Grand Prize: 2008 MINI Cooper or Harley-Davidson Motorcycles
MONTREAL, Sept. 10 /CNW/ -- Microbridge Technologies, Inc., the leader in
innovative advanced resistor technology, today announced the 2007 Rejustor(TM)
Application Design Challenge. The "Challenge" is an opportunity for entrants
to create and submit design entries suggesting and describing novel circuit
design ideas for any of the low-cost Rejustor devices available from
Microbridge. As the name suggests, Rejustors are highly precise re-adjustable
resistors. The Challenge, which will be launched on September 10, is only open
to legal residents of the United States and Canada excluding Quebec.
Grand Prize -- MINI Cooper or Harley-Davidson
The Grand Prize winner will select from either a 2008 standard equipped
MINI Cooper(R) (approximate retail value of prize: US$19,000) or a pair of
2008 standard equipped Harley-Davidson(R) touring motorcycles model "XL883"
(approximate retail value of prize: US$14,000). The Grand Prize Winner will
have the option of receiving one of the prizes above (either the MINI Cooper
or the Harley-Davidson) or a one-time cash payment of ten thousand dollars
Second Prizes -- 56" HDTV
Two Second Prize winners will each receive a Samsung 56" LCD HDTV.
Approximate retail value: US$3,000.
Third Prizes- Nintendo Wii Video Game System
Seven Third Prize winners will each receive a Nintendo Wii Video Game
Console. Approximate retail value: US$500.
Microbridge will promote certain entries and/or Challenge winners in
press and industry outreach and advertising, as well as in Microbridge
newsletters. Microbridge will also create a compilation of certain design
entries as a compendium of ideas for its Rejustor devices and as a resource
for the industry at-large.
"This is a great opportunity for someone to get noticed in what has
become a competitive industry for top talent," said Bob Frostholm, vice
president, Marketing and Strategic Alliances at Microbridge. "The competition
is also a good way to highlight the wide array of applications Rejustors are
suitable for, from precision analog compensation in military, aerospace and
satellite applications, to optical systems, engine sensors and tire-pressure
monitor in automotive applications. The universal applicability of the
Rejustor devices should stimulate some very creative thinking and we are
expecting to discover several new applications we haven't thought of yet. "
The Challenge period begins on September 10, 2007 at 12:01 AM Eastern
time and ends on December 31, 2007 at 11:59 PM Eastern time. Entries submitted
by mail in connection with this Challenge must be postmarked by December 15,
2007 and received by December 31, 2007.
Further information and registration forms are available online at
All design entries must be implemented using Rejustor devices from
Microbridge. Other devices may be incorporated into the design. Rejustors are
Microbridge resistor calibration products and enabling technology, which are
the first integrated calibration and temperature compensation systems for
analog resistor design and production. Microbridge technology enables product
designers to achieve one-step calibration and passive adjustment, is adaptive
and adjustable in circuit, and allows calibration in the analog domain to
improve the design of current and future products.
Entrants may submit as many unique design entries as they choose. Each
design entry must be submitted separately.
The design entries will be judged by a panel comprised of at least two
Microbridge employees with experience in Rejustor design, and at least two
independent judges with analog design backgrounds. Winners will be announced
on or after February 11, 2008.
Each design entry will be ranked on a 100-point scale, using the
1. Utilization of the unique features of the Rejustor (40%)
2. Design thoroughness, quality and level of engineering analysis of the
3. Creativity (20%)
4. Written description of how the Rejustor benefited the overall design
Design entries earning the highest overall scores will win.
