Giveaway ends in !


As innovators, meet the technological expectations of our modern world through Maxim Integrated’s nanoPower solutions. Today’s devices are rapidly shrinking with an ever-increasing demand for greater functionality. Nanopower enables designers to extend a tiny device’s overall operation and shelf life through one of the best techniques available—lowering it’s quiescent current (IQ).

All About Circuits is teaming up with Maxim Integrated to giveaway a few such nanoPower-enabled products. A MAX17222 Evaluation Kit and a MAX32660 Evaluation Kit.

    Hopefully building a robot that will have minimal-power-usage peripherals to maximize power consumption in other areas, such as in the motors for terrain navigation. Also may have IoT applications such as data transfer/communication and external control

  • ASAD ALI_1513399340 2018-11-09

    Being FPGA/DSP/ME/EE Engineer (self), these kits will be helpful for designing new equipment that i would like to use for safety during RF testing. 3D printer on the other hand is something i have been planning to purchase so that i can design custom parts for my Raspberry Pi based project. Hopefully one day, completion of this project will lead to a new device that can be used in automobiles(specially large Trucks) to provide drivers with important information about road/weather conditions, distances, sign post heights and so on.

    Remote Industrial data monitor / logger for a water treatment plant for rural applications with a sustainable alternate(solar) power source.

  • simzcool 2018-11-10

    multi-purpose application such as power glide application, water level monitor, turbine controls, substation remote applications

  • RAJESH JAT 2018-11-10

    I am going to build a project as heart attack monitor system that can be used by heart disease suffering person to get alert from heart attack as early as possible, so life risk can be reduce with your module as power supply and controller for wearable gadget. As power supply max ic consume less power and with efficient controller.

  • ben_whiteus 2018-11-11

    Need to develop a remote gas leakage sensor for a remote site. Intend to use solar power and rechargeable battery to power the circuitry, and LoRA for getting sensor update. These evaluation boards will come in handy for the project.

  • Samuelrobert 2018-11-11

    I think these would do very well increasing the flight time of drone and the performance of other mobile robots. It could increase a robots ability to interact with its surroundings with a greater number of or more sensitive sensors.

  • lilzo 2018-11-12

    3D printer would be very useful for my next projects for creating a prototype model for gravitational transportation system and remotely controlled those vehicles system.I really wish i could win this because with this I think i could get first prize in competition.

  • WaffleCat 2018-11-12

    Making flexible/movable enclosures for motion sensors for a full motion capture suit.

  • anthonyharing 2018-11-12

    I’d like to build a compact, portable medical suite to allow diagnosis and treatment in the field both during natural disasters and in remote locations where transport might not be readily available.

  • Jakub Misiorny 2018-11-13

    As Engineer I try to start my first project on Kickstarter. All i can tell that i need to design mixed signal PCB and very good enclosure for outdoor environment with air flow through it. That is why 3D printer whould help me a lot and PCB kits.

    I use it to increase the speed of robot work welding fine elements by means of phone boards and computer

  • dgloshen 2018-11-13

    Designing horticultural and aquaponic systems to propagate increased yield with a lower-to-no cost for self-sufficiency. Systems would provide data to automatically test and evaluate conditions and then using that information to adjust watering, lighting, and other environmental factors as necessary, all while being an environmentally friendly ecosystem.
