Two UKSW Lecturers’ Works Enter 110 Indonesia Best Innovations

Innovations that were produced by two Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana (UKSW) lecturers succeeded to be chosen as “110 Indonesia Innovations – 2018” by the Indonesia Business Innovation Center (BIC). BIC, as a non-profit institution in innovation and scholarly knowledge, chose the best 110 innovative works from 397 proposals.

The two lecturers are Dra. Lusiawati Dewi, M.Sc., and Deddy Susilo, M.Eng. The awards that were earned by both of them were the innovations they made, so that they succeeded to pass in the ‘food and others’ category.

Lusiawati Dewi, who is the UKSW Biology Faculty Dean, succeeded to create an innovation with a high protein ingredient in tempe. Different with the tempe that is mostly being sold in the market these days, the tempe made by Lusiawati Dewi has a complete protein content with vegetable and meat because it is mixed with a fish essence.

“I gave this product the name tempe ikan (fish tempe) or TeKan, because it is made from a soybean and fish powder base. This fish tempe also has a patent, so that it can be patented,” stated this Head of the UKSW Tempe Study Center.

Lusiawati Dewi mentioned that the initial idea of this fish tempe production process originated because of complaints from society about the low interest to eat fish, especially among children. Based on this idea, then she came up with an innovation to make fish tempe that is also rich in amino acids.

Cost Control

As for Deddy Susilo, M.Eng., he made an innovation with an Electronic Trainer learning media. This UKSW Electronics Engineering and Computer Faculty (FTEK) lecturer revealed that for basic electronic learning media, it mostly uses imported trainers from overseas like China and India. Of course, the cost is still relatively high at around 15-30 million rupiah.

“Well, not all schools are able to provide basic electronic learning media, because the cost is rather expensive. From here, I tried to make a similar instrument called Trainer Elektronika Digital Terintegrasi (Integrated Digital Electronic Trainer) with an affordable price,” explained Deddy.

Deddy claims that the electronic trainer that he produced has superiorities over the other existing products. This electronic trainer has a chip that can clearly be seen, so that it facilitates the learning process. This product can also be used in the fields of Computer Engineering, Automotive, Informatics Engineering, Physics, as well as Machine Engineering at the vocational high school level and polytechnic school level.

This Head of the UKSW Research Innovation Bureau (BIR) added that this product, which was arranged in a small case, facilitates students to design digital logic with IC TTL and CMOS. The topics that are available include a basic gate, latch, flip flop, counter, register, SIPO, SISO, PISO, PIPO, viewer, ADC and DAC, multiplexer, demultiplexer, decoder and encoder, arduino programming, and multivibrator.

Meanwhile, the digital programming can be used for architecture and introduction to primary registers in an AVR microcontroller, AVR basic programming with C language, intersecting and repetition, timer, interruptions, serial communication, as well as I2C.

With the numerous tools in this trainer, Deddy set a price of four million rupiah for every product. “I hope this product can be used by schools that are unable to afford expensive trainers for their students, moreover if they use products from overseas. This product, which has already been patented, is currently being used by UKSW FTEK and UNS Surakarta,” he stated.

Lusiawati Dewi and Deddy Susilo stated that with them both being in BIC, it is hoped to attract investors, so that their innovative products can be marketed to society maximally. These two lecturers also urge society to take more advantages of the various innovations that have been created, because they have more benefits than the previous products.  

Next, both of their innovation results will be put in the BIC magazine that will be circulated in various cities in Indonesia this December. The e-book version can also be downloaded through the webpage. (at/chis/upk_bpha/photo:gde).
