Efficient laboratory teaching for student groups

The R&S®CDS campus dashboard software simplifies teaching of student groups in laboratories with multiple workbenches. It also provides access to many instrument functions and settings as well as firmware updates and screenshots.

The campus dashboard software remotely controls up to 300 individual instruments (oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers and power supplies). It enables the teacher to set identical conditions to all student benches, to save settings from one instrument and distribute these settings to all students, or to retrieve results of all students simultaneously. These operations can be done with only very few clicks.

Simple & time-efficient

The R&S®CDS campus dashboard software enables simple and time-efficient teaching in multi-user student laboratories.

Individual laboratory layout

Grouping of several devices into multiple virtual benches gives clear overview of the laboratory in the software interface, including the status of every individual device. An automated search detects all supported devices in the local network. Alternatively, an *.xml list of individual devices can be loaded into the software. Custom bench layouts match the software with the actual lab arrangement.

Continuous teaching with Snapshots

Only one click saves the current settings of all configured instruments. This “snapshot” of the entire classroom can be re-loaded at any later time to restore the settings as long as the same instruments are connected. This function guarantees a continuous flow if a teaching lesson has to be split into several sessions
