As the healthcare industry rapidly evolves, the technology supporting healthcare needs to evolve with it. The importance of building smart, connected, and secure devices is becoming increasingly clear.
Now more than ever, we need developers like you to help the healthcare industry evolve into our expanding network of hardware. Use - one of the thousands of Microchip devices - and bring your smart, connected, and secure idea to life.
Your solution should focus on the areas that need it most:
- Remote Patient Monitoring/Telehealth (at home or in a clinic)
- Drug Delivery (patient compliance, dosage measurement systems, medication delivery)
- Other (show us what we haven't thought of yet)
We are giving away 90 (30 each) Microchip IoT Development Kits and IoT Credits to help bring your idea to life. Choose which board is right for you when you apply:
These development kits are just a small portion of the Microchip ecosystem. Check out what else Microchip manufactures to help jumpstart your project here. Use any Microchip product in your project to qualify for the contest!
