The "Application and Development of an Cloud based Integration Chip Platform" Was Convened for the Tianchi Platform T-Head Cup as Part of the China National Entrepreneurial Cup

2019/03/08 from T-Head

Following on from 2017 and 2018, this is the third year of cooperation with the National Undergraduate Integrated Circuit Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition.No longer is C-Sky Microsystems the dominant force,as T-Head is ready to assert its challenge.For students who participate in the challenge, they can receive a free development platform as well as expert guidance.Prizes for the winning team will include; a visit to Alibaba corporate enterprises, tickets for Alibaba's Aspara Computing Conference, Alibaba Cloud vouchers, and more. Finally, there will also be the opportunity to have a face-to-face meeting with Alibaba's technology giants!


Competition Title:

Application and Development of a Cloud based Integration Chip Platform.


Those eligible to participate:

Undergraduate and Postgraduate students (Master or PhD) majoring in integrated circuit design fields including; Electronics, IT, Computer Science, Automation, and more.


Competition Content:

With the help of directly attached sensors or execution peripherals based on the company's Wi-Fi DTU module (CP6301), participants are required to use the Java SDK to create simple cloud development, and form demonstration equipment for specific Industrial Applications, which may include intelligent agricultural irrigation or automation in buildings, thereby demonstrating agile development of cloud based integration chips.



>Wi-Fi DTU (Data Terminal Unit), also known as Wi-Fi Wireless Data Transmission terminal, is a device that uses the Wi-Fi network to conduct two-way transparent transmission of data.

>DTU can complete transparent transmission of serial port and IO port data through Wi-Fi, and also receive configuration information and control commands from the network.

>CP6301 is based on an industrial-grade secure microcontroller, embedded with the AliOS Things operating system, TCP/IP protocol stack, MQTT protocol stack, and can be directly connected to Alibaba Cloud device configuration.

>Modules are designed to help users carry out rapid application development based on Alibaba Cloud, and provide a simple development version of CP6301's Java SDK.

>Users can complete device configuration and control through simple development with the SDK.

>The CP6301 external interface has 1 RS485 interface and 7 GPIO ports.
