AAC, Digi-Key and Maxim Integrated, are partnering to give away 50 MAX32630FTHR boards in our first ever design contest. All entrants have until April 14, 2017 to submit a design idea to be selected to receive 1 of 50 free boards. These 50 will then have until June 13, 2017 to submit a project documenting all aspects of the design. Judges from AAC, Digi-Key, and Maxim will pick the 3 ultimate winners of the design contest to be announced June 27, 2017.

Take a look at the information below, get your creative juices flowing, and don't forget to enter the contest.

About the Board

The MAX32630FTHR board is a rapid development platform designed to help engineers quickly implement battery optimized solutions with the MAX32630 ARM® Cortex®-M4F microcontroller. With 2MB flash and 512KB low leakage SRAM, the MAX32630 has plenty of memory and horsepower to enable highly intelligent sensor and actuator nodes. The board also includes the MAX14690 wearable PMIC to provide optimal power conversion and battery management.

The form factor is a small 0.9in by 2.0in dual row header footprint compatible with breadboards and off-the-shelf peripheral expansion boards. On-board peripherals include a dual-mode Bluetooth® module, micro SD card connector, 6-axis accelerometer/-gyro, RGB indicator LED, and pushbutton. This power-optimized flexible platform provides quick proof-of-concepts and early software development to accelerate time to market. Download the code for the MAX32630FTHR on ARMmbed here.

    I would like to create a bicycle course/ride tracker with a companion web portal. The on-board gyro/accel would measure the quality of the ride while a gps tracker would chart/plot the path taken to the on-board sd card for upload to the community portal. (if they want to share)

      Interesting! I've had conversations with at least 3 other people who have had the same/similar idea recently... Here's our project for reference: Good luck!
