Instructional Labs


Digital Logic Circuits Lab

The digital logic circuits laboratory provides students the basic hands-on opportunity to practice their knowledge learned in digital logic circuits design. It teaches the fundamental steps on computer engineering technology. Initially couple of lab exercises are given on combinational circuits using logic gates on breadboards. As the students get familiarized with the properties of the fundamental gates and circuits, students start working on more complicated circuits using MultiSim software.

During the middle of the semester, students get involved in writing HDL code using FPGA platform on   NEXYS 2 and NEXYS 3 boards.

Software Engineering Lab

The Software Engineering lab is equipped with 25 modern Personal Computers. Two major laboratory courses taught in this lab are i) Microcontroller Programming, and ii) Software Engineering. Students develop their skills in Java Programming and MatLab programming in this lab.

Some lab exercises in Microcontroller Programming, for example, are: i) sending data from one port to the other, ii) debugging program while data move from one port to the other, iii) displaying  numbers using 7-segment display, iv) activating buzzer on trainer board, v) data import from sensor elements, vi) toggling bits on PortB, etc,

Microprocessor Lab

The Microprocessor laboratory is located in Room 208 of S. R. Collins Engineering Technology Building. The lab is equipped with 12 desk top computers, 12 oscilloscopes, 12 function generators, and different kinds of microprocessor simulation boards. Two major laboratory courses taught in this lab are i) Micro Peripheral Hardware Lab, and ii) Single Chip Microprocessor Lab.

Mixed Signals and DSP Solutions Lab

This new laboratory is equipped with test equipment and training boards for Mixed Signals and DSP solutions experiments. There are two laboratory courses in each area directly useful for both CPET and ELET majors. Mixed signals laboratories consist of measurements and testing of analog and mixed signal situations. The DSP solutions laboratories enable students to acquire skills to develop and program for DSP applications.

Circuits and Communication Lab

This laboratory is equipped with test equipment to conduct laboratory experiments in the area of DC circuits, AC circuits, Network Analysis, and Communication circuits. Students build various circuits on bread boards and carry out tests using latest electronic equipment. Students work in groups and are required to use computer programs to carry out simulations. Students achieve better understanding of these fundamental topics by comparing theory, experimental results and computer simulation results.

Electronics and Instrumentation Lab

This laboratory is equipped with latest test equipment useful to test various electronic devices, sensors, amplifiers and instrumentation systems. Typically measurements are carried out by the accessing data by a computer connected setup for each station. This facility is also available for students to test their senior project.

General Purpose Computing Lab

Twenty five computers of the latest model with software related to all courses taught in Engineering Technology programs are readily available in this laboratory for students to use any time.  Students use this facility for homework preparations, project and simulation works and writing programs as needed by various courses.
