This laboratory is used to teach students the fundamentals of electronic telecommunications.
Principle Technical Officer John Wilmot supervises this laboratory. He will normally be found in the Final Year Projects Laboratory room C406.
The laboratory is normally only open for lab sessions as shown on the time table.
However the laboratory can be open for project students needing to use specialist software as long as there are at least two students working together.

These are on a vpn allowing students to experiment on various network protocols and software.
A range of equipment, including oscilloscopes, power supplies and signal generators are held on the racking in the lab.
There are 5 PCs with specialist optical network design software enabling students to learn the fundamentals of optical networking and to design large network systems.
EMC testing is now an important aspect of all electronic design. The Laboratory has a specially constructed screened room for the testing of electronic equipment.
There are a range of lab kits available covering both analogue and digital modulation techniques.
There is also equipment available to demonstrate Digital Audio Broadcast techniques.
