Communication Engineering laboratory focuses on training the students in both analog and digital transmission/reception of signal. The students here start in the analog area by constructing the circuits of amplitude modulation, frequency modulation and phase modulation. A mini AM transmitter is constructed by them in the MW frequency of electromagnetic spectrum and they do a live transmission with minimum power output. The signals are then received in a pocket AM radio. Learning the concepts, with small applications give them plenty of joy and real motivation towards their studies.

The other important area of analog signal processing is the phase locked loop. Students are given NE 565 PLL IC and made to conduct an experiment to find the capture and lock ranges with their designed specifications. Here the students make use of function generators with frequency sweep facility.

The students are enlighted yet in another area is audio systems, widely used to address the public. The students perform the characteristics of microphone. So they gain knowledge in Acoustical Engineering. They also test condenser, coil and piezo electric transducers used in the audio engineering. In the area of pulse techniques, faculty help them in PAM and PWM experiments. In addition to all the above, the lab consists of the fiber optic trainer, analog signal sampling kit, TDM trainer and microwave testbenches.

The Digital Signal Processing and VLSI applications are becoming more prevalent in every day use. The field of DSP/VLSI was developed due to the flexibility offered by the use of digital computers in implementing signal processing algorithms and systems. There is a constant need for designing systems with lower power ,higher speed and lower area. The DSP/VLSI lab is equipped with hordes of personal computers. The students enrich their knowledge by using the software tools like matlab,modelsim,Leonardo spectrum,xilinx,HDL Designer Pro and cadence.
