To get access to Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS), log into https://my.engr.illinois.edu/labcheck, then select Electrical and Computer Engineering to view current lab usage. Follow instructions on the screen to remotely access one of the EWS lab computers. (Note: The instruction may tell you to disconnect from VPN, however, in practice, leaving VPN connection does not affect the connection to EWS machines. You will need VPN connection to access Jupyter server from your local machine. You could also access Jupyter server from your EWS remote machine as well)
When using ADS via EWS remote server, you will have to store simulation/data files etc. on your EWS Windows account. Transfering data in and out of which can be done seamlessly on your local machine if you mount your directory to your local machine. This article shows you how to do that with illustrated pictures.
A lab kit for ECE451 includes a nano Vector Network Analyzer (VNA)
and a student board.
Information for obtaining a lab kit will be updated as soon as it is available.
