Digilent Design Contest US 2013

Posted on Wednesday, November 7th, 2012 in News by DP

Digilent has announced their annual Design contest for 2013. The contest is divided by regions, so far only US and EU contests have been announced, but other regions are expected to follow as well.

Basically you’re asked to design cool projects with Digilent gear which will be provided to you. Unfortunately the contest is only open to students. Read an excerpt from the announcement below.

Digilent Design Contests are engineering design contests open to all students enrolled in any educational institution in that region. Students are challenged to create an original project using Digilent boards, whether FPGA boards featuring state-of-the-art Xilinx FPGAs, microcontroller boards featuring Microchip microcontrollers, or chipKIT boards based on the Arduino development environment. This year students can also choose to implement a custom ARM processor (System-on-Chip hardware design) and application system in and around an FPGA using the ARM Cortex-M0 DesignStart Processor IP.

Contest enrollment begins on September 20th 2012. Project presentations and judging will take place on May 11th2013 in Baltimore, MD. Projects will be evaluated for creativity, feasibility, and originality. Digilent awards generous cash prizes to the top finishers and donates the hardware used by contestants.

    What if I’m not a student and live in New Zealand?
