ARM, the provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC processor technology, announced today that the Beijing Embedded System Key Lab at the Beijing University of Technology (BUT), has joined the ARM University Program and licensed the industry-leading ARM7TDMI core for system-on-chip (SoC) teaching and research.
Opened in February 2003, the Beijing Embedded System Key Lab is a large, state-of-the-art embedded system laboratory dedicated to training China's next generation of embedded system design engineers. Its primary goal is to provide education for students who are studying for their Master's degrees in engineering. It is also used for professional training and by undergraduates who are working on their graduation projects.
The lab takes a highly innovative project-based approach to education in which students gain real-world experience by working on leading-edge designs for embedded systems including hardware, ICs and software. The lab is strongly supported by the Chinese government which puts it in an excellent position to work with standards and regulatory bodies throughout the industry.
