Rules

How to enter the contest:

Send a tarball containing your design via E-Mail to picocomp@belug.de including:

The deadline for submissions is 2021-07-01 00:00 UTC. Judging will then take place in the following month. Winners will be announced some time afterwards.

Notes:

Judges will do a binary --> UF2 conversion for flashing invoking uf2conv.py with this command:

uf2conv.py --family 0xE48BFF56 --base 0x10000000 picocomp.bin -o picocomp.uf2

We will not alter your bytes in any form, you need to include the CRC starting at byte 252 yourself.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them on our mailing list.
