How to order tools

What stands for a “TOOL”?

A tool is considered as a board (e.g. Evaluation Module, Development Kit…). These are the parts that can be ordered to participate in the contest and up to an amount of 100$.


What stands for an “IC”?

ICs are chips, silicon (e.g. to be soldered on a PCB). These ones cannot be ordered as part of the 100$ budget, you will need to request them directly through the TI’s website and pay for them.

Requesting tools

The team leader must login to the tool request page on the TIIC Europe Portal and submit the teams’ tool request online. The tool/boards request must be $100 or less and must only include tools. You cannot order more than 5 units of the same development tool. ICs are not allowed to be ordered and will not be accepted as part of the tool request. Tool requests must be made before the deadline: 23:59 (GMT) on 30th April 2016.

We advise you to firstly check the Recommended Tools list, also available on the tool request page of the TIIC Europe Portal for the most popular tools. If the tool you want is not on the list, use the Freeform and fill in the part number, website hyperlink and price.

Notes:

  • No PO Box Addresses will be accepted in the shipping address.
  • Do not order samples this way.

Non-EU participants

Import charges?

TI ships tools from its European (EU) warehouse. This means that for non-EU participants, shipments of tools could be subject to local import duties (such as VAT) and customs clearance charges on arrival in your country. These charges are your responsibility. They will not be paid by TI under any circumstances.


What can you do to avoid import charges?

In order to try to avoid such charges we recommend the following:

  • Use your professor and your University as the shipping address, rather than your home or lodging address.
  • Purchasing the tools you need from a Local Distributor in your country may be easier for some items and avoids all import charges (We do not give teams cash. You will have to pay for the tools yourself).

Need help?

  1. We encourage you to have a discussion with your professor.
