Analog Devices Active Learning Modules Open Opportunities to Philippine Universities

 We have always believed that creating future innovators is the key to staying ahead of what is possible.  ADI’s University Program is designed to bring basic research into applied technologies and attract new talents. It also helps educate new generations of scientists and engineers by developing and promoting learning tools highlighting ADI’s product strengths.

But a big challenge to our local universities is having a cost-effective alternative and hands-on approach to traditional laboratory equipment.  

Analog Devices Active Learning Modules (ADALM) is ADI’s series of products designed to complement the “in-classroom” learning.  ADALM allows engineering students and professionals alike, to get hands-on experience in basic electronics, instrumentations, and advance communications systems.

The Systems Development Group (SDG) with the help of ADGT’s academe linkage Chair Jay Sanchez, have been working with the local universities through partnerships, workshops, and donations, to attract the best pool of talents into engineering programs.

ADALM-Pluto is a reconfigurable, future-proof, and software-defined radio (SDR) platform that helps students to bridge the concepts that they learned in class into real-word, practical applications.



 This year ADI Philippines donated ADALM-Pluto samples to partner universities aiming to strengthen the link between the industry and the academe. It was followed by a series of workshops attended by engineering students and faculties. The workshops started on the first quarter of 2019, introducing the fundamentals of SDR with the emphasis on its potentials in the study of communications and RF technology. The attendees had the opportunity to perform several activities using the module.   










Integrating ADALM-Pluto into universities’ curriculum helps broadens their course materials and topics on SDR.  This opens up opportunities for students to expand and improve their knowledge in advance communications systems and RF technology. We invest time and resources in our future engineers now to equip them with the skills and knowledge that they will need to be ahead of what’s possible.
