Want to put your ARM and PSoC design skills up against those of your peers?
• Want to present your design directly to Cypress CEO T.J. Rodgers and Cypress’s executive staff?
• Want to comment on your peers’ PSoC designs, holding power over whether their designs get time in the industry spotlight from Cypress and EE Times?
Check out the ARM® Cortex™-M3/PSoC 5 Design Challenge, a test of design skill geared to determine the most innovative and useful designs for the Cypress PSoC 5 architecture. The PSoC 5 solution is powered by the ARM Cortex-M3 processor.
The contest breaks down into four tracks: Best Analog Design, Best Digital Design, Best PSoC Creator Component Design, and the Community Choice Design – selected by popular vote of the Cypress Design Community (www.cypress.com/go/community).
Community members who vote on submitted projects will also be eligible for prizes – and community registrants are eligible to win a free Apple iPad – so get registered now!
Visit www.cypress.com/go/challenge now to check out the contest and enter your design.
Here’s how it works:
• Stage 1 – Submit a schematic block diagram and abstract of your idea by January 10, 2011.
• Stage 2 – 100 first round winners will receive a PSoC 5 design kit and will then submit a video of their completed designs, along with a project file created in Cypress’s PSoC Creator IDE. Four winners will be selected – one for each contest category. Winners will receive $1,000 each.
• Stage 3 – The $2,500 Grand Prize will be selected from the four winning designs by an all-star panel of judges, including Cypress President and CEO, TJ. Rodgers; ARM Director of Enterprise and Embedded Solutions, Ian Ferguson; and Brian Fuller, Chief Product Strategist for EE Times.
The robust, flexible, analog-rich PSoC architecture lends itself to millions of possible design combinations. Which ones will the judges – and all of you, the design community – rank as Best in Show?
