Cypress Semiconductor Corp. and Anna University Chennai, India announced an agreement to set up a joint programmable SoC (PSoC) laboratory in the Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering, College of Engineering Guindy Campus.

The lab will be a platform for providing technical training, development of intellectual property and embedded systems in the vibrant and growing embedded system design community at Anna University.

As part of the agreement, Cypress will provide hands-on training to the faculty and students of Anna University, in addition to free hardware kits and software tools valued at over $200,000. Anna University will provide the facilities for the laboratory.

"PSoC is everywherein mobile phones, laptops, MP3 players, and even products such as toothbrushes and intelligent shoes are enabled by PSoC. We believe that this laboratory will inspire and fuel students' imaginations to come up with new applications for PSoC in embedded systems," said Babak Hedayati, Cypress's senior VP of worldwide marketing and corporate business development.

"We have developed a strong connection with Cypress, including the training of 25 faculty members, an industry project in medical electronics and the recruitment of talented graduates," stated Mannar Jawahar, vice chancellor of Anna University. "The agreement strengthens our partnership; our students and faculty derive rich benefits from designing on the flexible PSoC platform, and Cypress benefits from increased PSoC knowledge within the many talented designers in our student body."

"Cypress is committed to develop the next generation of designers in India," said Patrick Kane, director of university relations at Cypress. "This agreement is one example of our commitment to premier engineering institutions in India. We also recently launched a nationwide design contest for undergraduate and graduate-level engineering students in India. Efforts such as these are important steps in developing expertise and nurturing the rich engineering talent in India."
