The Cypress Bluetooth 5 IoT Contest
Nothing excites Cypress more than human ingenuity. As engineers, our role is to give innovators and out-of-the-box thinkers the tools to create breakthrough products and disrupt markets–in record time. That is why, as the leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for the IoT, Cypress, in partnership with Mouser is announcing Make With Mesh: The Cypress Bluetooth 5 IoT Design Contest.
First Prize : $2,000 Cash Prize
Second Prize : Comgrow Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D Printer
Third Prize : Maker Tools worth $500
APPLY FOR FREE HARDWARE
To be in with a chance to win these great prizes, firstly you need to come up with an interesting Bluetooth 5 concept that incorporates the new Cypress boards. We are giving away CYW20819 Bluetooth 5 kits to the best project ideas. You can apply for as many boards as you like to be used in your project contest entry. The hardware up for grabs is listed below:
CYW20819 Bluetooth 5 Arduino Eval Board (CYW920819EVB-02)
A flexible prototyping platform for CYW20819 that provides a Motion Sensor, Thermistor, and Arduino-compatible headers to allow you to expand functionality with off-the-shelf shields:
EZ-BT™ Bluetooth Mesh Development Kit (CYBT-213043-MESH)
A development platform providing 4 Bluetooth Mesh enabled nodes allowing you to quickly and easily create your own Bluetooth Mesh network. Each node provides a certified Bluetooth module featuring the CYW20819 SoC, as well as a RGB LED, Ambient Light Sensor, Thermistor, and PIR Motion Sensor. This platform is a best-in-class user experience with multiple mesh example projects and Android / iOS mobile applications to provision a mesh network.
