Electronics & Communications Engineering Department
Electronics Circuits Lab
The Electronics Circuits lab is a practical gateway for the second year students. Experiments related to the theory courses, Analog Circuits I and Analog Circuits II have been incorporated as part of the practical courses, Analog Circuits and Simulation Lab I and II in the third and fourth semesters respectively. The experiments are framed in such a way that the students are able to apply and effectively put into practice theoretical concepts involving various types of diodes, BJTs, opamps, timer ICs, etc. The lab consists of equipments like CROs, function generators, power supplies, voltmeters, ammeters, IC testers and a varied range of electronic components that are required for the experiments done. Students design and set up circuits to verify the output waveforms/ characteristic curves obtained with the expected result. Troubleshooting skills are sharpened and a physical verification of the theory learnt is an encouragement to their continuous learning process.
Digital Integrated Circuits Lab
The Digital Integrated Circuits laboratory is a unit of Department of Electronics Engineering.This laboratory enables the undergraduate students to get a strong understanding of the basic concepts and techniques in digital electronic circuits. The learning objective of this laboratory is to supplement the theory course of Logic circuit design with an adequate introduction to both combinatorial and sequential logic circuits such as, adders, subtractors, multiplexer, demultiplexer, encoders, decoders, 7-segment display and flip-flop, register, counter, etc and various combinations of these. This laboratory is equipped with FGs, CROs, Fixed and Variable Power supplies, Analog and Digital IC testers. The lab is well equipped to do any logic circuit related experiments.
