List is closed. Thank you for your entries.

 

Ti has agreed to send each of the listed entries a kit( FET + Board ).... which is certainly awesome on their part.

Thanks TI!

I don't think I've seen any other vendor being so kind.

Many thanks to TI for being so generous!!!

 

Congratulations everyone!

I can't wait to see what we come up with.

The learning curve on the ESI looks steep. I'm currently in hospital after a hernia operation. (Actually typing this from my hospital bed.) Now may be a good time to get some reading done!

Ouf, I hope everything goes well for you and you get out and home soon!

Does sound like good reading time though.

I've read through the ESI stuff a couple times and it's still fairly confusing, its a pretty wild bit of hardware .

The post @@rampadc made requesting to withdraw the entry already made... it's now done with strike-through text. This suggests, to me at least, that rampadc has withdrawn the request to withdraw the entry and now wants to participate. If this is the case and rampadc does in fact want to participate, I have no qualms with rampadc receiving the kit I was going to receive if TI cannot provide a kit to rampadc.

 

Contest time!

Five winners get a MSP-TS430PZ100($89) target board along with an MSP-FET($115). Five!

 

This contest is in partnership with TI. They are looking for ideas and applications that could make use of their Extended Scan Interface(pg 744) or ESI. One of the biggest markets of the MSP430 is flow metering which is where this module is widely used.

 

1. Come up with an application using the MSP430FR6989 chip ESI.

2. Write it down below.

3. If you win, you implement your idea with your kit and get featured on TI's MSP430 Blog.

 

Rules:

1. You have to have at-least 5 reputation points.

2. Keep a small project log in the Projects section. This is so that it can be published later on TI's Blog.

 

Dates:

  • Contest begins August 15th, 2014.
  • Contest ends August 30th, 2014.
  • Winners will be announced first week of September.

I did withdraw my entry but when I saw bluehash included me in the previous entry post anyhow, I withdrew my withdrawal because if TI decides to give one to me, there might be some confusion. But now that bluehash noticed it, I definitely want to withdraw my entry.
