The Department has three PC labs which consist of 25 workstations equipped with PCs, a projector and a laser printer to serve the courses and the students.
The PC labs work with virtual machines (VM). There are some VMs with Microsoft Windows operating systems and some with Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora, FreeBSD) operating systems.
Some of the applications available in the PC labs are:
- Adobe Suite
- Microsoft Office
- Microsoft Visual Studio
- Microsoft SQL Server
- Java SDK
- Java ME SDK
- Android SDK
- ARM IDE
The Telecommunications lab supports the educational work in the following courses:
- Communication Systems I (5th semester)
- Communication Systems II (6th semester)
- Antennas and Wireless Propagation (7th semester)
- Microwave Communications (9th semester)
Specifically, the equipment of the Telecommunications lab includes the following:
A. An Educational Telecommunications System (5 workplaces) for the experimental training of the students on the basic principles of Analog and Digital communications. Specifically, for each workplace, the Educational Telecommunications System consists of a base with preprinted circuits connected to a PC, on which removable circuits are installed to train the students of the Department on Analog and Digital Communications.
B. An Educational Antenna System (3 work positions) which provides proper application experimentation in different types of antennas (e.g. hopper, helical, flat, Yagi) at frequencies of 1 GHz and 10 GHz.
C. Educational Microwave Communications Systems
D. Spectrum Analyzers, Oscilloscopes and Generators of random waveforms.
The Electronics lab includes 20 workplaces which are specially equipped with oscilloscopes, low and high frequency generators, DC power supplies, AC power supplies and multimeters.
The software packages used in the laboratory for the analysis and design of the electronic circuits is the MultiSim and ADS (Advanced Design Systems). The Electronics lab is mainly used for the completion of laboratory exercises as part of the coursework of Electronics I and Electronics II courses, as well as for the research activities of the School.
Digital Systems & Computer Architecture Lab
The Digital Systems and Computer Architecture lab meets the research and educational needs in core courses and specialization courses of the School. The lab includes:
- 10 work positions with Intel I5/2GB RAM computer stations,
- 3 development inventors kits with the microprocessor Arduino,
- 9 reconfigurable boards of FPG A Xilinx Spartan 3A logic,
- 2 devkit8000 development kits with the processor TI OMAP3530 (600MHz ARM Cortex-A8) with a touch screen,
- 2 beagleboard development kits with the processor ARM Cortex-A8 with DSP support, 4 android mobile phones,
- 2 sets of lego mindstorm
Also, under the management of the lab are:
- an array of 2 computers with 4 parallel processing graphics cards Nvidia Geforce 9800GTX,
- a parallel system with 16 processors Xeon E5520@2.227 GHz 76GB RAM,
- 4 servers with dual-core processors Intel® Xeon ™ CPU 3.40GHz/8GB RAM. The operating systems of the computers are the FreeBSD 9.0, Ubuntu 12 LTS and the Microsoft Windows 7.
The lab equipment is used for the following courses:
- Operating Systems
- Computer Architecture
- Embedded Systems
- Parallel and Distributed Systems
Additionally, the lab equipment is used for the students’ thesis in related disciplines, as well as for the research needs of the School in issues associated with the designing of software and hardware, integrated systems-on-a-chip (SoC) and multicore systems.
