Texas Instruments Innovation Challenge: India analog design contest 2014 launched!

We are pleased to announce the launch of our TI Innovation Challenge: India for engineering students across India. The competition allows students to design products using at least three TI analog ICs, or two TI analog ICs and a TI embedded processors. The two-tiered design contest starts at the college level across India now and culminates in a national level contest in April 2014. The winners at the national level will receive a prize of Rs.5.38 lakh ($10,000) and a trophy.

 “Innovation Challenge: India will help us to draw students to the field of system design,” said C P Ravikumar, technical director - University Relations, TI India. “The college level contests will help us to identify student teams who will take part in the national level innovation challenge.” “TI is committed to nurturing engineering talent and our University program helps bring everyone together who is helping to equip students with industry-necessary skill-sets,” said Steve Lyle, director, diversity & workforce development, TI.

“As a company focused on innovation, we hope to inspire students to get creative with technology and chip design.” “In India, we have a robust University program encompassing over 800 engineering colleges to help encourage innovation in system and applications design using TI’s Analog and Embedded Processing products,” said R Madhu, director, University Programmes, TI India.
