Microprocessor and Microcontroller LaboratoryThis lab primarily focuses on the design of digital equalizers, encoder and decoders, digital FIR and IIR filters, SSB modulation and quantizers using Matlab and estimate their performance. The knowledge of the students on the latest DSP processors is developed by implementing algorithms in DSP Processors.

Modern society is increasingly reliant on the field of communication for exchange of information, whether by mobile phone, TV, radio, or the internet. The technology underpinning the various methods of communication is electronics. Today's demand is that, these methods of accessing information for work or entertainment must be integrated into a coherent digital network so that users can access information from anywhere instantaneously, with the wide range of flexible, high-performance communication devices. Electronic engineers, with an understanding of communication principles are the key professionals involved in making such advances.

Innovative Design – Project Lab

This Project Lab is an open lab where all students have ready access to design their projects with innovative ideas. The primary purpose of the lab is to provide the space and resources needed by students to complete their Projects. The lab also serves as a meeting location for groups of students working on team projects. Many students also use this lab to work on supplemental learning projects to enhance their understanding of class and lab assignments. The Project Lab is open in all working days for the student’s benefit.

Technical supports are given in the Laboratories for students project work during working hours. Laboratories kept open beyond office hours as per the need.
