Freescale Semiconductor launched an embedded design contest in India August 1, giving engineering students and embedded developers the opportunity to turn their designs into 8bit innovations.

The contest challenges engineers to stretch their imagination and create innovative prototypes using Freescale's 8bit HCS08 8/16-pin microcontroller (MCU). To compete in the design challenge, participants must submit their design prototypes complete with schematics and software developed with CodeWarrior tools, along with a working, board-level demonstration of the product by October 31, 2007.

The submitted designs will be judged by a panel of industry experts and academicians for creativity, design efficiency, technical complexity, and overall application innovation and usefulness. The first 100 registrants will receive awards of appreciation to acknowledge early participation.

The winning entries will be announced at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) India at Bangalore on November 19-20. The first-prize winner will receive a four-day all-expenses-paid trip to Malaysia that includes sight-seeing opportunities and a tour of Freescale's manufacturing facilities in the region. The second-place winner will also have the opportunity to win an exciting prize. The top 25 entries will have a chance to attend FTF Bangalore for a close-up look at the latest technology innovations that Freescale is bringing to market.

"Freescale is dedicated to fostering a spirit of innovation and creativity within the Indian embedded design community," said Sanjeev Keskar, country manager for Freescale Semiconductor India Pvt. Ltd. "This contest provides students and industry professionals with challenging opportunities to compete for excellence in embedded design."

The contest underscores the company's commitment to nourishing technical talent in India. Other related initiatives include Freescale's University Program, which enables students to experience the latest semiconductor design technologies and provides access to Freescale products, architectures and training materials.
