Emona Trainer Lab Manual


Although the math that you’ll need for this manual is relatively light, there is some. Helpfully, the Emona Telecoms-Trainer 101 can model communications equations to bring them to life. The experiment This experiment will introduce you to modelling equations by using the Emona Telecoms-Trainer 101 to implement two relatively simple equations. The ETT-101 Laboratory Manuals (Vol.1, Vol.2, Vol.3, Vol.4 and Electronic Circuit Projects Manual) provide a turn-key solution for the teacher and student alike. These lab manuals are specially written to guide students through hands-on experiments and help them grasp the fundamental concepts of telecommunications.

'At the Institute of Telecommunications, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, Slovakia TIMS has been used since 2004. Mainly to support lectures and seminars of courses on: digital, mobile and optical communications. Personally I perceive the greatest added value of TIMS in the fact that it is a modelling system (not a simulator)…'

'Computer simulations are invaluable in engineering design. But they cannot perfectly model the behavior of actual systems. TIMS provides a 'real world' telecommunications systems.'


Dr. T. Brewer[School of Electrical & Computer Engineering]

Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA

'I use a modular laboratory teaching system TIMS for subjects like Signals & systems and Radio comunication for more than 10 years. Able family tree maker 2019. I like this system because I can demonstrate to students principles of modulators, demodulators or the all transmission model. I often use it with a signal generator and radio receiver. I would recommend TIMS for you.'

pplk. Ing. Vaclav Platenka, Ph.D.[Head of the Communication Group, Department of Communication and Information Systems]

Faculty of Military Technology, University of Defence, Brno, Czech Republic

'I am using the TIMS modules for several years. It is a practical way to teach and learn analog and digital telecommunications, from the simplest to the most complex topics. The ease to build different telecommunications schemes and models similar to the real world, and its interactivity, make TIMS extremely valuable academically. Students quickly learn and experience the concepts involved in…'

Mg. Edgard Oporto[School of Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering]


'We have been using TIMS for more than 10 years in our Wireless Engineering curriculum. The equipment and support have been superb – better than any other lab equipment or supplier that I have had experience with in 30 years of teaching lab-based courses. We have always had immediate, competent response to questions. The stations, modules, and cables are remarkably rugged,…'

'With TIMS you are able to convey reality: I have seen conceptual difficulties virtually vaporize within seconds of a demonstration'

Dr R Radzyner - Senior Lecturer[Department of Communications]

University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia

'instructors can immediately demonstrate concepts in response to student questions. There is an immediate 'learning by doing’.. We have found the TIMS trainers to be very effective teaching tools with great versatility, particularly the fact that in-house modules can easily be developed and added.'

Prof K W Yates[Professor of Electrical Engineering]

University of Technology, Sydney, Australia

TIMS brings text books to life with real signals in real time. TIMS takes the pain away from Professors in teaching complex theories & math.
Students enjoy learning and Professors experience a sense of accomplishment.

Learn Telecommunication like never before


  • There was an increasing anxiety among students on
    how would the theory be applied in real world?
  • After their Telecoms Lab equipped with TIMS, learning has become so much fun.
    Advanced and complicated theories in Signals & Systems are
    not a hassle anymore.
  • Thanks to TIMS Block Diagram approach!

Why TIMS ?

How can students experiment with and experience the multitude of telecommunications principles and modulation/coding schemes without the need for an entire test bench of instruments and time-consuming preparation?

This major challenge is answered by the TIMS approach to building experiments at a block diagram level. To see TIMS Teaching capabilities and to select experiments of desired topics in your curriculum, please visit our Experiments list Page.

What is TIMS ?

TIMS (Telecommunication Instructional Modelling System), is a flexible and versatile communications trainer that incorporates all of the instruments needed to quickly and easily carry out every communications laboratory experiment required in a range of courses, from technical college to university level.

Install and put in mods folder (you can also install Optifine, but we preffer to have it in mods folder)4. Minecraft shaders for mac 1.12.

What is included?

The TIMS-301 BASIC SYSTEM comprises the core hardware components and documentation for a TIMS laboratory training system.
The first of the two hardware components is the TIMS-301 SYSTEM UNIT with its FIXED modules (lower rack) and 12-slot upper rack for plug-in modules
The second hardware component is the PLUG-IN MODULES which comprises of a large range of single function building blocks. The professor choses the modules needed to suit each specific experiment setup and these are then reused in other experiment setups.

What is special about TIMS-301?

  • ADVANCED MODULE set adds over 50 additional functions for implementing the vast range of experiment capabilities of TIMS.
  • DSP-based modules are available to compare the performance of traditional electronic circuits with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques within the TIMS environment, as well as for implementing more complex schemes.
  • In-house modules can be designed to fit into the TIMS system due to the open architecture of TIMS.
  • The TIMS-301C includes a built-in virtual instrument for connecting to a PC to give oscilloscope functions and spectrum analysis (FFT).
  • Unique to TIMS, for networking a TIMS laboratory, is ‘TIMS Trunks’. The instructor can send up to 3 telecommunications signals from the master TIMS System, to each student’s TIMS system.
  • TIMS Trunks is ideal for:
    • – Laboratory demonstrations
    • – For making complex demodulation/decoding experiments more manageable, &
    • – Excellent for practical examinations
  • TIMS is fully self-contained. The only additional equipment required is an oscilloscope.
  • Quick and easy to use. The front panel of each module is functionally laid out, with inputs on the left and outputs on the right hand side of the panel. All inputs and outputs are colour coded signifying the signal type: yellow for analogue signals and red for digital signals. High quality 4mm sockets are used throughout.

What are the Modules?

The BASIC MODULE SET which includes 13 BASIC plug-in modules. Three sets of manuals are included: the TIMS-301 USER MANUAL, the TIMS LABSHEET EXPERIMENTS set and the five volumes TIMS STUDENT TEXT.
