LCAL0003: Electronics Laboratory
LCAL0003: LabsLand Consumer Access License for Electronics Laboratory
DigiKey link: N/A
The LCAL0003 licenses provide access to the Electronics remote laboratory listed below. It is oriented towards education (universities and colleges, but also schools) and training, in introductory electronics courses and courses that involve basic analog electronics, characterisation of electronic components, or electronics laboratory instrumentation such as oscilloscopes, function generators and multimeters.
This product does not require the purchase of any hardware or equipment. The hardware of the remote laboratories is distributed in universities and other institutions around the world, and these licenses give remote access to that distributed equipment, without having to purchase the equipment.
This product includes access to remote laboratories for 6 months, for a unique person per license. Each license cannot be exchanged or transferred to another person. The license can also not be used by automated software. Standard Terms and Conditions of LabsLand apply.
With this laboratory you can dynamically connect real electronics circuits using sets of typical components (resistors, capacitors, diodes, and others) and a web-based user interface. You can then control various instruments including an oscilloscope, a function generator, power supplies and a multimeter, connecting them to the circuit and using them to take measurements.
The system is not a simulation: circuits are dynamically and physically constructed using purpose-specific relay matrixes, and measurements are physically taken using real instruments.
The system supports a fast seamless user-switching mode that ensures that multiple students (up to 120) can seamlessly use it at the same time and take measurements. This seamless user-switching mode leverages the fact that the measurement times for individual measurements are low.
For safety and practical reason the number of different circuits that students can build is constrained, but a large catalog is available.
Target courses & topics
The Electronics Laboratory is designed to be useful for courses that cover topics such as:
Introductory electronics (Ohm's Law, Kirchoff, basic circuit design)
Characterization of basic electronic components
Laboratory instrumentation for electronics (oscilloscope, function generator, power supply, multimeter...)
Ready to use contents
In the case of the LabsLand Electronics laboratory, LabsLand provides a comprehensive catalog that includes the list of supported circuits ordered by their type (e.g., basic resistor networks, RLCs, diodes). Although more circuits are often available, instructors are encouraged to use or at least start with the ones in that catalog. The catalog is web-based and the circuits can be built manually, but also downloaded to be directly loaded into the Electronics Lab interface.
Catalogue of Supported Circuits (English)
Every institution (whether it is a school, university, or company) using LabsLand has a LabsLand space.
A LabsLand space is a personalized web where institutions can organize the access to the laboratories by their students. In LabsLand, an institution typically has multiple groups of students using different laboratories. For example, a University or Community College might have multiple classes using remote laboratories, or even in a single class, they might have different groups of students (e.g., Spring 2023, Fall 2024).
The license includes:
In the case of individual users, it includes a license in a special generic space of LabsLand.
In the case of institutions, LabsLand will create a space for the institution with the laboratories included. It is possible to combine different licenses in a single LabsLand space.
