The Electronic Design Laboratory has a floor area of 80 m2 and is designed for working with electronic devices and systems. It offers generic measuring and testing equipment as well as the normal services provided by a technological research and development laboratory. The Laboratory boasts a collection of conventional resources like floors and tables designed to minimise static electricity build-up, air conditioning, cordless telephones, multiple local IT network connections, conventional and uninterrupted electricity supply and numerical code access control. It also has a collection of specialised electronic measuring and testing devices like logic analysers, oscilloscopes, signal generators, power supplies, counters, spectrum analysers and multimeters. The Laboratory is managed by the Electronics Department.
The laboratory is used for carrying out measurement and experiments in an environment completely isolated from external electromagnetic interferences.
The laboratory has the infrastructures and equipment to characterize astronomical sensors
Within its capacity of building scientific instrumentation, the IAC has extensive experience in the design and development of electronic systems in general and, especially, for astronomical instruments and devices
