    This laboratory 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 below.

    PCB equipment  

    The PCB maker provides an ideal PCB prototyping machine for virtually any engineering environment. First LPKF 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.
