MIPS Funding Supports Novel Signal Processing Technologies

MIPS Funding Supports Novel Signal Processing Technologies

The University of Maryland's Maryland Industrial Partnerships Program (MIPS), an initiative of the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), announced new grant money for 17 research projects teaming Maryland companies and university faculty to develop high technology and biotechnology commercial products.

Among the projects funded was a collaboration between College Park-based Coil LLC and ECE Chairman and Professor Patrick O'Shea to develop novel signal processing and programmable hardware technologies for audio and communications applications. The project received $135,000 in MIPS funding.

MIPS funding supports research in the laboratories of participating university faculty, who work closely with partner companies to advance their products. All funding goes to the project faculty and often supports the work of graduate students. The program has supported research projects with more than 450 different Maryland companies since 1987.
