ARM® announces that its worldwide University Program has
started shipping its flagship ‘Lab-in-a-Box’ (LiB) with its partners to
higher educational institutions around the globe. The LiB contains
ARM-based technology and high quality, rigorous training materials that
support electronics and computer engineering courses. It provides a
migration package for academics wanting to upgrade their existing
curricula to state-of-the-art ARM-based technologies and is a key part
of the ARM University Program in its mission to make low power, high
performance ARM-based products accessible to students and to spark the
next generation of electronics innovation.
The Lab-in-a-Box (LiB) package includes hardware boards from ARM
partners, software licenses from ARM, and complete teaching materials
ready to be immediately deployed in classes. Current partners supplying
hardware boards include Freescale and NXP. The full contents of the box
are as follows:
• 10 x ARM-based development boards
• 100 x ARM Keil® MDK-ARM Pro 1-year, renewable software
• A complete suite of teaching materials from ARM, including lecture
note slides, demonstration codes, lab manuals and projects with
solutions in source.
‘We are pleased to see the very first LiBs start shipping to our partner
institutions,” said Khaled Benkrid, manager, Worldwide University
Program, ARM. “This is an important moment for the ARM University
Program and for our partners, who are giving us very strong support.
Together, we are enabling educators and their students to discover the
possibilities of ARM technology. We are committed to equipping
tomorrow’s engineers with the skills they need to drive the exciting and
intelligent products that are transforming how people work and play.”
“We were delighted to be one of the first institutions to receive the
ARM University Program’s Lab-in-a-Box on Embedded Systems,” said Dr.
Boris Adryan, University of Cambridge, UK. “It has immediately proven
itself to me as an excellent resource for our research and teaching
activities. The ARM-based materials it contains are helping us to
connect our teaching of systems biology with the world’s latest embedded
computing and sensing technology.”
The ARM University Program enables educational use of ARM technology.
Current Program partners include Cypress, Freescale, Nuvoton, NXP, ST
and Silicon Labs/Energy Micro. The Program provides a variety of
teaching materials, hardware platforms, software development tools, IP,
and other resources for educators, students, and researchers. This
brings benefits to university courses and labs, student projects, and
academic research in embedded systems, microprocessors/controllers,
mechatronics, SoC design and computer architecture. Other Program
initiatives include “Train-the-Trainer” workshops, online
teaching/training videos, design contest sponsorships and research
The ARM University Program provides its teaching materials and software
tools, including ARM Keil MDK-ARMPro Software Tool, free of charge to
qualifying institutions to support teaching, laboratory work and
educational research projects. Faculty/Professor requests for these
materials should be made through the ARM University Program website: www.arm.com/university
where educators, researchers and students can register to join the
program and avail of its wealth of products and services.

“Freescale is delighted to be building on our longstanding relationship
with ARM by providing access to our solutions to universities and
electronic engineering students around the world,” said Andy
Mastronardi, director, University Programs, Freescale. “The Lab-in-a-Box
is just one way Freescale and ARM collaboratively reach out to our
engineers of the future and help us create a new wave of innovative
embedded technologies that will drive our increasingly connected world.”
“NXP is pleased to partner with the ARM University Program and to
support its exciting Lab in a Box,” said John Rayfield , senior
director, MCU Ecosystem, NXP. “This is a great initiative that will
benefit university departments and students on a global scale. Demand
continues to grow for engineers with the skills to embed innovative and
intelligent ARM–based technology into the environments around them. NXP
is committed to creating solutions that enable secure connections for
this smarter world.”
