The Electronics Department Teaching Laboratories occupy the entire fourth floor of the Physics/Electronics teaching tower and provide laboratory space and equipment for all our teaching from foundation year laboratory classes to Masters degree projects.
The main teaching laboratory provides 50 workstations for undergraduates (2 per workstation) doing electronics laboratory work. Each workstation provides the following test equipment:
In addition, each workstation is equipped with a networked Dell PC system running a range of software for printed circuit board (PCB) design, circuit design and simulation, integrated microcontroller design, word processing and data analysis.
A wide range of more advanced equipment is available for project work, including:
The teaching laboratory is equipped with twin data projectors and screens together with a radio microphone system and a digital visualiser. The whole lab can watch presentations, videos and other demonstrations from their workstations.
Also on the 4th floor are two undergraduate project laboratories where undergraduates work on their final year projects. There are 50 workstations in these two laboratories, 36 of which are equipped with Dell PC systems.
Expert technical assistance is available from the Technical Support Services (TSS) staff.
A wide range of electronic components are maintained 'in stock' in the Undergraduate Resource Area on a 'free issue' basis for use during laboratory sessions or other personal work that students may be doing, for example related to the student electronics society: Shocksoc.
The Department has developed a range of bespoke teaching equipment modules for use by undergraduates undertaking laboratory work. These modules have all been designed by the technical support staff in conjunction with academic teaching staff.
