The MAX32620FTHR board is a rapid development platform designed to help engineers quickly implement battery-optimized solutions with the MAX32620 Arm® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with FPU. The board also includes the MAX77650 ultra-low power PMIC and MAX17055 fuel gauge to provide efficient power conversion and battery management with minimal board space. The form factor is a small 0.9in x 2.0in dual-row header footprint that is compatible with breadboards and off-theshelf peripheral expansion boards. In addition to the dualrow headers, there are also two 12-pin Pmod™-compatible socket connectors for more expansion options. Also on board are common user-interface peripherals including two RGB indicator LEDs and two pushbuttons. These provide a power-optimized flexible platform for quick proofs-of-concept and early software development to enhance time to market.
The intelligence in our things might not even be obvious, but it’s there. The best IoT applications let us monitor things we’ve never dreamed of monitoring, and stay out of our way by managing themselves after you’ve set them up. In this contest, we’re challenging you to come up with creative ways to infuse intelligence into a new application using the MAX32620FTHR rapid development platform.
