The European University Program was established in 1994, with the objective of facilitating the inclusion of world-class, real-time, DSP and Analog into electrical and electronic engineering research and course curricula. The program now supports over 1000 Universities that offer Electronic and Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering courses.

Academic Institutions throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa have access to TI's DSP Tools at special prices, along with expert technical assistance. Universities are also welcome to use extracts from TI Technical literature published on the web, under
certain conditions.

 

Our goal is simple; to enable teaching and research to use TI technologies across the entire signal chain.


TI supports academic institutions throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Teaching materials

TI offers a number of resources to support DSP teaching  activities in academic institutions. These include:
  • From MATLAB and SIMULINK to Real-time Using TI DSP Teaching ROM
    Covers applications in Audio, Video, Imaging, Communications and Control
    Literature # SSQC016

    This teaching ROM focuses on work-flow and application-based teaching rather than individual DSP algorithms implementation. The materials complement the content found on other Texas Instruments Teaching ROMs. The idea is that you start from algorithm development and show how easily an idea is prototyped step-by-step, and then deployed on the hardware. The CD-ROM contains a suite of example applications in various fields such as Audio, Video, Imaging, Communications and Control. The basic examples enable students to experiment with real-time DSP applications, showing how to create prototypes using the Mathworks and Texas Instruments development tools (hardware and software). Advanced level examples are also included, where the basic tools are integrated with external dedicated hardware and/or software modules.

    Platforms used: TMS320F2808 eZdsp Starter Kit (DSK), TMS320F2812 eZdsp Start Kit (DSK), TMS320C6713 DSP Starter Kit (DSK), TMS320C6416 DSP Starter Kit (DSK), DM6437 Digital Video Development Platform (DVDP).

  • MSP430 Teaching ROM   - Download the highlights to get you started here!
    Literature # SSQC017

    This CD-ROM has been created to provide the vital core materials to enable educators and academics to teach microcontrollers (MCUs), using devices from the Texas Instruments MSP430 family. The materials include slides, labs, tests, programs and application examples, written in an academic style that is both interesting and technically detailed.

    In addition, the tutorials can be used as student guides to a series of modules and laboratory exercises. Each module is dedicated to a specific aspect of the device, including detailed descriptions of how to use a range of peripherals.

    A step-by-step project guide to using different software development tools, with instructions on how to use the available hardware starter kits to perform the laboratory exercises, is also included.

    Hardware platforms supported:

    MSP430FG4618 (MSP430FG4618/F2013 Experimenter’s board),

    MSP430F2013 and the MSP430F2274 (eZ430-F2013 and eZ430-RF2500 MSP430 USB Stick Development Tool).

    Software supported: Code Composer Essentials v3.0 and IAR KIckstart ®

  • C2000™ Teaching CDROM. Second Edition now covers TMS320F2812, TMS320LF2407 and TMS320F243. Literature code SSQC011
    This CD-ROM is designed to support teachers and professors teaching DSP-based control using the TI TMS320C2000 DSP platform.  Written and designed by Frank Bormann of University of Applied Sciences Zwickau, Germany, this CD-ROM provides a series of 16 modules with teaching material for the new generation Texas Instruments Digital Signal Controller TMS320F2812.  The contents include presentation slides, a textbook with 488 pages, along with procedures and solutions for laboratory exercises, all presented in source-code form to allow flexibility of use. The laboratory exercises are based on the TMS320F2812 eZdsp and the C programming language.
    The Author Frank Bormann is a University Lecturer in Automotive Electronics, Real-Time- Control and Digital Signal Processing. His department at the Zwickau University is an internationally recognized centre for automotive data bus systems and electromagnetic compatibility. He became a certified instructor for Texas Instruments in 1998, and lectures the 4-day design workshops for the TMSC2000-family in Europe. In April 2006 he was given TI's DSP Educators Award in recognition of his major contribution to technical education worldwide. In addition to the new material, the First Edition of this Teaching ROM written by Richard Sikora, is included. This material is dedicated to the 16-Bit generation of the C2000-family and provides exercises that are based on the TMDS320F243 Starter Kit and the TMS320LF2407 DSK.
    The "Zwickau Adaptor board" used in many of the experiments can be obtained from Systec.
