Electronic Instrumentation Lab

In the Electronic Instrumentation Lab at York College students acquire hands-on experience with basic electronic instrumentation, such as power supplies, waveform generators, digital multimeters and oscilloscopes.  Students also work with software packages for circuit simulation and data acquisition.  Students use these resources along with a wide-range of sensors and motors to build a variety of electronic devices and systems, such as AC and DC motor controllers, data collection devices, amplifiers, and simple security devices, and mobile robots.

The Electronic Instrumentation lab supports the following courses:

  • Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering
  • Design & Analysis of Analog Circuits

There are 12 lab stations (2 students per) and each station consists of the following equipment:

  • Desktop computer
  • 1x Wavetek Meterman function generator
  • 1x Fluke 8808A digital multi-meter
  • 1x Fluke 117 digital multi-meter
  • 2x Agilent E3648A DC power supply
  • 1x Agilent DSO3102A 100MHz oscilloscope
  • 1x Jameco breadboard

The lab has an ample supply of tools and components for students to build test circuits.

Software licenses have been obtained for students to use for coursework:

  • MATLAB and Simulink. Additional toolboxes include Control System, Data Acquisition, Signal Processing, Fixed Point, Signal Processing, Neural Network, Statistics, Symbolic Math.
  • OrCAD circuit simulation software
