Microchip IoT Contest

Electromaker and Microchip have teamed up to give you the opportunity to get your hands on the latest Microchip AVR-IoT WG Development Board. We want you to show us what you can build using the new Microchip AVR-IoT board and answer the following question:

What data would you send to the Google cloud and why?

With the launch of the new Microchip AVR-IoT WG Development Board, it is now easier and quicker than ever to send data securely to the Google cloud. Once you have your board, you can get connected to the Google IoT Cloud in 30 seconds flat! This development board is pre-configured to transmit light and temperature data to the cloud, allowing you to start collecting data instantly.

We are giving away a FREE Microchip AVR® based IoT Evaluation Board to the first 100 people that submit their project ideas to us!

Project submissions are now closed!

Winners will be announced on 2nd May 2019
