Sponsored Spotlight - OpNeAR
Our sponsorship program recently added the OpNeAR group from The Erik Jonsson School of Engineering & Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas (that's a mouthful of a name). If you want it to be even longer, go ahead and spell out The Open Networking Advanced Research Lab at The... Just go to their web site.
These guys are focused on advancing wireless and optical networking technology and the group we are sponsoring just won a design contest put on by Texas Instruments. Take a look at this page for specific details on the project.
I love the tag line for the engineering school: "FEARLESS engineering" That phrase is their trademark so don't go trying to use it yourself. They beat you to it. It makes a simple, yet dramatic and powerful statement. You can't do much better than that.
Speaking of doing better... The guys won the design contest and the system they built works so well that additional students are coming in just to use it. Click on the thumbnail for a larger view. If you look closely at the board, you'll note that our board-fab partner Sunstone (AKA PCBexpress) also helped on this project.
Congratulations OpNeAR! and keep up the good work.
