  • Microcontroller projects featuring Digilent’s PIC-based embedded control boards, developed in environments such as Microchip MPLAB.

This contest is open to all university students. Projects can be entered by individuals or students working in pairs. To register you will need to submit the registration document along with a general specification document for your proposed project. You will need to submit your project proposal to the region nearest you.

Digilent will be awarding generous prizes. Also, as a courtesy from Digilent, all participants who present their projects in the final contest will get to keep the Digilent hardware they used for their work, even if they do not receive a prize
