Electronics Laboratory

Design, construction, and repair services for electronic equipment

The staff of the Electronics Laboratory designs and constructs electronic equipment to specification. This equipment is designed to meet the unique specifications of the requestor. We build unique equipment that is generally not available on the commercial market at very competitive rates. The equipment can range from small low power to large high power devices. We build devices that operate from DC to the mega Hertz frequency regime and at millivolt to kilovolt levels.

Our construction services can also include mechanical and machining aspects of the device in most cases. For very demanding or large scale mechanical projects, we have access to the excellent facilities of the Central Machine Shop at the University, and can coordinate construction with them.


  • Analog and digital circuit design and simulation
  • Printed circuit layout and fabrication
  • Electrical testing and design verification
  • Microprocessor code development
  • CPLD and FPGA design
  • Mechanical design and fabrication

We also repair and maintain electronic and electrical equipment at much lower cost than that provided by outside suppliers.

If you need to construct unique equipment or repair existing equipment, contact us at (773) 702-7220 to discuss your needs. We are located in the sub-basement of the Gordon Center for Integrative Sciences in room ESB03. Feel free to call or come in to discuss your needs or obtain an estimate for a project.
