To innovate at the systems level and have impact in the real world, the discipline of electronics and communication engineering sits on strong technological and theoretical foundations. The outcome is the papers published by the students and faculty in National and International conferences and journals. Some of the research areas of focus are:
VLSI Design Using Cadence Tool
We use ECAD tools, which are widely adopted by industries, are Composer, Verilog, Analog Design Environment, Spectre Circuit Simulator, Virtuoso, Silicon Ensemble, Custom IC and Verification tools.
To familiarize students with the realities of design complexities and IC layout environments they will get exposure to VLSI CAD tools in the following levels – system level behavior analysis, logic verification, schematic, layout, parasitic extraction, and circuit simulation through the laboratory experiments and projects with focus on technology, and techniques to analyze and optimize performance matrices, such as: power, area and signal integrit
Lab VIEW enables to understand basics ,programming techniques ,data acquisition and interfacing techniques of virtual instrumentation and to use VI for different applications . Laboratory Virtual Instrument Engineering Workbench(Lab VIEW) is a system -design platform and development environment for a visual programming language from National Instruments . The programming language used in Lab VIEW, named G, is a dataflow programming language. Execution is determined by the structure of a graphical block diagram (the Lab VIEW-source code) on which the programmer connects different function-nodes by drawing wires.
Lab VIEW includes extensive support for interfacing to devices, instruments, cameras, and other devices. Users interface to hardware by either writing direct bus commands (USB, GPIB, Serial) or using high-level, device-specific, drivers that provide native Lab VIEW function nodes for controlling the device.
Lab VIEW includes built-in support for NI hardware platforms such as My DAQ, Compact RIO , theMeasurement and Automation EXplorer(MAX) andVirtual Instrument Software Architecture(VISA) toolsets. Lab VIEW is an industry-leading visual programming environment that helps automate measurement, test and control of hardware. With hundreds of built-in libraries, Lab VIEW is used by millions of engineers and scientists across the world for advanced analysis, data visualization and virtual instrumentation.
