element14 launches ThinkON design challenge

element14.com has teamed up with ON Semiconductor and Hackster.io to inspire developers to create innovative solutions to everyday problems as part of the ThinkON Design Challenge.

Both element14 and Hackster members are invited to design the most creative solution utilizing the ON Semiconductor RSL10 Sensor Development Kit (RSL10-SENSE-GEVK).

ThinkONON Semiconductor’s RSL10 Sensor Development Kit is a compact and comprehensive platform for electronic designers to easily develop IoT applications with leading sensor technology and the industry’s lowest power Bluetooth low energy SoC. The development kit features a full range of sensors including environmental, inertial (3-axis accelerometer, 3-asix gyroscope and a low-power smart hub for motion sensing), a geomagnetic sensor, and an ambient light sensor. Developers can use the sensors provided on the board or add their own sensors and actuators to be controlled by the RSL10 Sense and Control app.

“This new design challenge really pushes element14 and Hackster,io community members to think differently about solutions that can have a true impact onthe world around them,” said Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Community and Social Media for the element14 Community.

Designers can apply to participate in “ThinkON” now through October 11 by submitting their proposals online. On October 18, up to 50 challengers will select to receive the ON Semiconductor RSL10 Sensor Development Kit   to build their designs. The challengers will have about 11 weeks to build their projects, and submit at least one blog post tracking their progress and sharing their design with the element14 and Hackster.io online communities.

A panel of judges from the element14 Community will evaluate entries based on originality, innovation and technical merit. Projects will be due on January 1, with winners being announced and prizes shipped on February 1.  The best overall entry will receive a Lulzbot Mini 2 Desktop 3D Printer, with further prizes awarded for the best entry in each of 3 categories: the best entry in Wearables or Heathcare will receive a HTC VIVE Pro Virtual Reality System and the best entries in Safety or Asset Monitoring  and Smart Home will both receive an Apple iPad Pro (12.9Inch).
