Microcontrollers Lab

Microcontrollers are used in wide variety of applications right from day to day life applications such as automatically controlled products and devices, industrial control drives like automobile engine control systems, implantable medical devices, remote controls, office machines, appliances, power tools, toys and other embedded systems as well as modern metering and measurement devices.
The lab is equipped with 8051 Microcontroller Kit and interfacing units such as ADC interface module, 7- segment display with calculator type KBD interface, Dual DAC interface, DC motor interface with DC motor, Computers, Toggle switch interface module and MSP 430 Micro Controller kit giving an hands on experience about the programming and utilization of microcontrollers.
