The Design Challenge is taking place right now. Contestants can use the NXP’s Cortex-M0 based LPC1100 and the LPCXpresso developer kit to build and test their designs. The NXP LPC1100 Design Challenge is organized into three phases: Conceptual Design, Hardware Design, and Final Prototype. Each phase has new requirements for contestants, and the judges and community members will determine the winners of each phase. The Grand Prize is $3,000 in Apple gift cards.
