  1. Hello Sir,

    Shivam Gupta this side, doing my PG Diploma in Embedded Systems & Designs from “CDAC-ACTS Pune”.

    I need either 1st or 2nd number board, because I am currently learning RTOS, CAN, SPI, I2C for automation projects.
    and we have to make a final project on the same in January and February.

    So these kits will help me to get some practical knowledge and convert my knowledge into skills.

    Thank you for organizing giveaways, this helps lots of deserving student who want to learn more and explore more.
    Looking for the endorsement!

    With the help of your kits, i am thinking to make a car security system with the help of CAN, RTOS & IOT technologies, will also publish our final project on LinkedIn & other info websites like Medium & other blogs..

    Will be waiting for your positive confirmation!

    Mainly i need ADC, SPI and Flash more than 128KB

  4. 1st number development board I want.
    I have a plan to start with experiments for a POC of project
    I hope this board will be very useful to start with my project as mainly i need ADC, SPI and flash more than 128K

  5. Hello sir, I am embedded firmware developer. I would like to explore on chipkit max32. With this board I would be studying CAN, USB & Ethernet. In later part I would think to implement code from functional safety prospective

  6. Hi, I am Sathya working as Application engineer at microchip. i would like to get TI’s MSP432 launchpad kit for my project. As the lauchpad has a inbuilt wifi module it would help me a lot for my personalized home automation. I am using firebase as a cloud platform with a mobile application for controlling it!!

  7. Hello sir, myself Ankit Rana IoT developer and embedded enthusiast.

    I would like to go for 1st and 2nd number board,
    I wanted to learn RTOS porting and core embedded stuff and more into peripheral programming like SPI,I2C,I2S,CAN,Weigand, and wanted to publish on my medium blog,

    Well I have experience with esp32 boards from espressif and exploring stm32F401RE but its little cumbersome for me,cause of lake resource.

    I have already developed one solution AQUASENSE for shrimp and Fish farmers
    you can check it on my github profile here.

    I’m appreciating this idea of giveaway, encouraging developers. I’m looking at this as a best opportunity and platform to learn embedded systems for those who didn’t get any platform and opportunity even they have knowledge and thrust to learn.

  8. Hi,I would like to work on Texas Instruments SimpleLink™ as I am more interested in linuxBSP and would like integrate multimedia modules like display,graphics and camera and get hands-on.

  9. Hello sir

  17. Hello sir , this is konasagar Achyut
    I would like to have board no. 3
    I have been trained in VLSI Front end Engineering and designing the digital circuits have become a quintessential part of my interests. As publishing research papers is also one among my career related work in which previously I have published in IJAEMA regarding design and Verification of Wallace tree multiplier which lacked in fpga prototyping. Currently I’m working with the on chip communication protocols.
    You can find my previous paper with my Google scholar link :

  18. Hello , this is konasagar Achyut , I have been trained in VLSI Front end engineering and currently doing a research for publishing a paper , previously I have already published a paper in IJAEMA regarding design and Verification of Wallace tree multiplier but lacked in prototyping on a board. It would be of a good deed if you can lend me an FPGA board for my research works and further quintessential interests in digital designing and prototyping. You can find my paper with the Google scholar link mentioned :

  19. I will go with Texas Instruments SimpleLink™ MSP432P401R high-precision ADC LaunchPad™ Development Kit to develop noble algorithm based on Swarm Intelligence.

    I will develop an effective swarm robotic platform to check artificial and collective intelligence algorithm. The platform will provide combination of sensors, actuators and inter agent communication by having ability to communicate through IrDA protocol. It will provide a power packed multipurpose board so that we can learn and understand basics of Embedded, Network Theory, Control System, Robotics, Data Communication and Sensors.

    I will going to use CRC Hardware safety mechanism of the controller in order to detect the data consistency in data flash memory and will monitor internal device states while user program code executes with the help of powerful EnergyTrace code analysis tool.

    After completing the project, I will summarize the whole system and will share with embedded space

    I have done several projects on embedded systems and also prepared documents but its not uploaded on Internet yet.

    Thanks & Regards
