Electronics and Instrumentation Laboratory

Dr. D with students in instrumentation lab.Our Electronics and Instrumentation Laboratory is equipped with modern computers (equipped with LabVIEW, LabWindows, and DAQ cards, and GPIB), classroom sets of analog and digital oscilloscopes, arbitrary waveform generators, 6.5 digit multimeters, and prototyping systems at each of its nine stations. We also have two 400+ MHz digital oscilloscope that are used by students in the advanced electronics and instrumentation course. We also possess two Tektronix 6 GHz oscilloscopes with active probes. These scopes are extremely powerful and are used for projects in electronics and electro-optics. Adjacent to the lab is a room-sized Faraday cage that can be used for high-accuracy electronics experiments. Our anechoic chamber is also suitable to use as a Faraday cage. A soldering station and PCB layout facilities allow students to build their own field ready projects.
