3D Gesture-Controlled MGC3130 Hillstar Dev Kit

Table of contents

imageThe MGC3130 Hillstar Development KitMGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit builds a complete 3D Gesture Tracking and Recognition reference system consisting of:
  • MGC3130 Module
  • I2C™ to USB Bridge Module
  • 4-Layer reference electrode (95 x 60mm sensitive area)
The Hillstar concept includes a collection of layout references (Gerber files) for Electrode designs and ready-to-use Sensor modules with MGC3130 backside assembly.
Blogging Challenge
Successful RoadTesters will be invited to blog on the Sensors area in addition to providing the standard RoadTest review of the product; the blogs should fully describe use of the product in practical scenarios. Blogs should incorporate videos and images whenever possible. Each RoadTester will be required to submit a minimum of 3 blogs; each blog should be tagged with "3D_gesture". Final submissions are due on Friday, August 15, 2014; the Grand Prize will be awarded shortly thereafter.
Grand Prize
Microchip will provide the winner of the Blogging Challenge a suite of hardware and software tools supporting various PIC MCUs. The prize will consist of ICD3 Debugger (DV164035) , Explorer 16 Demo Board (DM240001) or PIC18F Explorer Board (DM183032) and a choice of  an 8-bit (SW006021-1), 16-bit (SW006022-1), or 32-bit (SW006023-1), MPLAB C compiler – total prize value is approximately $750!
