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 tools licenses
• 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 support.
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.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
