Arrow Electronics and Cypress Semiconductor Corp. have announced a global design, do-it-yourself contest that gives engineers the opportunity to prototype new devices for the Internet of Things. The PSoC Pioneer Challenge: Maker Faire Edition leverages the PSoC 4 BLE Pioneer kit, a Bluetooth Low Energy-enabled development board from Cypress.

The winner will be awarded a $2,500 prize to cover travel expenses to the Maker Faire Bay Area in San Mateo, California, this spring, where he or she will showcase the winning design. The runner-up will receive $450 worth of gift certificates to buy materials from Cypress, Arrow and Maker Media, the host of the Maker Faire.

Contest entries will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on Monday, March 23, 2015, and judged based on the ingenuity and potential of the design, as well as the use of the board and accompanying software. Finalists will be selected by the online reader community of Make, Make Media's publication for the maker community, and the winners will be selected by a panel of judges, including representatives from Cypress, Arrow and the editorial staff of Make.
