- TI will deliver products and evaluation modules worth US $25,000
- NIT Trichy (NIIT) will use the products in curriculum teaching and research in the area of Analog IC applications, power management and embedded systems
- NITT will provide a space and other infrastructure to set up TI Research Lab
The National Institute of Technology, Tiruchi, (NIT-T), on Monday, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Texas Instruments (TI), which is engaged in design and development of semiconductors and software, to promote interaction between the two organisations and setting up of a TI Research Lab at NIT-T campus.
The MoU was signed in the presence of Mini Shaji Thomas, Director, NIT-T, and Sanjay Srivastav, Director, Texas Instruments India University Programme.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Thomas said the MoU would enable collaboration with TI in the pioneering semiconductor engineering technology for learning and mobility.
Thomas further informed that the setting up of the TI Research Lab is a priority. NIIT sees the program as an opportunity to develop a talent pool among the students of the institution and give them an edge over others in terms of acquisition of advanced knowledge and be industry-ready. NITT will provide a space and other infrastructure to set up TI Research Lab,” Thomas added.
Plan of action
The MoU envisages joint research and development projects over a period of three years for the development of new technologies in various engineering domains.
As a part of the MoU, TI will deliver products and evaluation modules worth US $ 25,000 and they will be used by NITT in curriculum teaching and research in the area of Analog IC applications, power management and embedded systems.
