Agilent Technologies have introduced a new range of integrated curriculum-based solution kits for educators teaching analogue-electronics, digital-systems and RF-communication classes. This new range further expands Agilent's range of education kits, which include solutions for ‘Basic Electronics’, ‘RF Circuit Design’ and ‘Digital Systems’. Each solution includes undergraduate engineering courseware, a mix of teaching slide sets, problem-based student labs and industry-standard measurement equipment. An introductory video on the concept and advantages of Agilent's education solutions is also available.
According to Mike Kawasaki, Manager, Agilent Education Programme, these curriculum-based solution kits help educators to optimise the use of equipment and time, enhancing their teaching curriculum. Through the use of complete classroom solutions and project-based assignments, educators can use Agilent's integrated solution kits with great ease without any compromise to performance or quality, boosting their teaching and research capabilities.
Following are the new education kits from Agilent:
- Agilent Analogue Electronics Lab Station: The Agilent Analogue Electronics Lab Station focuses on semiconductor fundamentals, circuit analysis and applications, helping students to explore functionalities and applications of diodes, transistors, and op-amps in a circuit. Its integrated curriculum and hands-on lab experiments and assessments enable students to better grasp the concepts and fundamentals of analogue electronics coursework.
- Agilent Digital Signal Processing Lab Solution (DSP): Targeted at undergraduates studying digital signal processing, the Agilent Digital Signal Processing Lab Solution (DSP) focuses on digital system design, digital programming and digital logic design for digital electronics classrooms. It incorporates Altera's FPGA Development and Educational tool kit.
- Agilent Digital RF Communications Training Kit: The Agilent Digital RF Communications Training Kit features the principles of digital communication and wireless standards for RF communication courses. The kit uses industrial equipment and software solutions to help students assimilate into the industry. Its integrated curriculum also comes in an editable format, allowing lecturers to customise material according to their classroom subjects.
