INTEGRATED CIRCUITS LAB
A comprehensive undergraduate engineering program must provide opportunities for the application of theoretical concepts to the solution of realistic engineering problems. The Linear Integrated Cicuits Lab introduces the concept and application of operational amplifiers. Laboratory assignments clarify textbook formulas and examples, as well as help to close the gap between theory and real-life problems.
The Digital Logic Lab is where the students gain practical experience in the use of basic hardware components. Through experiments, students become familiar with gates, multiplexers, decoders, flip-flops, counters, registers and displays.
Digital Integrated Circuits Trainers, Cathode Ray Oscilloscopes, Function Generators, Integrated Circuits Testers, Multi-meters, Regulated Power Supplies etc.

This is our busiest set of laboratories, in terms of utilization. This is the main lab where basic experiments like device characteristics and basic analog circuits are held. This lab is general enough to hold a number of experiments suitable for giving students enough exposure to enable them to easily adopt experiments in more advanced laboratories in the department.
All basic electronic devices and their characteristics, applications can be studied. Using these devices, the small electronic circuits and mini projects can be constructed and checked. In order to introduce the students with basic components of electronics this lab is furnished with advanced CROs, function generators and digital multi meters. Students can perform practical on P-N junction diode, Zener Diode, rectifiers and filters, transistor biasing and their characteristics in different modes, RC coupled amplifiers and FETs.
