Mouser continues sponsorship of Create the Future Design Contest

Mouser Electronics is again a major sponsor of the Create the Future Design Contest, a challenge to engineers and students worldwide to create the next great thing.

Mouser's valued suppliers Intel and Analog Devices, Inc. are once again joining Mouser in sponsoring the 15th annual contest, produced by Tech Briefs Media Group, an SAE International Company. The grand prize winner receives worldwide recognition and a cash prize of $20,000 for an innovative product that benefits society and the economy. Previous contests have produced more than 12,000 design ideas from engineers, entrepreneurs and students in more than 100 countries.

Kevin Hess, Mouser Electronics Senior Vice President of Marketing says: "Fostering technical innovation has always been a major part of our mission at Mouser. We are very excited to again participate in this important event for engineers and students around the world."

Joseph Pramberger, President of Tech Briefs Media Group says: "Mouser is known for supporting innovation among engineers as well as providing unparalleled service to its customers. We are very happy to once again partner with Mouser and its suppliers, Intel and Analog Devices."

Last year's grand prize winner was Hyliion, a Pittsburgh-based transportation company that developed a hybrid electric technology for semi-trailers. Hyliion's system adapted the trailer portion of the tractor-trailer combination to use regenerative braking to capture power, saving more than 30 per cent on fuel and decreasing emissions by 10 per cent.

The Create the Future Design Contest brings attention to product designs that enhance quality of life, improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare or help to reduce dependence on nonrenewable energy sources. Previous grand prize-winning entries include an economical rapid screening device to prevent food-borne illness and a wheelchair propulsion system designed to increase the user's mobility while decreasing upper body repetitive strain injuries.

The Create the Future Design Contest was launched in 2002 by the publishers of NASA Tech Briefs magazine to help stimulate and reward engineering innovation. The grand prize winner will be chosen from the winners in seven entry categories: Aerospace and Defense, Automotive/Transportation, Consumer Products, Electronics/Sensors/IoT, Machinery/Automation/Robotics, Medical, and Sustainable Technologies.
