India's PSG College of Tech Implements Agilent Labs

PSG College of Technology in Coimbatore, India has bought 20 Agilent Technologies lab stations for use in its undergraduate-level courses in engineering and electronics. The Multipurpose Lab Station (MPLS) consists of measurement equipment, including waveform generators, power supplies, and oscilloscopes; and software, such as vector signal analysis and test, measurement, and automation software. The courseware also includes teaching slide sets and problem-based student labs.

"We have experienced firsthand the benefits of using Agilent equipment," said Professor S. Jayaraman, head of the Electronics and Communication Engineering department. "We believe in the value proposition of the Agilent Education Program and the MPLS. Its easy-to-use bundled solution gives us the flexibility to design, develop, and conduct our own innovative lab experiments. The MPLS will greatly aid our students' learning and will be used extensively in our education and research curriculum."

The college has integrated the MPLS into various classes, including digital electronics, communication engineering, and integrated circuits courses. The institution has 5,200 students.
