How would you utilize SparkFun's RedBoard Artemis ATP, Qwiic components, and machine learning? We're looking for the next great group of projects to show how these three items can be incorporated into everyday life. Enter a project into one of four categories: Business, Home, Nature, and Wildcard.
1. The SparkFun RedBoard Artemis ATP (or "All the Pins!") board breaks out absolutely every one of Artemis' 48 GPIO in a familiar Mega-like form factor. The board features the Artemis module, which allows for low-power machine learning and is compatible with TensorFlow. Additionally, the Artemis module is powered by the Apollo3 mircoprocessor.
- Modern USB-C connector
- Qwiic connector for I2C
- Compatible with SparkFun's Arduino core and easily programmed under Arduino IDE
- Exposed JTAG connector for more advanced users
- A lot of GPIO
- Digital MEMS microphone for always-on voice commands with TensorFlow and machine learning
- Convenient jumper to measure current consumption for low power testing
- 1MB flash and 384k RAM
- Runs at 48MHz, with 96MHz turbo mode
2. SparkFun's Qwiic Connect System allows for easy prototyping with no soldering! The system uses 4-pin JST connectors to quickly interface development boards with sensors, LCDs, relays and more. Check out the Qwiic Connect System for a full list of available components.
Choose between the two kits below in your application for free hardware! Both kits have the required RedBoard Artemis ATP and various Qwiic components to help you get your project up and running.
- 1x SparkFun RedBoard Artemis ATP
- 1x SparkFun Micro OLED Breakout (Qwiic)
- 1x SparkFun Proximity Sensor Breakout - 20cm, VCNL4040 (Qwiic))
- 1x SparkFun Environmental Combo Breakout - CCS811/BME280 (Qwiic)
- 2x Qwiic Cable - 50mm
- 2x Qwiic Cable - 100mm
Three winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd place) will be chosen from each of the four categories. Judges will pick the best, qualifying projects, based on the judging criteria outlined in the rules sections. Bonus points will be awarded to projects that benefit the common good. For example, projects that help emergency services, keep people safe while exploring nature, etc...
Are you an inventor or entrepreneur with a great idea? Show us how you would use Artemis, Qwiic components, and machine learning in a product.
Get 100 Artemis modules to help launch your product to market, plus a $100 gift card to SparkFun Electronics will help you with any final parts you need.
These projects solve problems found at home. These can range from security to helping with meal planning to get made to fun in the backyard.
These projects solve problems in nature. These can range from helping people enjoy exploring the outdoors to wildlife conservation.
If your project doesn't quite fit any of the other categories, this is the place for it!
