Texas A&M 9/15:
Lots of travel this week. It begins in College Station Texas home of the Aggies! They are the first university to hear about PSoC3/5 the day after it has been announced! TAMU engineering have a multitude of projects in the wings that can take advantage of the “no excuses analog” and digital functionality of the new generation of PSoC that includes 8051 and ARM Cortex M3 technology.
Spent time at the University of Houston college of technology this week where I was happy to instruct 34 professors, TAs and students in the fundamentals of PSoC and CyFi. UH will be integrated PSoC and CyFi technology into their curriculum over the next several semesters. The profs. were especially interested in the 8051 based PSoC 3 and will be replacing the current 8051 classes with PSoC3 technology.

I was at Drexel on Friday. With Help from John Wisniewski (Cypress FAE) and Jude Brown (Cypress Sales) I was able to show the benefits of PSoC and CyFi to professors from Drexel’s ECE, Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering colleges. Prof. Prawat Nagvajara (the one and only member of Thailand's Olympic cross coutnry ski team!) came up with a unique idea for the PSoC3 First Touch Kit (FTK). I won’t say more except it involves a rocket, the accelerometer on the board and terminal velocity. Hopefully Prawat will send us some pictures of PSoC in flight!
