Texas Instruments launches the European Analog Design Contest for 2013

January 15, 2013 // By Paul Buckley
The Texas Instruments European Analog Design Contest for 2013, co-sponsored by Mouser Electronics, is an initiative being launched to encourage system-level design within universities.

The contest offers an opportunity for undergraduate and master's students to show creativity and engineering skills while working on a design project using TI's broad range high-performance analog and embedded processing ICs. The TI European Analog Design Contest allows students to gain experience and recognition in the analog field, as well as compete against other students for cash prizes.

The Analog Design Contest is hosted by TI's European University Program, founded in 1994. The program seeks to encourage young talent to innovate in the areas of system design leveraging analog and embedded processing building blocks. TI's European University Program supports more than 1,000 universities in Europe that offer classes in the fields of electronics and electrical engineering or computer science.

At Electronica 2012 in Munich, Germany saw a team of three students from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) awarded first place and $10,000 for their innovative key vital signs remote monitoring project.

The first round of the contest will see 20 winning teams each receive $1,000. The 20 teams will progress to the next round. In the second round there will be four teams selected and awarded as follows: First place: $10,00; Second place: $5,000; Third place: $2,500; Fourth place: $2,500.

Registration deadline for the contest is 23:59 (GMT) on 28th February 2013
