Communication Engineering laboratory focuses on training the students in analog and digital transmission/reception of signals. The students start in the analog area by constructing the amplitude modulation, frequency modulation, and phase modulation circuits. They build a mini AM transmitter in the electromagnetic spectrum's microwave frequency and do a live transmission with minimum power output.
The signals are received in a pocket AM radio. Learning the concepts with small applications, gives 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 enlightened, yet in another area is audio systems, widely used to address the public. The students perform the characteristics of the microphone. So they gain knowledge in Acoustical Engineering. They also test condenser, coil, and piezoelectric transducers used in audio engineering. In 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 test benches.
The electronics lab is uniquely equipped with the latest signal generators, oscilloscopes, digital trainer kits, and measuring instruments. Students of various branches design and test their analog/digital/mixed signals digital circuits as part of their curriculum. Guidance is provided to the students by a team of expert faculty and lab technicians. The labs are kept open after college hours to enable the students to engage themselves in designing/testing the circuits in their leisure hours. Students are grouped into small teams and guided to do their mini-projects using the facility mentioned below. The R&D activities were also carried out in the electronics lab.
The Microprocessor lab is a dedicated space where students can gain practical experience and hands-on training in working with microprocessors. In this lab, students will learn about microprocessors' architecture, functionality, and programming. They can work with different microprocessor models and learn to interface them with various peripherals and devices.
The lab has the necessary hardware and software tools, including microprocessor development boards, programming software, and debugging tools. Students will learn to write and debug code for microprocessors using programming languages. Students will develop their skills in designing and implementing microprocessor-based systems through practical exercises and projects. They will learn how to program microprocessors to perform tasks such as data processing, control external devices, and communicate with other systems. The Microprocessor lab provides a hands-on learning experience that complements theoretical knowledge and helps students understand the practical aspects of working with microprocessors. It prepares them for careers in embedded systems, digital design, and other fields that involve microprocessor-based systems.
In Microwave Lab, the students are exposed to microwave active devices like Klystron, Gunn diode and passive devices isolator, circulator, slide screw tuner, magic tee, directional coupler, horn antenna, attenuator, and terminations. The students perform all the experiments as prescribed by the university. The optical communication laboratory is set up to complement the topics studied in the optical communication theory course. The lab is equipped with fiber optic trainer kits and modules to enable the study of components of an optical communication system.
The students perform experiments to study the characteristics of optical sources (LED & LD), optical detectors (LD & APD), and optical fibers. Fault detection in a fiber link is studied using the OTDR module. An FSO module enables the study of optical signal transmission in free space. The lab is equipped with Connecterization and splicing kits.
Digital Signal Processing is becoming more prevalent in everyday use. The field of DSP is developed due to the flexibility digital computers offer in implementing signal processing algorithms. The DSP Lab is based on MATLAB Software which is used for identifying and describing discrete and digital signals & systems. This lab also helps us analyze how digital signals differ from analog counterparts. A digital signal processor (DSP) is a specialized microprocessor chip, with its architecture optimized for the operational needs of digital signal processing. The DSP is equipped with hordes of personal computers and Digital Signal Processors. The students enrich their knowledge using the software tools and the DSP Processors.
VLSI Lab focuses on designing small and large-Scale Integration. It creates integrated circuits (ICs) by combining thousands or millions of transistors onto a single chip. It involves developing and fabricating complex electronic systems that perform various functions, such as processing, memory, and communication.
Front-End DesignThe front-end design stage of VLSI Design involves digital design using hardware description languages (HDLs) such as Verilog, System Verilog, and VHDL. This stage includes designing the digital logic circuits and verifying their functionality through simulation and other verification techniques. It also includes designing for testability, ensuring that the circuits can be effectively tested for defects.
The back-end design stage of VLSI Design focuses on the physical implementation of the circuits. It includes characterization and CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) library design. This stage also involves fault simulation to ensure the courses can tolerate faults and physical design, which includes placement and routing of the components on the chip.
VLSI Design is a multidisciplinary field combining digital design, circuit design, and physical design to create highly integrated and efficient electronic systems. It is crucial in advancing technology and enabling various applications in different industries.
