BANGALORE, INDIA: Texas Instruments Inc. has announced the Stellaris Design Contest India 2010.
The contest aims at challenging top embedded engineers across the country to demonstrate their skills and innovation. As a part of the contest, the contestants have to incorporate Stellaris microcontrollers (MCUs) from Texas Instruments.
The last date for registration is November 30, 2010. Each entry will be judged equally on technical merit, originality, usefulness, cost-effectiveness and design optimization by an independent panel of judges. Winners will get gift vouchers worth Rs 10,000. Selected projects also stand a chance to win the Stellaris tool - LM3S8962 EVM.
TI's broad portfolio of MCUs and software
From general purpose, ultra-low power MSP430 MCUs, to Stellaris ARM Cortex-M3-based 32-bit MCUs and high-performance, real-time control TMS320C2000 MCUs, TI offers the broadest range of MCU solutions.
Designers can accelerate time to market by tapping into TI's complete software and hardware tools, extensive third-party offerings and technical support.
The Stellaris family of MCUs from Texas Instruments offers the industry's first and broadest implementation of Cortex-M3 and the Thumb-2 instruction set. With ultra-fast responsiveness, Thumb-2 technology combines both 16-bit and 32-bit instructions to deliver the best balance of code density and performance.
Thumb-2 uses 26 percent less memory than pure 32-bit code to reduce system cost while delivering 25 percent better performance. Stellaris MCUs offer a direct path to the strongest ecosystem of development tools, software, and knowledge in the industry.
The Stellaris family of MCUs is used in many industries and products around the world, which include application areas like motion control, industrial automation, medical, transportation, appliance and security and access.
