That's very good to hear, ic78man08. I hope we see a ton of competition in this contest. It would be good to see both professional engineers and engineering students participate.

Hi Rob,

This is the most excitement I have ever seen out of my mechanical engineering colleagues over an electronic product. TI's LDC1000 is an easy-to-use component for anyone to create greatness in their design.

Being a senior member of the IEEE, and former chairman of Educational Activities Committee on Long Island, ny---I will be contacting local engineering students as well as the Graduates of the last decade (GOLD) IEEE members. Seasoned veterans and novices alike will hopefully find this contest challenging.

This is a good idea for a contest. It's also very specific. It will be interesting to see have many entries come in. I hope the word gets out to engineering students.

Kaspersky Labs indicated at its February meeting that cyber attacks are far more sophisticated than previous thought. It turns out even air-gapping (disconnecting computers from the Internet to protect against cyber intrusion) isnít a foolproof way to avoid getting hacked. And Kaspersky implied the NSA is the smartest attacker.
