Deadline Approaches for UML - Analog Devices Design Contest

When:  Feb. 28 (deadline), April 2 (regional contest)

 

What:

College student teams from across the Northeast have the opportunity to design and produce a specialized microprocessor device using high-performance hardware and software provided by Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI).

            The University of Massachusetts Lowell is holding a contest on real-time digital signal processing (DSP) design. The set problem is to invent an assistive listening device that can be used in a wide variety of listening situations to help reduce the adverse effects of background noise and the distance between the speaker and listener.

The first 15 teams registered before the Feb. 28 deadline will receive an Analog Devices ADSP-21161 SHARC® Processor and development tools package, a value of more than $10,000, to use in implementing the design. SHARC Processors are included in consumer electronics products made by Bose, Denon and others, and in high-end audio products and automobiles.

Information and registration are online at www.uml.edu/real-timeDSPcontest.
