Texas Instruments equipment benefits ECS students

Published: 11 March 2008

The School's undergraduate teaching of Digital Signal Processing has benefited from a valuable gift made by Texas Instruments.

The gift to the School of Electronics and Computer Science from Texas Instruments will support and enhance the teaching of Digital Signal Processing fundamentals and filtering in undergraduate Electronics and Computer Science degrees.

Texas Instruments contributed 20 sets of their TMS320C6713 equipment to ECS along with unlimited software support. Dr Matthew Swabey, who teaches the courses in which the equipment will be used, said:

"Programming and experimenting with these engineering development kits will give our students a real advantage in understanding digital signal processing fundamentals along with experience of a cutting-edge real-world digital signal processor architecture."

Robert Owen, Texas Instrument's University Program Manager, visited ECS to see students using the equipment in the Electronics Lab; also in the photograph is Dr Matthew Swabey.
