Student Design Competition Sponsors

ARM University Worldwide Education Program logo

Thank you to our cash prizes sponsor, ARM University Worldwide Education Program. ARM is the world’s leading semiconductor IP company. ARM's microprocessor technology is at the heart of many of the digital electronics devices sold each year, from smartphones and tablets to sensors, wearables and servers. The ARM University Program enables educational use of ARM technology, benefiting university courses and labs, student projects, and academic research by supporting academics (educators) with its flagship Lab-in-a-Box donation containing courseware, including lecture slides with notes, exercises with solutions, lab experiments with solutions, along with ARM based hardware and the ARM Keil MDK Pro Software development tools.

For RESNA 2016 Student Design Competition entrants, ARM is providing a variety of informational links and help to student designers who would like to use ARM technology in their designs. See the links below. In addition, ARM will provide microcontroller development boards to students who wish to use them in their projects. Click here for links to the board kits.
