STMicroelectronics Launches STM32 Internet-of-Things Design Challenge in EMEA


STMicroelectronics believes in the creativity of engineers and, in its Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region, is challenging them to see what amazing Internet of Things (IoT) devices they can design around the STM32 family of ARM® Cortex®-M microcontrollers and ST’s other industry-leading components. The STM32 Design Contest, EMEA 2014 Edition is being launched at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany, tomorrow, February 24, 2014. 

Starting from any microcontrollers from ST’s STM32 family, the design challenge encourages participants to create products that include additional ST products suited for IoT use, such as motion MEMS, acoustic, and environment sensors; NFC dynamic tags; image processors and sensors; low-power Bluetooth; SPIRIT1 low-power radio transmitter; and broadband power-line communication chips.

Finalists will be selected on the basis of the level of innovation of the proposed application as well as the number of ST components used to implement it.

Nominations will be accepted on line beginning in March in the form of a video demonstrating operation of the IoT application and are due at ST by August 31, 2014. Finalists, chosen by a panel of ST engineers, will be announced in September. Visitors to will select the winners, who will be publicly crowned at a ceremony at Electronica in Munich on November 14, 2014.
