• Forum Community Competition - Winner gets a BigPic4 development board

    Although it was really neck and neck for a while, the winner is Pimentel, with a POV clock design. Great job everyone who participated! We have some plans to introduce a new competition in the near future. Here are the top 2 results.






    Through a generous donation by rmteo, we are holding our first Wiki Project writing competition. The prize for the winning project Wiki (as voted by the registered users) will be a used Mikro Elektronika BigPic4 development board with a 80-pin PIC18F8520. (Comes without LCD's or SDCard). Different processor options can be purchased. See http://www.mikroe.com/eng/products/v...pic-mcu-cards/ and http://www.mikroe.com/eng/products/v...pic-mcu-cards/ for more information.



    Any registered user can enter. Your project doesn't need to be the most elaborate or the most complicated. It does need to be clearly written and include a schematic and PicBasic code, with hopefully a picture, or possibly a youtube video to help show your completed creation, and or in action. You may use other peoples ideas, but you MUST give them credit, and link to their post(s), and or websites. Although you are allowed to use other peoples ideas, this needs to be YOUR project. The documentation needs to be 100% done by you.
    By entering, you are deemed to have accepted the rules of the competition, located here: http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/cont...y-Competitions

    Users should judge the articles based on:
    1. Are your description/instructions, pictures and schematics clearly written, and well placed?
    2. Usefulness - Does your project address a common problem? Is this something that would be helpful to many other users?
    3. Creativity - Find a creative way to solve a common problem? How about a creative way to display your Wiki? Need the use of a website to make your Wiki really special, then sign up for free space here at the picbasic forum!

    Good luck!
