element14 launches Summer of FPGA Design Challenge with Digilent.
About the Challenge
The challenge invites community members to put their FPGA skills to the test using the Diligent Cmod S7.
Submit your application with a summary describing an FPGA project of your choice, using Diglient’s Cmod S7 for a chance to win a range of amazing prizes. The possibilities are endless—refer to the examples below to see what you could build.
Example applications could include:
- Image Recognition
- Home Scientific Equipment
- Signal Processor
- Proof of Concept
- Processor Off Loading System
Applications are now open to become one of the 30 sponsored challengers who will receive a free Digilent Cmod S7, a small, 48‐pin DIP form factor board, built around the Xilinx Spartan 7 FPGA. The sponsored challengers will be announced on October 1. Participants will have just over 10 weeks to complete their designs and submit 10 blog posts covering their development process. Entries will be judged on innovation, technical merit, and FPGA use.
