R&S Receives a Contract to Equip Electronic Engineering Teaching Lab in the UK

Rohde & Schwarz has won a contract to supply test equipment for the newly refurbished Electronic Engineering teaching laboratory at the University of Essex. The new lab is central to the University’s teaching of Electronic Engineering and is used by undergraduate, MEng and Masters Students.

The University of Essex has equipped each workstation with an R&S RTB2000, which offers an oscilloscope plus logic and protocol analyzer, waveform and pattern generator and digital volt-meter in a single compact case. This not only reduces the overall investment in test equipment but also saves valuable space at each workstation. The built-in web server functionality enables students and lecturers to display their oscilloscope screen content to the classroom and over a network. Other features of the oscilloscope that appeal particularly to students include gesture recognition.

The university has also implemented a lab management software solution with Rohde & Schwarz to streamline lab setup between classes. It automates lab bench assignment and instrument configuration, as well as presenting remote screen content.

The R&S NGE100 DC Power supplies purchased by the University of Essex offer high efficiency combined with low ripple, plus a variety of comfort functions that are not usually found in this class of power supplies. R&S HMC8012 Digital Multimeters are also installed at each workstation.
