Do you have a creative idea for a wearable device, a sensor hub, a portable medical device, or another internet of things (IoT) design? Enter the #MakeWithMaxim Design Contest with your idea on how you would use the MAX32630FTHR board. The deadline is April 14.

If your idea is selected, you’ll receive 1 of 50 free MAX32630FTHR boards. Giveaway winners will then have until June 13 to submit a project that documents their design. Three final design contest winners will be announced June 2. If you can’t wait until April to get your hands on one of these boards, you can purchase the MAX32630FTHR board online now.

The MAX32630FTHR board is a rapid development platform designed to help you quickly implement battery-optimized solutions using the MAX32630 ARM® Cortex®-M4F microcontroller. You can use the platform for fast proof-of-concept development and early software development to accelerate your overall time to market.

Available in a small 0.9-inch by 2.0-inch dual row header form factor, the board includes the MAX14690 wearable power management IC (PMIC) for optimal power conversion and battery management. Compatible with breadboards and off-the-shelf peripheral expansion boards, the platform includes on-board peripherals such as a dual-mode Bluetooth module, a micro SD card connector, a 6-axis accelerometer/gyro, an RGB indicator LED, and a pushbutton.

The design contest is hosted by All About Circuits, Digi-Key, and Maxim. Prizes include:

  • 1st place: Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition
  • 2nd place: Saleae Logic Pro 16 and a $500 store credit to Digi-Key
  • 3rd place: $500 store credit to Digi-Key
