Digilent Design Contest Europe 2015 Finals

The Digilent Design Contest Europe 2015 is finally over, and we can’t wait to share some of our favorite moments!

Talented students and advisers across Europe attended the finals of the Digilent Design Contest 2015 held at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca on May 16-17. Some of them traveled from Italy, France, Serbia, Hungary, and other far-flung regions in Romania driven by the strong desire to show off the projects they have been working for the last four or five months with the Digilent hardware provided.

Back to School and Looking Forward: A Letter from Clint Cole

And I can honestly say that we’re all still loving our jobs! Since joining with National Instruments almost two years ago, we’ve gained access to a larger group of world-class engineers and improved our manufacturing processes, but we’ve maintained our laser-focus on producing the best, lowest-cost teaching and learning kits for engineers.
