Tektronix supports university lab with T&M equipment

Royal Holloway, University of London, has officially opened its new Beatrice Shilling Building which includes state-of-the-art teaching laboratories in partnership with Tektronix and Rapid Electronics, the UK-based distributor of educational test equipment.

The brand-new technology-led electronic engineering facility residing in the £20m Beatrice Shilling Building, named after the pioneering British aeronautical engineer and motor racer, is the home of these new teaching and advanced research laboratories.

Sponsored by Tektronix, the laboratory enables instructors, lab managers and students to focus on gaining the critical hands-on skills they need to excel in the real world.

The new 160 seated stations, across two laboratories, allows first and second year students to perform practical electronics experiments on 80 benches under the supervision of their instructors and lab managers.

Each of the 80 benches is equipped with Tektronix and Keithley products including: basic and mixed domain oscilloscopes, arbitrary function generators , power supplies, digital multimeters (DMM), source measurement units (SMU), battery simulators and USB-based real-time spectrum analysers.

“We are very excited at the opportunity to work with a prestigious university like Royal Holloway, and to work with Rapid Electronics, in supporting this project,” said Maria Heriz, Vice President, EMEA Commercial Operations at Tektronix.

“We are leading the way in not only supporting better teaching, but also enhancing a full learning experience using real-world leading edge Tektronix solutions. This significant investment in new technology and teaching laboratories is providing high quality facilities for our students.” said Professor David Howard, Head of the Department of Electronic Engineering at Royal Holloway, University of London. “We’re pleased to be able to provide our students with Tektronix and Keithley solutions to support them in their learning.”
