Engineering Test Benches Equipped with Oscilloscopes, Multimeters, Arbitrary Signal Generators, DC Power Suppliers
Keysight Technologies announced, in collaboration with the University of Sheffield, a new engineering teaching lab located at the university’s new 81m pounds (122m U.S. dollars) Diamond building. The facility, with its unique aluminium diamond shaped exterior façade, will be home to engineering undergraduates.
The new laboratory holds 80 test benches and will be used by the faculty and student of engineering.The key purpose of this lab is to provide the students with access to leading edge industry standard test equipment, allowing them to have the academic and technical skills required to excel in today’s demanding industry.
Keysight equipment includes its MSOX2012A oscilloscopes, U8031A 30V/6A DC Power Suppliers,34450A 5.5 Digit Multimeter and 33511B 20MHz arbitrary signal generators. The equipment was supplied to the university through Keysight’s Premium Distributor Aspen Electronics based in Harrow.
For advanced final-year industry premier solution projects, specialized RF and semiconductor test equipment is available. This includes the Keysight N991XA FieldFox combination network spectrum analyser, Keysight E4980AL Precision LCR Meter and Keysight B2902A Dual Channel Source Measure Units.
It’s expected that 3,000 students each year will use the new laboratory in their electronic engineering studies. The six-story Diamond building boasts specialist teaching facilities including a range of lecturetheaters, seminar rooms, open-plan learning spaces, a library, IT services and space for informal study, including a café.
“The Diamond offers the best interdisciplinary engineering teaching space in the country and part of that is due to the excellent facilities and equipment on offer,” said professor Stephen Beck, University of Sheffield’s Electronic Engineering Teaching Lab. “I am excited that we can give students the chance to use Keysight’s test equipment.”
