Texas Instruments Cuts Ribbon On $2.2 Million Engineering Lab At University Of California, Berkeley





DALLAS and BERKELEY, Calif., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) and the University of California, Berkeley today opened the doors to a state-of-the-art electronics teaching lab. A $2.2 million gift from TI helped transform the existing lab into the Electronics Design Laboratory, designed to encourage ingenuity among undergraduate engineering students.

"The new lab is an engaging learning environment for hands-on engineering, which is exactly what we believe will cultivate the engineers of tomorrow," says Brian Crutcher, senior vice president and general manager of TI's Analog business. "Aspiring engineers are tasked with staying ahead of the innovation curve, and what could be better than to provide them with cutting-edge workspaces that enable real-life learning early on?"

The newly renovated Electronics Design Lab is housed in Cory Hall, home of the Electrical Engineering Division of UC Berkeley's Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences (EECS), one of seven departments in the College of Engineering. The lab will provide more than 1,000 students each year with hands-on experience through the application of principles learned in Introduction to Microelectronic Circuits and other gateway electrical engineering courses. The lab includes 26 workstations equipped with prototyping platforms from National Instruments, built with a variety of TI analog and embedded processing products, bench-top measurement equipment donated by Agilent Technologies, as well as ICs from Texas Instruments. This provides a real-world learning environment that gives students a deeper understanding of theoretical engineering concepts and an appreciation of their practical application.

The nearby "maker" lounge, also renovated by TI, is a collaborative playground for budding engineers. Managed by student organizations and equipped with two complete workstations, a development station and related tools, the space is designed to inspire creativity and allow students to work together in solving complex problems.
