The Best of the Best: Digilent Design Contest Worldwide Finals 2014

To me, one of the most enjoyable company events is being a judge for the Digilent Design Contest US each year. I get to meet the talented students who are involved and play around the innovative applications powered by Digilent hardware. As Digilent boards are used worldwide, the Digilent Design Contest is also held worldwide in Europe, Japan, and China. Every two years, Digilent will bring top teams from each region to compete for the world championship. This year, the worldwide finals were held at the Digilent China Training Center in Shanghai.

The 10th annual EU Digilent Design Contest: Another success in innovation

It’s been a exciting weekend here in Romania, and the 10th edition of the EU Digilent Design Contest is now in the books! What started 10 years ago as a small contest held at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca has turned into something much bigger. Since then, we’ve sponsored contests in the USA, China, and India, and our Romanian contest now covers the entire EU!

Come see us at Maker Faire 2014!

Today, half of the Digilent team has already left to go to Romania for our EU Design Contest, while the other half of us are getting the last minute things together to leave for Bay Area Maker Faire. From all across the world, “makers” (people who enjoy making and creating things) flock to the Bay Area to attend the Bay Area World Maker Faire, which is projected to have over 125,000 attendees! This year, we are sharing a booth with our supplier-partner, Microchip Technologies, and have quite the line-up for anyone who comes by.
