Computer Architecture Teaching Labs

AC Department has a number of resources that meet the needs of laboratories of the subjects that are taught in FIB. In particular there are 2 labs, (D6-003 and D6-003bis) work as a teaching  classroom (laboratory classes are held).

Teaching labs (D6-003 and D6-003bis)

These two classrooms have 51 m2 each. Both classrooms have 25 workplaces, VGA projector fixed at the ceiling and screen of projection.

The classroom D6-003 is equipped with PC with processor Intel Dual Core 2 GHz, 2 GB of BOUQUET, and internal hard disks of 250 GB. Monitor TFT colour of 17" one of which is of 21", for people with visual deficiencies. The room is connected to a server of footage with OpenGnsys that allows to start with Windows XP and distinct distributions of Linux prepared for the needs of each subject.

The classroom D6-003bis is equipped with PC with processor Intel Core i5 3 Ghz, 8 GB of BOUQUET, and internal hard disks of 500 GB. Monitor TFT colour of 19". The room is connected to a server of footage with OpenGnsys that allows to start with Windows 7 and distinct distributions of Linux prepared for the needs of each subject.

Additional equipment:

  •  50 licences of LogicWorks 5.0 (used at the practices of the subjects IC and AC).
  • 12 routers CISCO 1841 and 8 switches CISCO Catalyst 2950. This equipment is mounted at two racks with wheels (6 routers and 4 switches at each rack), to be able to take them quickly to the laboratory when it's time to use it.
  • Network wires, 20 direct and 20 crossed.

Besides, for the subjects of PAR and PAP, there is a cluster of 4 nodes Intel DUAL 6-core XEON E5645 with the following characteristics:

  • 2 processors Intel Xeon E5645 2,40 GHz of six cores 5,86 GT/s QPI 12MB L3
  • 24 GB memmory DDR3
  • 2 hard disks of 2TB SATA
  • 2 Network interface cards Intel Pro/1000 Gigabit Ethernet

This cluster is at the CPD of the module D6.

The maintenance of all these educational laboratories is realised at the unit TIC of the UTGCNTIC https://utgcntic.upc.edu/ca/estructura/unitat-serveis-tic

Physics department Lab

The teaching laboratory of the Department of Physics and Nuclear Engineering is located in basement 1 of building A1 on the North Campus. It is shared with the ETSECCPB and the ETSETB, with a space of 86 m2 allocated to the FIB. In the FIB area there are two tables, each equipped to hold up to 16 pairs of students.

There is a technician in charge of the maintenance of the shared laboratories and he is assigned exclusively to the Physics Department. The Department also has spaces for the revision of practical computer work on the second floor of buildings B4 and B5. For carrying out practical work, the following material is available (grouped according to the subjects it is used for):

Physics (F)

  • Oscilloscopes: 5 HM-400 and 12 HM303-6 (Hameg) and 5 Promax OD-514B
  • Function generators: 22 GF-232 (Promax).
  • Power supplies: 34 model EP-613A (Blausonic) and Promax 363B
  • Leybold STE Systems for mounting electrotechnical and electronic circuits
  • 12 Multímeters del model MX556 (Metrix) and 32 of the model MD-200 (Promax)
  • 22 Raspberry Pi model 3B+ for teaching support.
  • Mitsubishi XD280U
  • 20 MP1800 laser pointers.
  • 19 supports foot plate rod, 39 doubles and 39 new clip burettes and tubes(Selecta)

In addition there is auxiliary material (cables, connections, etc.), much of which has been specifically prepared for the practical work that is carried out (bobbins, Hall probes, diodes, etc.).

 

Physics oriented Modeling and Animation Realistic (FMAR)

 

There is a robotic arm that allows practice for this subject. It is a 5-DOF manipulator, series "Lynxmotion" controlled through the serial port of a compatible PC.
Finally,  there are two computers for correcting the practices of different courses,
