CoreChart Enabling Innovation Skills Development By eLabtronics
Electronics is a key contributor to the Australian Economy Electronics is a significant enabler that underpins growth and innovation in virtually all industries. For example it is estimated that 90% of all future innovation in the automobile industry will be driven by electronics, with electronics representing up to 40% of a vehicle’s production cost by According to the Defence Department, the value of electronics in defence related activities is even higher, with electronics representing up to 80% of the production cost of a modern warship and a submarine. Quote from the Australian Electrical Electronics Manufacturing Association AEEMA
In November 2001, the technical experts of giant Microchip Technology Inc flew from Arizona, USA to meet with a small company in the city of Adelaide...
They came to see CoreChart: A New Microchip Programming Tool Simplifies programming of microchips -1000s of innovative new electronics / ICT applications! The CoreChart Revolution
Microcontrollers or microchips are: Single-chip computers Driving the next phase of ICT growth -5-cent size web servers!
CoreChart is paving the new way
CoreChart reduces time to market
CoreChart makes microchip programming: Simpler Faster Less Prone to Error -Without compromising performance! Originality and Ingenuity
CoreChart is easy to use: It is being embedded in School curriculum Students are building real life industrial controllers - examples: Oyster counters, alarm controllers -DOS to Windows! User friendliness
Automotive Telecommunications Defence Bio-technology Smart Toys -The potential is unlimited! A multitude of applications
CoreChart Enables Innovation Skills Development
CoreChart Robotic Mentoring Program forges key partnership
High level government support
CoreChart RPM Reviving Science and Mathematics interest
CoreChart RPM program produces good results High School students feedback: - I found the program interesting and overall satisfaction : 86% - I enjoyed learning like this : 89% - the University students presented the program effectively : 96% Project Manager Associate Professor Brenton Dansie: I think the really encouraging sign is that 50% of students agreed that the program has stimulated their interest in a career in electronics engineering! I think that this is a great result.
Grant to embed CoreChart in Science and ICT curriculum CoreChart curriculum encourages hands-on applications CoreChart curriculum encourages hands-on applications CoreChart gives students an early advantage to acquire a niche skill CoreChart gives students an early advantage to acquire a niche skill
Putting theory into practice Clipsal C-BUS RPM eRacer Robot Industry Project
Striving for Excellence The South Australian Solar Car Consortium entry “Kelly” won first place in the 2003 World Solar Challenge in the Production Class “Kelly” is fitted with 29 eLabtronics solar maximisers programmed in CoreChart
A Holistic Approach
A Total Commitment by Stakeholders
Fully Exploit and Expand the CoreChart Robotic Peer Mentoring program: To reverse the catastrophic decline of Science and Mathematics in Australian Schools To create large scale Intellectual Properties IP to counter the low cost production centres of India and China Program is endorsed by EIA and AEEMA Electronics Action Agenda for national roll out The Challenge
CoreChart Creates Export Opportunities
Our passion is to develop a world class Innovation Skill base for Australia
