Valued suppliers Intel and Analog Devices joined Mouser in sponsoring the 15th annual contest, produced by Tech Briefs Media Group, an SAE International Company. Together with COMSOL and Tech Briefs Media Group, the company will award the $20,000 grand prize to a team from Cornell University and Dimensional Energy of Ithaca, N.Y., for developing HI-Light, a ‘reverse-combustion’ technology that potentially transforms carbon conversion into a profitable enterprise while reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. Since 2014, the company has been a primary sponsor of the annual Tech Briefs Media Group’s Create the Future Design Contest, a global challenge to engineers and students to create the next great thing. “We congratulate this year’s winners and thank all of the entrants for their participation. Part of our mission here at Mouser is fostering technical innovation so it’s a natural fit for us to support this global design contest that celebrates ingenuity,” said Kevin Hess, Mouser senior vice president of marketing. “We are seeing exciting advancements in electronic design thanks to the creative engineers and innovators across the globe, including those who entered the Create the Future Design Contest.”
