NXP Semiconductors N.V. has just officially launched the "NXP mbed Design Challenge 2010". This global design contest for innovative hardware- and software-based applications comes with a complimentary NXP LPC1768 kit available while supplies last.

Engineers from around the globe are now invited to utilize the mbed NXP LPC1768 prototyping board and mbed online "Cloud" compiler to develop an innovative hardware- or software-based application.

Director of Marketing (microcontroller business line) for NXP Semiconductors, Jan Jaap Bezemer says, "For contestants, this year's NXP mbed Design Challenge will demonstrate just how easy it is to develop using mbed rapid prototyping tools. We're looking forward to seeing the next wave of breakthrough designs based on the LPC1768 microcontroller."

The deadline of submissions is on February 28, 2011. Design entries should include detailed project descriptions, schematics, project photos and source code (plus anything else needed to demonstrate the true merit of the design). Anyone with an mbed NXP LPC1768 prototyping board may enter, and thousands of complimentary mbed NXP LPC1768 kits are being distributed by NXP and ARM/mbed.

The criteria for judging include technical merit, originality, usefulness, cost-effectiveness and design optimization. A total of $10,000 cash will be awarded to design contest winners.
