Make It Challenge: Kinetis MCU

Posted on Friday, July 15th, 2011 in dev boards by the machinegeek

Freescale has announced a Make It Challenge for users of the Kinetis MCU.

Participants will compete by developing an innovative embedded application design using one of the Freescale Kinetis product families. 32-bit Kinetis MCUs represent the most scalable portfolio of ARM® Cortex™-M4 MCUs in the industry. Participants must complete a short online training class and pass a quiz. Participants will then submit a design paper and compete to become one of the ten semi-finalists. The selected ten semi-finalists will have the opportunity to select from discounted tools and create their own unique design, for the chance to win cash prizes, including a trip to Austin, Texas and complimentary admission to FTF 2012.

Read the Official Rules and register for the challenge today.

    It’s only open to residents of the United States of America, Canada (excluding Quebec), Mexico, Argentina, Brazil or Colombia. An odd mix.
