ARM produces Lab-in-Box
ARM has produced a ‘Lab-in-a-Box’ for universities and colleges to introduce ARM technology, writes David Manners.
Inside the box are: ten ARM-based development boards; a hundred ARM Keil MDK-ARM Pro 1-year, renewable software tools licenses, and a complete suite of teaching materials from ARM, including lecture note slides, demonstration codes, lab manuals and projects with solutions in source.
“We are enabling educators and their students to discover the possibilities of ARM technology,” says ARM’s Khaled Benkrid.
“We were delighted to be one of the first institutions to receive the Lab-in-a-Box,” says Cambridge University’s Dr. Boris Adryan, “the materials it contains are helping us to connect our teaching of systems biology with the world’s latest embedded computing and sensing technology.”
The ARM University Program’s partners include Cypress, Freescale, Nuvoton, NXP, ST and Silicon Labs/Energy Micro.
The Program provides a variety of teaching materials, hardware platforms, software development tools, IP, and other resources for educators, students, and researchers. This brings benefits to university courses and labs, student projects, and academic research in embedded systems, microprocessors/controllers, mechatronics, SoC design and computer architecture.
The ARM University Program provides its teaching materials and software tools, including ARM Keil MDK-ARMPro Software Tool, free of charge to qualifying institutions to support teaching, laboratory work and educational research projects.
Requests for these materials should be made through the ARM University Program website: www.arm.com/university.
