Open 7400 prize: Zigduino and 4×4 Driver Shields

Posted on Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 in 7400 contest, contest by DP

Logos Electromechanical donated 2 Zigduino and 2 4×4 Driver Shields to the Open 7400 Competition. Get your entry in and this and other cool hardware can be yours.

The Zigduino is an Arduino-compatible microcontroller platform that integrates an 802.15.4 radio on the board. The radio can be configured to support any 802.15.4-based protocol, including ZigBee, Route Under MAC/6LoWPAN, and RF4CE.

The 4×4 Driver Shield is designed to enable users to switch DC loads up to 5A at up to 30V with no heat-sinking. It is ideal for such applications as driving solenoids, relays, and small DC motors.

Thank you to Logos Electromechanical for sponsoring the 2012 Open 7400 Logic Competition!
