LaunchPad Innovation Labs
At the TI University Program, we have noticed a trend where schools are starting up interdisciplinary “Innovation Centers” where students get to come from all around campus to collaborate on making an idea a reality. We saw this as a great opportunity to help out with our low-cost and easy to use tools in order to see these ideas become reality.
We’ve decided to take our Launchpad to the ultimate proving ground: University workshop areas. The Launchpad Innovation Lab (LIL) is a project to get the kits into the hands of every student at Universities around the world. It’s not just for engineers anymore!
The LIL consists of 50 Launchpad kits, 3 eZ430-Chronos Sports Watch Development tools, and 2 Evalbot kits featuring our Stellaris Cortex M3 microcontrollers. Combine this with a few breadboards, some LCD screens, a few motors, and all the free sample ICs you want from this website, and the possibilities are limitless!
