applications of Digital coding and modulation techniques, Fiber Optic Communication, Characteristics of
microwave waveguide components and MMIC components. This lab is equipped with Oscilloscopes,
Function Generators, Modules for Digital Modulation and Demodulation techniques and Power Supply units.
To enhance precise measurement and observe waveform with better clarity APLAB Digital Storage Oscilloscopes are used. Three MMIC test benches and three microwave test benches are used to conduct experiments in GHz frequency range. Various digital coding and modulation kits are used apart from discrete components to demonstrate the basic concepts involved in digital communication and NI MULTISIM is used to simulate these circuits and verify the results. An OFT kit is used to demonstrate communication and multiplexing through Light waves.
This lab is primarily divided in to Simulation and Emulation. Using MATLAB the DSP operations such as Linear and Circular Convolution, Auto and Cross Correlation, Verification of Sampling Theorem, Computation of FFT and IIR and FIR Digital Filter Design are simulated. These same experiments are emulated using TMS DSK6713 Kits
The Microprocessor 8086 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, bit and string manipulation instructions, branch/loop instructions.
