Laboratory experiments are always vital for a university student in electronic engineer to improve her/his practical skill. However, because of unit cost and availability, student may not get opportunity to use the equipments, particularly the latest industrial equipments, in their experiments. For this reason many graduates require time to adapt to real industrial technology when they leave university. This paper presents a virtual instrument based distance laboratory system that offers students the opportunity to complete their experiments, by using an Internet linked personal computer at university, home, or anywhere. Based upon the system, a set of laboratory equipment can be used for their experiments by many students at the same time. Both Local Area Network (LAN) and Virtual Network Computing (VNC) technologies are employed to develop this low-cost but efficient system.
