Does your project showcase Microchip components?

If so, you could be eligible to enter the Microchip Get Launched 2019 electronics design competition! We make great electronic components and we're looking for equally great examples of how they're enabling new, innovative products in the real world.

Prizes

While designing, funding, manufacturing, and shipping a new product to happy customers is a reward unto itself, it can't hurt to have some extra incentives along the way. Microchip is partnering with Mouser Electronics and Crowd Supply to offer participants a wide array of support and prizes.

Support package for all entries

Special prizes for select entries

  • 1 x $1,000 Teardown Best of Show, Judge's Choice Prize
  • 1 x $1,000 Teardown Best of Show, People's Choice Prize
  • 3 x Free pass to Microchip's 2019 MASTER's Conference ($3,573 value each)
  • 5 x Reduced-price parts for extended production run (10X initial run)
  • 5 x Up to $500 toward Crowd Supply fulfillment fees for on-time delivery to backers

Schedule

Entries can complete their 30-day Crowd Supply campaign anytime in

  1. However, entries that launch their Crowd Supply campaigns by Teardown (June 21-23, 2019) will be eligible for the Teardown Best of Show prizes that will be awarded live at Teardown.

Eligibility

To be eligible to enter this design competition, your project must:

  • Uniquely showcase one or (preferably!) more Microchip components
  • Pass the rigorous vetting process applied to all Crowd Supply projects

Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis and solely at the discretion of Microchip and Crowd Supply.

While you're free to showcase any components in the Microchip family, in case you need inspiration, we're especially interested in seeing entries that incorporate the Curiosity PIC32MZEF dev board or showcase components from our Internet of Things and Wireless Connectivity product lines.

How to Enter

The first step is to fill out the Crowd Supply project submission form and mention that you're interested in the Microchip Get Launched 2019 design competition.
