Attention engineers, programmers, and electronics enthusiasts! The entry deadline of August 31 for the Renesas RL78 Green Energy Challenge is fast approaching. Here are some tips to keep you on schedule.
COMPLETE YOUR DESIGN
The challenge is to design an innovative, energy-efficient application that features the Renesas RL78 MCU, RL78/G13 Renesas Demonstration Kit (RDK), and IAR Toolchain. For information, visit the Eligible Parts page on the design challenge site.
GATHER YOUR ENTRY FILES
Once you’re done designing your RL78-based project, you need to gather and order your entry materials: project abstract, complete documentation, and code.
Make sure you register for the challenge to obtain a registration number. Label all of your files and documents with your registration number. Don’t put your name on the files and documents.
Consider organizing all of your entry in a ZIP (or RAR) file. Compressing all of your files into one ZIP will keep your entry organized and easier to submit.

Before you submit your entry, go through the following checklist one last time to ensure you have everything:
• Abstract (a short project description)
• Complete documentation (a detailed project description)
• Block diagram(s)
• Project photograph(s)
• Source code
• Files are properly labeled (your name doesn’t appear in the entry files)
More details are posted on the challenge’s FAQ webpage.
