VLSI and DSP Lab
This lab is located in the Department of Electrical Engineering and has latest sets of computers, CAD tools, test equipment and host of VLSI and DSP training equipment as teaching aids as well as development systems for researchers. Such a sophisticated facility is perhaps not available in any other academic institution in Pakistan. This enables students, staff and faculty to carry out research and development work. Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Research Laboratory was established in the year 2002 for research and development in VLSI technology. The Lab is equipped with state of the art hardware and software tools.
A number of projects have been carried out by students under the supervision of senior faculty members in the area of DSP, Communication systems and Digital Systems design. These projects cover pure research, product development and solving Industrial problems relating to VLSI technology. The teaching lab has advanced computing facilities and software tools where students are provided with hands-on training on FPGA, CPLD and DSP development boards.
General areas of research in our laboratory are:
- System-level design of complex systems
- LSI logic design
- Hardware design for complex systems
- DSP-code development for complex systems
- Building blocks for image processing systems
- Complex Digital Control systems for the industry
