Digilent Design Contest

Digilent is proud to announce the 8th annual US regional Digilent Design Contest, to be held on May 6-7, 2012 in conjunction with the IEEE EIT conference in Indianapolis. Digilent Design Contests are engineering contests open to all students enrolled in any educational institution in that region.

Jan 25, 2012 – Registration begins
Feb 13, 2012 – Registration ends
Feb 23-Mar 1, 2012 – Hardware distribution
Apr 10-15, 2012 – Pre-evaluation report submission
May 1, 2012 – Submission of final project reports and presentations
May 6-7, 2012 – Final presentations in Indianapolis, IN

The contest is open to all students and the goal is to develop innovative projects using Digilent products. 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.

Digilent will be awarding prizes to the top finishers. Also, as a courtesy from Digilent, all participants who present their projects in the final EU contest will get to keep the Digilent hardware they used for their work.
