The Hackster Crossover Code Challenge might be over, but really, it’s just the beginning for you. Now it’s your chance to take advantage of all the ideas to jump start your next design.


The Crossover Code Challenge generated lots of project examples using NXP’s i.MX RT1010 EVK and MCUXpresso software. All of which are available for you to leverage here. These projects include things like pictures, documentation, schematics and software and spanned applications like  a rover platform with internet control, speech recognition, and even an interactive vocoder synth application.  These projects take advantage of various product features and demonstrate the flexibility of the i.MX RT1010 device, giving examples for how to use the FlexIO and FlexSRAM, the ADC, SAI and SPI (just to name a few).


Thanks again to Hackster, the Hackster community for all of their great ideas and initiatives with the i.MX RT1010. And congratulations to the top 3 winning entries, plus 14 runner-up entries.
