Cypress Semiconductor Corp. and Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology (NMIT) of Bangalore recently have agreed to build a joint programmable system-on-chip (PSoC) laboratory in the department of Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) of�NMIT.

As part of the agreement, Cypress will provide hands-on training to the faculty and students of NMIT, Bangalore, in addition to free hardware kits and software tools. NMIT, Bangalore will provide the facilities for the laboratory.

This laboratory will expose the students to the PSoC platform, a flexible family of devices with programmable analogue and digital blocks integrated with a microcontroller. With its unique architecture, PSoC provides an unrivaled learning platform for embedded design students. The lab will also be used for training the local engineering community.

A two semester course on PSoC is also being planned at NMIT. The course material will be developed by the faculty of NMIT in collaboration with Cypress. The course will include both theory and practical labs. The emphasis will be on allowing the students to use PSoC in innovative applications and in their academic projects.

"This new laboratory adds a new facet to our curriculum here at NMIT, Bangalore" said Dr. Nagaraj. "The PSoC platform provides a rich environment for our students to learn practical, real-world engineering skills which will help them immediately in their chosen careers. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Cypress."
