Renesas Electronics America presents the 2018 e-AI Design Contest.

Are you ready to let the world know about the great ideas you’ve conceptualized using embedded Artificial Intelligence (e-AI)? Enter Renesasʼ e-AI Design Contest to demonstrate your expertise and creativity by making your idea a reality and be recognized with both prizes and in the community. The contest is based on applications you create using a Renesas RZ-based MPU development board.

Contestants with approved abstracts will receive a GR-PEACH (RZ/A1H) or iWave Qseven(RZ/G1H) development kit for free. Contest winners will be awarded joint marketing opportunities and up to $5,000 cash*.
