Communications Laboratory

Communication is an essential to modern society as electricity, providing both connectivity (cell phone, WiFi, Internet) and storage (hard drive, flash memory). The field of communications spans signals processing and error control coding for transceiver design, information theory to identify fundamental performance benchmarks for different systems, the design and analysis of different networking protocols. Signal processing, which refers to hardware and software to produce, transform and analyze signals (e.g., radio waves, sound, image, video, EEG, MRI), is a fundamental tool in every discipline in engineering and the sciences. Sophisticated digital signal processing algorithms, the cost of implementing which has been driven down leveraging Moore's law, are at the core of an ever increasing number of devices, including communications devices (cell phones, WiFi), digital music/video players, televisions, GPS receivers, radar and sonar systems, and medical imaging and monitoring.

Electronics laboratory

Electronics is widely used in information processing, communication system, and signal processing. The ability of electronic devices to act as switches makes digital information processing possible.

Electronics is the science of how to control electric energy, energy in which the electrons have a fundamental role. Electronics deals with electrical circuits that involve active electrical components such as vacuum tubes, transistors, diodes and integrated circuits, and associated passive electrical components and interconnection technologies. Commonly, electronic devices contain circuitry consisting primarily or exclusively of active semiconductors supplemented with passive elements; such a circuit is described as an electronic circuit.

Today, most electronic devices use semiconductor components to perform electron control. The study of semiconductor devices and related technology is considered a branch of solid-state physics, whereas the design and construction of electronic circuits to solve practical problems come under electronics engineering. Interconnection technologies such as circuit boards, electronics packaging technology, and other varied forms of communication infrastructure complete circuit functionality and transform the mixed components into a regular working system.

Electronics LAB at IET is developed for Laboratory work activities for different subjects and also for R & D activities like basic electronics, embedded system design, mechatronics etc. The students will get exposure to basic hardware utilities like function generator, oscilloscopes and different power supplies while development kits such as Microprocessors, Microcontrollers, digital logic design boards and Xilinx FPGA kits. Using these resources students can develop different applications, hardware prototypes and Models for different areas of Analog and digital electronics.
