Analog Devices India challenges engineering students to showcase their innovation
Bangalore, August 4, 2012: Data conversion and signal conditioning leader, Analog Devices, has challenged engineering students in India, to come up with innovative electronic solutions in Medical, Infotainment, Home Security, Surveillance, Robotics, Automotive, Green Energy, Process control, Instrumentation or Consumer applications.
First launched two years ago, Anveshan 2012, is a system level design contest for final year electrical and electronics engineering students inviting them to showcase their innovation, product design and problem solving abilities. Registered student teams will be invited to submit proposals for a prototype of an innovative electronic solution across industry verticals.
Five to ten innovative proposals will be shortlisted and teams will build prototypes using at least 3 components from Analog Devices. Senior engineers from the company will be nominated as mentors for the selected teams. Analog Devices will fund the project development and expenses and will also provide required samples and evaluation boards.
Three of the most innovative and novel projects completed will be recognized as the winners.
Anveshan is open to students from all engineering institutions in India. Registrations for the program are now open at http://bitly.com/Anveshan2012
Says Somshubro (Som) Pal Choudhury, Managing Director , Analog Devices India: “At Analog Devices, we are extremely passionate about the high level system design work carried out at our India centre.
