Design contest highlights practical benefits of PC/104 technology

Jan. 7, 2005


or the third consecutive year, the PC/104 Consortium is holding its Embedded Design Contest to allow users of the technology to showcase their applications and to recognize those who are designing creative products based on PC/104, PC/104- Plus, PCI-104, or EBX technology. Entries will be judged in three categories:

1.  Commercial for Industrial/Medical/Transportation/Other
2.  Commercial for Military/Aerospace/COTS
3.  Research Project

The winners will be announced at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Francisco in March. The winners in each category will be flown to San Francisco to attend an awards ceremony in their honor, and winning projects will be shown at the conference and presented to the press.

The 2005 PC/104 Embedded Design Contest also will be giving the design community a chance to choose their favorite entry from among the three categories' finalists. PC/104 Embedded Solutions will give readers the opportunity to vote online for the entry they feel best utilizes the technology the Consortium supports. Ballots will be sent via e-mail in February and also will be available at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Francisco.
