Freescale Tower Trivia contest

Posted on Wednesday, April 25th, 2012 in contest, dev boards by the machinegeek


You may be familiar with the Tower modular development system by Freescale. The Tower system consists of a family of MCU, sensor, RF and related modules which assemble into a cube-like structure through the use of side bus support panels which carry power and signals between modules. Freescale is currently conducting a Tower trivia contest to test your knowledge about their 50+ available modules. Freescale says:

With more than 50 development modules in Freescale’s growing Tower System portfolio, there may be a few things that you don’t know about our award-winning modular development platform. Now’s your chance to find out, so get ready to put your knowledge to the test!

Every week — 10 weeks in all — we’ll open a new Tower Trivia contest with a question about one of our modules. Correctly answer the trivia question and you’ll be automatically entered into the weekly drawing to win a Tower System module.

The correct Tower Trivia answer is that week’s prize — one of our 50 modules.

Check out Freescale’s Tower Trivia webpage for official rules.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
