LEICESTER, UK De Montfort University has gained an advanced embedded development facility thanks to donations from Infineon Technologies, Hitex (UK) and Altium.
The lab will enable both undergraduate and post-graduate students within the School of Engineering & Technology to develop with the Infineon TriCore MCU DSP 32 bit microcontroller architecture using the Hitex incircuit emulator Tanto development system together with Altium's Tasking embedded software tools to implement embedded designs.
The equipment donated by the companies is worth around £20,000 and will support the teaching of microprocessor systems design, debugging and architecture and will be used for laboratory exercises, project work and research.
Philip Tasker, Vice Chancellor of De Montfort University, said: “De Montfort University is very successful at building strong partnerships with industry and we are very grateful to Infineon and Hitex not only for their generous donation, but for their continuing relationship with us.”
