DevKit Giveaway & Year-End Design Contest
January 25, 2019
Digi-Key Electronics is partnering with Embedded Computing Design to launch a monthly giveaway of its partners? development kits.
Here’s how it works:
Digi-Key Electronics is partnering with Embedded Computing Design to launch a monthly giveaway of its partners’ development kits. Each month, a different kit from a leading manufacturer will be featured. A total of five names will be chosen at random at the end of each month to receive the featured Dev Kit.
Then, those lucky winners can compete in a design challenge to win a $100 prize at the end of the month and are eligible for the Grand Prize of $4000 at the end of the year. In each case, all we are requiring is a “paper design,” whereby you tell us—very specifically—what you end product would look like, what functions it would have, why it would be a success in the market, and your expected bill of materials.
For timing, the winners selected at the end of February would have to send us their design by the end of March, and so on. Send the design to Rich Nass, EVP of Embedded Computing Design. The last giveaways will occur at the end of November 2019, so we’ll determine the overall Grand Prize winner in early 2020.
Dev Kit for December:
Recom Railway Reference Platform
The R-REF04-RIA12-2 from Recom is a complete reference design aimed at railway applications, populated with components rated for higher DC input currents, up to 10 A. It also includes a surge stopper that’s capable of blocking surge voltages up to 385 VDC.
