Laboratory Facility

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering focuses on experiential learning and to that effect lays emphasis on maximum laboratory exposure to the students. The Department has state-of-the-art laboratories which facilitate practical learning and project work.

Major laboratories of the Department

The laboratory is equipped with experimental setups on analog and digital communication systems, and measuring instruments. Verification of concepts and project ideas are facilitated through the MATLAB simulation software. This laboratory focuses on exposure to Mobile Telephony, Satellite Communication and Consumer Electronics.

This laboratory hosts the Anechoic Chamber to measure the directional patterns of the antenna up to 18 GHz. It has specialized equipment like the Keysight’s RF signal generator, Keysight’s Vector Network Analyzer (VNA), Hameg’s Spectrum analyzer, automated Antenna Measurement System (AMS) kit with 12 sets of antenna, Transmission Line Analyzer (TLA), X-band Microwave Test benches, and Microwave Integrated Circuit (MIC) Trainer Kit. The laboratory also has Keysight Technologies’ Genesys RF simulation and design software.

This laboratory aims at giving exposure to students to design and experiment on applications in the field of Speech, Image and Video Processing including Computer Vision. The laboratory is equipped with –

  • Fixed-point Digital Signal Processors from Texas Instruments
  • Digital Media DM355 which is a highly integrated, programmable platform for digital camera image and video applications
  • DSP + ARM Low-power processor OMAP L138
  • Low-power single-board computer development platform
  • Analog Devices SHARC and EZLITE processors ADDU-21535-EZLITE  (BLKFN) and ADDU-21065L-EZLITE (SHARC) with software
  • Mixed Signal Oscilloscope

Providing the main horsepower to the Department, the VLSI laboratory is actively used in VLSI design as well as testing and verification. Providing support to students, research scholars and faculty members, the facility has progressed well over the years by contributing many research articles, research projects and consultancy. The laboratory is equipped with latest industry-standard software such as –

  • Mentor Graphics for front End & back end design
  • Visual TCAD
  • Microwind
  • FPGA Advantage
  • Cadence for digital as well as analog VLSI design

The Hardware Laboratory of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering provides the hardware and software resources useful for laboratory experiments and project activities related to various courses, such as Microprocessor and Microcontroller Programming, Embedded Systems and Digital System Design. The laboratory is a designated place for students to perform hands-on work for Embedded Systems, Internet of Things (IoT) related projects. Development environments such as Keil IDE, MPLAB IDE, Altera Quartrus etc. are installed in the systems. Educational practice boards for programming microprocessor and microcontroller architectures like 8051, PIC, ARM, ATMEGA are also available. The laboratory has electronic equipment such as Logic Analyzers, Digital Storage oscilloscope, Universal Programmer, Arduino boards, ARM boards, PIC development boards Raspberry Pi boards, CPLD and FPGA trainer boards etc. which are commonly used in Embedded Systems Design and Development.

The Department laboratories have more than 175 computer systems with latest configuration and required software to meet the need of software training and projects. In addition to specific software in different laboratories students are given exposure to HFSS for Antenna system design and analysis, OPSIM for fiber optic communication system design, Genesys for microwave system design and extensive use of MATLAB in different laboratories, projects and research.
