Products featured in the major prize

element14 is giving away 10 major prize packages which include the following products:

  • Raspberry Pi Pico – A flexible, high-performance and low-cost development platform that can be deployed directly into end products. The Raspberry Pi Pico features 2MB of on-board QSPI Flash, 26 multifunction GPIO pins (of which three can be used in analog inputs), and an onboard buck-boost regulator. User-friendly developer tools are available including simple drag and drop programming via micro-USB, 3-pin Serial Wire Debug (SWD) for interactive debugging, a comprehensive C SDK and a mature MicroPython port. With castellated pads, Raspberry Pi Pico is designed for integration into a range of professional microcontroller applications.
  • Pi NoIR 8MP Camera – The infrared camera module features the same 8MP image sensor as the standard Raspberry Pi camera without an infrared cut-off filter to increase IR light sensitivity. The Pi NoIR is compatible with all Raspberry Pi models and provides high definition, high sensitivity, low crosstalk and low noise image capture in an ultra-small and lightweight design. The camera module connects to the Raspberry Pi board via the CSI connector which is capable of processing high data rates.
