ECE Systems Integration Laboratory
Integration Laboratory is a state-of-the-art Electrical and Computer Engineering
(ECE) laboratory to complement classroom instruction and undergraduate research
in the design, simulation and fabrication of electronic circuits and systems.
is utilized to deliver hands-on experiments and projects in circuits,
electronics, test and measurement, and electronic system design and
integration. The students become proficient in the use of industry-standard
tools such as Cadence Pspice for
circuit simulation, NI-LabVIEW for
data acquisition and analysis, and PCB maker for the design and manufacture of
printed circuit boards. The design flow of the electronic systems is shown
The laboratory workstation,
as shown below, comprises laboratory equipment such as function generators, an oscilloscope,
frequency counter, and a flat panel monitor connected to the desktop PC with
data acquisition hardware and software.
The PCB maker provides an ideal PCB prototyping machine for
virtually any engineering environment. First
CircuitCAM is used to control all production data, modify design, import data,
and export data; then LPKF BoardMaster is employed to
import production data generated by LPKF CircuitCAM and control the circuit
board plotter; LPKF ProtoMat is finally adopted to drill the circuit board prototype.
