Compact Experimenter – BiSKIT 101


Building Student Knowledge in Technology is what our equipment is all about, and so the ETT- 101 is also known as ‘BISKIT’, easy to say and easy to use.


  • BiSKIT-101

    Using the expertise from many years of manufacturing telecommunications teaching equipment, Emona is now offering the Emona Telecoms-Trainer “ETT101”. The ETT-101 is designed for introductory university courses and technical college labs where telecommunication is first introduced. The ETT-101 is a low cost unit to cater to large student numbers who need to gain a ‘hands-on’ appreciation of telecoms theory at a simple, introductory level.

    Compact and Easy For Teachers

    The Emona Telecoms-Trainer 101 (ETT101) is a single board trainer that makes teaching telecommunications much easier for professors in introductory university and technical college courses.

    Completely self contained within a single, low-profile case, the ETT-101 requires only a standard 12V DC plug-pack. Waveforms can be displayed on whatever equipment is available to the student, such as: a standard lab oscilloscope, or a PC-based scope. This dynamic visual approach helps students to see the relationship between modern telecoms methods and the math. The ‘hands-on’ approach builds student confidence and makes the experiment satisfying as the students are free to explore and learn by making mistakes. When they explore more, they learn more.

  • Experiment Capabilities – BiSKIT Lab Manuals


    The ETT-101 Laboratory Manuals (Volumes 1 and 2) provide a turn-key solution for the teacher and student alike.The manuals are specially written to guide students through hands-on experiments and help them grasp the fundamental concepts of telecommunications. Each chapter includes background information which relates the experiment content to real-world applications.

    Since telecommunications text books represent the math and concepts of telecommunications theory as ‘block diagrams’, the ‘101’ Lab Manuals make extensive use of block diagrams throughout. Associated with each block diagram are detailed, step-by-step patching diagrams. Each chapter is carefully paced and constant use is made of questions to verify the student’s understanding and provide feedback to the teacher.

    The ETT-101 User Manual contains brief descriptions of each block function on the unit, its specifications and operating instructions. Students only need refer to this manual upon beginning a course, after which time using the system becomes easy and intuitive.
