Some of the ASIC Digital Designs performed are Adders, Multipliers etc. The Code is written in VHDL or Verilog, Simulated, synthesized and verified using Test bench.
Some of the Analog Designs performed are Op-Amp, R-2R DAC etc. All these designs are verified by DC, AC, Transient Analysis and LVS, DRC, ERC are verified. Finally RC extraction and back annotation completes the design verification.
Power Electronics Lab
Power Electronics lab is an application of study of the most of the industrial controls at higher power requirements. The lab with is sophisticated equipments are used for the implementation of power electronic units like Choppers, Inverters, Converters, AC Voltage Regulators etc. Power devices like Thyristors, Power UJTs, MOSFETs, IGBTs are used for the realization of these control circuits. Different modules specifically designed to perform the experiments like Analysis of different Power devices, Triggering methods, Commutation Techniques and Speed control methods for various motors are being used.
Micro controller LAB:
8051 Lab curriculum includes both software and interfacing modules. The objective of the lab with respect to software module is to understand the types of data transfer, to perform arithmetic and logical operations, branch and subroutines, Bit Addressability. This is executed by making use of Keil MicroVision Simulator. Interfacing Modules such as Dual DAC, Hex Key pad, Elevator, Calculator, Temperature Controller and Speed Control of Stepper and DC motors are programmed making use of four I/O Ports which are integral part of 8051.
