You've got to love a good design contest, especially one that offers a great prize. Texas Instruments just launched the eZ Design Contest, and it's powered by the TechOnLine VirtualLab.
In a nutshell, you first try out the development tool in the Virtual Labs. As the name implies, it's just like having the tool in your own lab. Then, you develop your design using an existing MSP430 development tool, the eZ430-F2013, or you can continue using the VirtuaLab.
You can even help choose the winner by rating the entries.
Now for the important partgrand prize, first place, and second place winners will each receive a DLP HDTV, airfare, lodging, and entry to the MSP430 Advanced Technical Conference in Dallas, Texas November 7-9.
What are you waiting for. The link to the contest is www.designmsp430.com.
