Communication Systems

In Communication systems lab, there is a lot of scope for the students to study in detail about various types of Modulators and De-Modulators, Transceivers and Spectrum Analyzer along with the different types of Filters and their design and usage and also different types of Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) formats. In this lab, mathematical models are designed and simulated in MATLAB and perform the practical simulation using hardware kits.

Control Systems Lab

Control systems curricula are often viewed by students as theoretical and highly mathematical. Students are often unable to relate the theory to applications in the real world. The obvious solution to this problem is to include lab experiments in the control curriculum. The experiments for the control lab are selected based on the topics for the co-requisite lecture class so that they cover basic principles. They include modeling, analysis, simulation and design of control systems. In this lab, MATLAB software is used to simulate and analyses the real life control systems both linear and feedback.
  • MATLAB Release 2012a

Digital Design Lab

This Lab is associated with a compulsory disciplinary course and serves to consolidate fundamental concepts in the field of Digital Electronics. The objective of the lab is to impart knowledge of the basic tools for the design of digital circuits and to provide methods and procedures suitable for a variety of digital design applications. The lab provides laboratory practice using MSI devices and covers the topics on logic circuits and minimization, Combinational and sequential logic circuit design, Design and application of Counters, Arithmetic Circuit implementation, Shift register Applications etc. This lab also includes HDL tools like Verilog/VHDL which are used to describe and simulate different circuits.

Digital Signal Processing Lab

The field of Digital Signal Processing was developed due to the flexibility offered by the use of digital computers in implementing signal processing algorithms and systems. The goal of DSP is usually to measure, filter and/or compress continuous real-world analog signals. But to deal with real life analog signals from our environment, it is necessary to convert them to digital form, and vice-versa. This lab boasts of plenty of powerful computers preinstalled with MATLAB and Code Composer Studio (CCStudio), and high-speed Digital Signal Processors of the TMS320C6713 Digital Starter Kit (DSK) family by Texas Instruments. Using these, students are able to perform real-time analysis of signals and get hands-on experience about the theory they have learned in the class. This is used as regular lab for undergraduate students. Some research scholar uses this lab for development of algorithms which can be ported to hardware for real time applications.

Signals and Systems Lab

One can use the toolbox to visualize signals in time and frequency domains, compute FFTs for spectral analysis, design FIR and IIR filters, and implement convolution, modulation, resampling, and other signal processing techniques. Algorithms in the toolbox can be used as a basis for developing custom algorithms for audio and speech processing, instrumentation, and baseband wireless communications. Students can create their own scripts and enjoy audio and image processing in Signal Processing toolbox and Image Processing Toolbox. The Symbolic Math Toolbox is also used for Laplace and Z-transform. Fourier transform, Bode and Nyquist plots and digital filtration are processed in the Signal Processing Toolbox. Edge detection in images or shift detection and summation of large amount of pictures of the same subject in a noise via correlation serve can be done. The MATLAB and Simulink greatly help to teach so many important topics in such a short time.
