Non-English speakers need not apply ?

I entered as well.

I already have two of the evaluation modules and have been playing with them. There seem to be thousands of possible uses for this chip.

We at a minimum I guess we will get a $10 Amazon credit for entering ;-)

Quebec has some severe contest requirements that many companies choose not to get involved with, that includes those in Canada.

I'm just glad we aren't allowing androids this year. Damn built-in pick&place units. They've been so uppity since they got ballscrews and microsteppers.

hehe ... I had to look it up ...

"Natural Person" is legal-speak for NOT a company, corporation, or organization.

I just entered my idea. :-+

I might have just buried myself due to the complexity of the key concept, but I'm sure I'll learn a lot too.   :-BROKE

I figured more folks from the EEVblog community would have a stab at this contest, or they just haven't posted about it.

The app note TI is working on to help with designing coils to use with LDC1000 should be helpful. 

I'd like to try setting up a simulation in the Elmer finite element package to try out different coil and target combinations.  Someday....
