ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING MATERIALS & SEMI-CONDUCTOR DEVICES LABORATORY


This laboratory introduces to the students about the V-I characteristics of basic semiconductor devices (like BJTs, Diodes, JFETS, UJTs) and power devices (like DIAC, SCRs) and their electronic applications. The experiments included in the curriculum are designed to demonstrate the theoretical concepts presented in the classroom to the students. Some additional value added experiments are also included in the end.

Working in the laboratory familiarizes the students with the basic electrical components, measuring instruments and provides hands on experience of working with workbench instruments like CROs, function generators and formation of circuits on the Breadboard.

The students are provided with a comprehensive Lab Manual, which is almost self explanatory. All the experiments are well documented with clear circuit diagrams, theory and procedures involved, so that the students are able to perform the experiments with ease and proper understanding.
