Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced that the Cypress University Alliance is teaming up with Nuva College of Engineering and Technology in Nagpur, India, to establish a next-generation academic design facility.

Students and faculty will have access to Cypress's full suite of PSoC (programmable SoC) and EZ-USB FX2LP USB2.0 controller software tools and development kits for teaching and research.

The facility will also provide easy access to Cypress-sponsored training, technical support and curriculum development assistance. PSoC's integrated MCU, highly configurable analog and digital peripherals, and full set of development tools make it a suitable learning tool for developing mixed-signal embedded design skills.

"With Cypress's help, our students will enter the workforce with the skills necessary to quickly be productive in the fast-paced world of engineering and computer science," said Chandra Bhople, Nuva's director of academics.

Nuva also plans to participate in the Cypress Innovator Design Challenge in 2009, a regional, multi-discipline engineering design contest open to all undergraduate and graduate engineering students currently enrolled in an accredited university. The contest's goal is to challenge students to stretch their imaginations as they develop new and novel ways to utilize Cypress technologies such as the PSoC.

"Empowering students to develop the skill sets needed to compete and win in today's marketplace is the cornerstone of the Cypress University Alliance," said the Alliance's director, Patrick Kane.
