Since the 1st PCB Design Contest, we have seen many meaningful projects, such as educational
robotics controller used in education, and solar
projects that impact surrounding communities.
What can we do today when technology is advancing rapidly and climate change is
Participate in the 5th PCBWay PCB Design Contest and let's explore the future together!
Projects must be original and uploaded or updated within specified time, otherwise the entry
will be disqualified.
The intellectual property right of projects belong to the entrants. There are three themes
included in the contest and entrants can upload more than one project.
Projects must include PCB design. We recommend to attach all documents related to the project (
such as bom, schematics, code, 3D design file, etc. ) to let judges better understand it.
How to participate? Click the
button on the contest page. Or create a new project in PCBWay community, click the "Submit project to…" button on the
page and select the corresponding theme.
Regarding the participation reward pico, the reviewer will put the corresponding beans into your
PCBWay account after reviewing, beans can be
used in store to exchange pico.
The final interpretation right belongs to PCBWay. Just leave a message below if you have any
