TI Gives $2.2M To UC Berkeley

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Texas Instruments (TI) is giving a $2.2 million gift to support engineering education at the University of California, Berkeley. The university will use the gift to better its traditional introductory Electronic Design Laboratory.

The university expects to open the renovated space in Spring 2013. The renovated lab will also connect to the school’s Mixed Signals Laboratory, originally funded by a gift from National Semiconductor, one of Silicon Valley’s first semiconductor companies, which was acquired by TI in 2011.

More than 1,000 students a year gain their first hands-on electronics experience in the university’s Electronic Design Lab, which supports Introduction to Microelectronic Circuits and other gateway electrical engineering courses at UC Berkeley.

TI is also donating development kits that incorporate a range of devices from its extensive semiconductor portfolio, along with supporting software, to enhance the hands-on learning experience in the classroom.
