In EE Lab 1, students build, test, and experiment with active analog circuits. The lab draws on material from EE 3313 Electronic Circuits 1 and introduces some material covered in EE 4313 Electronic Circuits 2.
Student groups also build and demonstrate a student-proposed project at the end of the semester. Students work in groups of 2 or 3 at one of a dozen lab stations each consisting of the following equipment:
In EE Lab 2, students build, test, and experiment with more advanced analog circuits. The lab draws on material covered in EE 4313 Electronic Circuits 2 along with a few ideas from EE 3213 Electromagnetic Engineering.
The course is based around the design and implementation of two printed circuit boards, one an audio power amp and the other an RF mixer. Students learn real-world skills when measuring and debugging these circuits.
Students work in groups of 2 or 3 at one of eight lab stations each consisting of the following equipment:
The Computer Engineering Laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio supports a complete academic learning experience of the computer engineering program starting at the freshman level and going all the way to the doctoral level courses. It houses 26 PCs, including one for an instructor. Each of these PCs is equipped with several development/evaluation kits and supporting software.
The development kits include:
The Microprocessor-based courses use FreeScale microcontroller-based kits. The hardware is supplemented with the state-of-the-art integrated software development suits. The laboratory is partially supported by FreeScale and Xilinx through equipment and development kits donations.
