R & D Initiatives

HFSS Software Lab

  • HFSS has been installed on 7. 11.16 to promote R & D works. This software tool is used in the field of designing at Microwave ranges for the following
    • Antennas
    • Microwave transitions
    • Waveguide components
    • RF filters
    • Three-dimensional discontinuities
    • Passive circuit elements


Texas Instruments Innovation Lab has been established in GNITS ECE Department on 11/01/2018 to create an ecosystem of innovation where students across all disciplines can meet to be creative and hone their technical and leadership skills. The lab is well established with MSP microcontrollers (MCUs) from Texas Instruments (TI).The microcontrollers are 16-bit and 32-bit RISC-based, mixed signal processors designed for ultra-low power applications. These microcontrollers from TI provide designers with enhanced performance and more peripherals on chip while using less power. MSP ultra-low-power microcontrollers are ideal for applications where the majority of the microcontroller life is spent in standby. Typical applications of these processors include low-cost sensor systems that capture analog signals, convert them to digital values and then process the data for display or for transmission to a host system.

  • Accessories in Signal And Image Processing
    • Input devices to acquire audio, video, images and finger print are available, projects related to speech and video processing are developed using the following equipment
      • Zoom H4N Handy Portable Digital Recorder
      • Logitech Web camera
      • Finger print sensor R305 BMES devices
      • IoT Arduino board with 10 sensors

Proposals Submitted to AICTE to obtain funding during Dec-17-18

  • AICTE-ISTE  Refresher course on Channel Coding Techniques

  • Short Term Training Program - Embedded System in IoT

a) Vector Network Analyzer:  Freq.range: 9KHz -13.6 GHz. o/p Power: > 0 dBm, + 10 dBm, dynamic range: > 115dB, typical: 123 dB, measurement time: < 75 msec.

b)MIMO: With MIMO, wireless system performance can be increased without increasing power consumption by the use of multiple antennas. The transmitted signal progresses through different wireless channels from the transmitter antennas to the receiver antennas and creates a capacity gain by exploiting channel diversity.
