Energy Micro supports ARM’s university programme

29 May 2013 News

Energy Micro has been selected by ARM to help extend its university programme through a focus on the ARM Cortex-M series processors.

ARM has chosen Energy Micro to be one of its first partners in this new initiative in recognition of the company’s commitment to the ARM Cortex architecture and the training, tools and support it already offers to its customers.

The ARM University Programme encourages the use of ARM processors in electronic engineering and related university courses where students can benefit from ARM’s IP and development systems.

The programme provides its training material and software tools, including the Keil MDK-ARM software tools, free of charge to qualifying institutions to support teaching, laboratory work and educational research projects. Faculty requests for these materials should be addressed to university@arm.com.

“The ARM University Programme is pleased to be collaborating with Energy Micro to help aspiring engineers become familiar with the ARM architecture,” said Khaled Benkrid, manager, Worldwide University Programme, ARM. “The programme makes the latest ARM Cortex processor technology available to partner institutions and shares a variety of excellent teaching materials and development tools. We want students to design the next generation of innovative low-power devices for our increasingly connected world.”

Alf-Egil Bogen, chief marketing officer at Energy Micro commented, “Our investment in training and teaching materials is one of the key reasons ARM has chosen to work with Energy Micro. Our latest initiative, ‘Lizard Labs’, is an online training resource that provides a series of short on-demand video modules to make it even easier for users to get to grips with our products and development tools. This complements the existing University Programme and the How-to Guides, FAQs and User Forum that are part of our ‘Lizard Lounge’ technical support facility.”

In developing its EFM32 series microcontrollers, based around ARM Cortex-M processor cores and with a particular emphasis on low-energy solutions, Energy Micro has long realised the value of supporting these products with competent development tools and providing training for users. Its innovative ‘Simplicity Studio’ ensures designers always have access to the latest documentation, firmware and software to use in conjunction with its comprehensive range of hardware evaluation platforms and development kits, while its free energyAware tools address the challenges of modelling ultra-low-power applications.

This partnership with Energy Micro will add to the resources available and includes the EFM32 Gecko design tools and development kits. Complete bundles, containing 10 EFM32 Starter Kits, are being offered to academic institutions at a special price.
