expertise in advanced sensor technologies for Human/Machine interface
applications and UCSB's portfolio of services such as research collaboration,
technology licensing, and state-of-the-art R&D facilities represent a win-win
partnership for advanced research and development initiatives.

accelerate time-to-market and reduce R&D costs.” Mr. Bronson added, "Interlink
