I just heard from my contacts at AWR about their Stop Waiting and Start Designing challenge. Actually, it is a very clever way for you to share our AWR design stories in a chance to win an Apple iPad2. The company is giving away an iPad2 a month, and all you need to do is download a free evaluation trial of AWR software or share a design success story with the company. Some companies with stories already up on the site include Cree, J&R Microwave Solutions, and TriQuint Semiconductor.
