WIZnet iEthernet Design Contest 2007 Winners Announcement


The WIZnet iEthernet Design Contest 2007 gave engineers throughout the embedded design community a chance to join the Ethernet revolution while competing for a share of $15,000 in cash prizes and international recognition. Designers from around the world quickly stepped up to the challenge by incorporating WIZnet’s W5100 hardwired TCP/IP Ethernet controller in innovative embedded projects. Within weeks of the contest launch, designers began submitting their exciting, next-generation, Ethernet-enabled embedded systems.

After spending many long days and nights closely studying the entries and judging them on their technical merit, originality, usefulness, cost-effectiveness, and design optimization, the judges presented their scores to the contest administrator. The results are now final, and we’re proud to announce the winners.



Third Place : DMX Portal

The well-designed DMX Portal is an affordable DMX lighting controller. You can use the novel system to remotely control up to 512 channels through an IP-based network or directly interface them to embedded systems with a serial connection. It was designed to be perfectly suited for designers who want to off-load DMX management and refreshes from the main system controller.
