 8086 Macro Assembler. Students also do C programs using IBM PC’s.
- Digital Signal Processing Lab
The DSP lab has both a software and a hardware component. In the software part, students carry out a number of computer experiments written in C or MATLAB, illustrating some of the fundamental concepts and applications of digital signal processing, such as quantization, sampling and aliasing, block processing by convolution, real-time filtering on a sample-by-sample basis, signal enhancement and noise reduction filters, direct, canonical, and cascade realizations of digital filters, spectral analysis by the DFT and FFT, the design of FIR and IIR digital filters, and digital audio effect applications, such as dynamic range control. The choice and number of computer experiments may vary from year to year. The hardware part of the lab illustrates the programming of real-time signal processing algorithms on the Texas Instruments TMS320C6713 floating-point DSP. Programming of the DSP chip is done primarily in C (and some assembly) using the Code Composer Studio integrated development environment.
- Electrical Technology Lab
In Electrical Technology lab students learn the use of devices that control the flow of electrons so that useful work is done. The raw materials or “stones” for their work are electrons; the bricks are simple circuit elements such as resistors, diodes, capacitors, inductors, transistors, and integrated circuits (IC’s). These circuit elements allow engineers to precisely control the flow of electrons. The electrical engineers use these “bricks” to construct devices that many of you are probably familiar with. These components lie at the heart of devices such as radios, televisions, telephones, and computers etc. The purpose of electrical technology lab is to introduce students with implementation of practical concepts that are taught in theory. The electrical technology lab is equipped with Norton Theorem apparatus, Ohm’s law kit, series and parallel resistance kit, KVL and KCL apparatus etc. Students are encouraged to use their creativity and problem solving skills to explore and think about the unique problems in the world of electrical and computer engineering through experimenting in their electrical lab.
The Embedded Systems programme focuses on enabling technologies and design methodologies for computer systems which are embedded as integral part of larger systems, designed for specific control functions of devices with various electronic and mechanical components.
More than 98% of the world’s processors are located in embedded systems. Embedded systems are used everywhere, including a wide variety of personal and industrial systems such as satellites, robots, cars, airplanes, mobile telephones down to the smallest radio transceiver, elevators, health-care equipment just to mention a few. In all these areas, embedded systems confer added value to the products by either extending the range of the delivered functionalities or by enhancing the quality of a “traditional” functionality that is rendered to the user. The goal of the ES major is to give students a holistic, system-based, and multidisciplinary view on embedded systems, their development, and their integration. European companies are world leading in embedded systems design and have a strong demand for highly skilled, creative engineers, innovators, architects, and specialists.
Microwave components and systems have made a great impact on our society Department is motivated to work towards the design and analysis of microwave circuits, components and sub-systems including micromachined devices for RF, microwave, millimeter wave applications. Micromachined antennas, phase shifters, and filters are some such components. In addition we are involved in the design of RF MEMS switches for space applications and a low cost option for such devices.
Electronic Project Lab contains all the parts and instructions to assemble educational and fun experiments and circuits. It is used by all students of electronics department whenever they are making the projects. Students build their own knowledge by exploring amplifiers, analogue and digital circuits plus learn how to read schematic diagrams. Build a special lighting effect, radio transmitter and receivers, amazing electronic sound effects, cool games and MORE. Hardware components in this Includes a built-in speaker, LED digital display, integrated circuits, transistors, transformers, diodes, resistors, capacitors, LEDs and lots of other components. A built-in breadboard allows easy wiring and connection of components. Students also make software based projects in which they have a good understanding of the concepts behind computer microprocessors and programming. Thus this lab gives the practical exposure to the students with real electronic world.
The laboratory consists of hands-on assignments which accompany the lectures of ESE170. The goal is to illustrate concepts discussed in the class and to give students the opportunity to build and test real systems. Lab exercises make use of the Xilinx ISE tool chain, which is a powerful state-of-the-art CAD tool for designing and implementing digital systems on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) boards. The ESE undergraduate lab (Frederick Ketterer Lab) is equipped with the Xilinx ISE software tools. The system consists of an integrated set of tools that allows one to capture designs with schematic entry or a Hardware Description Language (HDL), and simulate, implement and test these designs. The use of programmable logic devices takes away the tedious task of wire wrapping individual gates and allows one to concentrate on the creative part of designing the circuits. The lab assignments will introduce you gradually to the Xilinx tools and will serve to illustrate the material covered in class. The first set of labs deal with combinational circuits and the second set introduces sequential circuits. This course uses an FPGA board from the Digilent Corporation, which has a Xilinx Virtex2P chip on-board.
Electronic Design Lab provides researchers with access to advanced electronics, assists with integrating electronics technology into research programs, and aids in electronics technology transfer to users by providing ongoing technical support. EDL works in cooperation with many diverse academic departments for a symbiotic approach to problem solving.
This course provides a lab that allows students the opportunity to enhance their understanding of digital electronics. Emphasis is placed on number systems, Boolean algebra, logic families, medium scale integration (MSI) and large scale integration (LSI) circuits, analog to digital (AD) and digital to analog (DA) conversion, and other related topics. Upon completion students should be able to demonstrate a general understanding of digital fundamentals.
