ARM Launches University Contest For New System Designs
CAMBRIDGE, UK - Mar. 07, 2001 - ARM [(LSE:ARM); (Nasdaq:ARMHY)], the industry's leading provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC microprocessor solutions, today launched the ARM Design Contest for Education.
"The industry-leading ARM® architecture is the most useful 32-bit architecture to learn about today," said Matt Lee, University Program manager, ARM. "This contest is a good way for students to demonstrate their knowledge, teamwork and innovation with an ARM core-based design. It is an excellent way for us to generate interest in ARM and to see some new ideas."
The contest begins on March 7, 2001 and ends June 30, 2001. Participation is open to any student, or group of students, from Universities and senior/high schools. The subject of the design is open but the system must include or simulate at least one ARM processor. Design examples could include hardware & software: µHAL embedded RT Linux applications, cryptography, low-power applications, IPs, Evaluator[tm] 7T board extensions, simulation, language interpreters and compilers. ARM is not only interested in new low-cost, low-power solutions; entrants will also be judged upon the innovation of their designs.
The first prize winner(s) will be invited to present their work at the ARM Headquarters in Cambridge, UK and will receive state-of-the-art ARM development tools and an ARM Powered® device. The next two winners will get ARM development tools and an ARM Powered device.
