Win 1 of 3 Vinco development/ tablet PC combos
April 01, 2012 // Julien Happich
Spring 2012 sees USB solutions specialist Future Technology Devices International (FTDI) celebrate 20 years in the semiconductor business. For the occasion, the company is giving away three comprehensive Android application development packages for EE Times Europe' readers to win, each including its Arduino-inspired Vinco platform together with an Acer tablet PC.
As Vinco fully supports the Android Open Accessories initiative, it enables portable products using the Android operating system to control external hardware. By using their Acer A500, the lucky winners will be able to experiment with imaginative new Vinco-based application concepts. To further assist them with their creative process, two application boards (known as 'shields’) are also included: a touch key shield for developing advanced user interfaces, along with a multi-purpose MP3 audio codec, Ethernet-to-USB bridge and real-time clock shield. In addition, a Vinco Proto board brings the raw materials for users to build their own shields. This consists of a set of LEDs, connectors and other components together with a bare PCB ready to be populated. Each Vinco, tablet PC, shield and Proto board package is worth over Euro 550. Entrants who do not win will still be eligible for a 20% discount on their next purchase from the FTDI ChipSHOP.
