OPTICAL COMMUNICATION RESEARCH LABORATORY
The Optical Communication Laboratory at SUST engages in research to improve the performance, dependability, and trustworthiness of telecommunications networks. The goals of the Optical Communication Laboratory are to identify, model, simulate, and demonstrate next-generation networking technologies, and to add to the knowledge base for next generation networks; to train tomorrow's network engineering innovators; and to foster industrial collaboration. Our current and recent research projects focus on Microwave photonics and optical signal processing. MWP is the field of immense interest in recent time as it is the only viable solution to meet the future need of real time ultrafast communication overcoming the bottleneck of electronics. The laboratory is equipped with a variety of computers loaded with Opti system 12.0 software. This state-of-the-art software provides the researcher with opportunity to simulate real life scenario of communication engineering in the lab. Apart from the commercial software the optical communication lab also has basic optical communication components like, LASER, photo diode, BERT, high speed oscilloscope, optical fibres, and many more small components. We are in the process of building up the practical components so that it allows us to test the simulation results. Every year students from this lab participate in national and international conferences to present their published papers on the field.

A modern VLSI chip is a remarkably complex beast: billions of transistors, millions of logic gates deployed for computation and control, big blocks of memory, embedded blocks of pre-designed functions. How do people manage to design these complicated chips? Answer: a sequence of computer aided design (CAD) tools takes an abstract description of the chip, and refines it step-wise to a final design. The main focus of this teaching and research Laboratory is to make students understand to build his/her own VLSI Circuit, synthesize, verify and implement the design into the target specific device. The laboratory is equipped with high performance computers, CAD Tools: Microwind, Magic VLSI, DSCH, Altera Quartus software. The target device is Altera Cyclone II FPGA device.
