Win free stuff by uploading a pic of your Fritzing circuit

Pull out your old Fritzing designs, or churn out a new one, and you might be able to win one of these prizes. Fritzing is looking for the top three designs which will receive these prizes. On the left is a Fritzing super upgrade kit with goodies like a Character LCD, DC motor and driver IC, shift register, LEDs, and buttons. In the middle is a free PCB from your design (they’ve started their own service to us Fritzing for board layout). Third prize is a motor driver breakout module for breadboard use.

You can get an idea of what others are submitting by poking around their project pages. You’ve got a bit more than a week to get your designs in for consideration. Their deadline is on Sunday, December 18th, 2011.

If this stuff doesn’t interest you, don’t forget to try your luck with 2012 Free Day!

    Designing a PCB in Fritzing is too high a price to pay…

    ;)

    what is fritzing?

  3. Petran says:

    does it still take 1min to load and half a minute to draw a jumper connection?
    if not, there is a hope

    The fritzing.org website is not working.

    I wrote a similar guide and it helps to isolate the LED and the photoresistor from eachother so that the photoresistor only sees the LED when it’s being reflected.

    Looks like he went more into the color detail where I just needed it for basic RGB.

    lol wrong page

    Hm, sorry, but i’d better design a pcb in gimp instead //kicad user.

    Designed a PCB not long ago in fritzing, it was pain free :)

    I’m missing the standard “only people in US are allowed to participate” disclaimer. It’s more missing any rules really. Are old designs allowed? Modified designs?

    I never heard of fritzing before, I might take a look. I hope it’s less of a trainwreck then kicad.

    Fritzing is fasta dn sinmple to use for PCB design. I’ve designed, printed and etched a large number of PCBs using fritzing and it works wonderfully!

    The parts library is still limited and it’s not as feature-rich as say Eagle or Kicad (obviously) but it’s super easy to use. The auturouter needs some tweaking, but it gets the job done with a little tweaking afterwards usually. The nice thing is being able to set via’s to be the size of standard through-holes. Thsi makes it a LOT easier to do the vias when etching your own board.

    Design your circuti on the breadboard section just like it’s setup on your breadboard, then from that create a schematic and a PCB. Doesn’t get much easier than that.
