“The engineer's first problem in any design situation is to discover what the problem really is.”
This event tests the participants’ technical knowledge and their presence of mind in applying
their theoretical knowledge to find out and correct the bugs in circuits in both analog and
digital domains.

Education cannot make anybody an expert programmer any more than studying brushes and
pigment can make somebody an expert painter. This event brings out the talents required for
the embedded industry from the emerging engineers of today. This singular event tests their
programming skills over a multitude of languages – HDL, MATLAB and Assembly language.

C de-bug
Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the
code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it. This event
tests the participants’ fundamentals in debugging, in which they are required to find out the
bugs in the given C/C++ codes, and correct them. The contest is especially for those who have
delved deep into the sea of C/C++.

Comm. Inc.
[FONT="]This never-before seen event aims at educating the electronic engineer with interesting tidbits
and trivia in the fields of signals, communication and networking, which are essential to
discover and appreciate the intricacies of the technological developments that have taken
place around us.

[/FONT]Math Modeling
[FONT="]The human mind has never invented a labor-saving machine equal to algebra. Even geometry
may not be true, but it is highly advantageous. Here participants from a multitude of streams
unite to exhibit their analytical skills and understanding of higher mathematical concepts, to
solve practical problems by converting them into mathematical models.

On-Stage Events

How Stuff Works

This event is designed to test the perception and interpretation of the

everyday phenomena that one may witness, but to which one may

not have given second thoughts. This on-stage event tests the

participants’ awareness of the “how” and “why” of the things around.

General Quiz

With interactive audio-visual questions, the General Quiz is designed

to make the participants beat their brains out for the ever-elusive right

answer. This signature event is sure to draw large crowds for it

comprises questions from varied realms - entertainment, sports,

history, and current affairs.

Online Events

This online event tests the participants’ intuitive understanding of basic electronics. Given
just the basic elements – transistors, resistors, inductors and capacitors – connected in sinister
designs, the participant will need to identify the working of the circuit or the logic function that
it may represent.

Question Paper will be uploaded in the site on Feb 28, 9 PM IST

It is an event that caters to the enthusiastic VLSI designers of the corporate world. It
encourages contemporary thinking as well as out-of-the-box solutions to industrial problems in
CMOS technology.

Question Paper will be uploaded in the site on Feb 21, 9 PM IST

It's a mathematics oriented puzzles event. Some problems to be solved are
put up in the site on a weekly basis. Solve the problems and post the
solutions in the site within the stipulated time. This week's questions are
already up. Head up to the site.

Do you like interesting and tough puzzles? Are you thrilled by how a puzzle
is solved by a detective in mystery books? Then solve these puzzles. This is
also a weekly edition and this week's puzzles are up for grabs at the site.
Answer them and win goodies..

This is a line follower event. You are required to build an autonomous line follower robot that can overcome the real time traffic situations simulated in the arena specified.

For other rules and arena specifications, head to the web site.


Build a manually controlled mechanical robot to avoid obstacles in it's path and to do combat with an opponent robot

Prelims is sumo wrestling. . The arena will be a ring. The robot which gets pushed out of the ring will be disqualified.

In the finals, the bot will have to do the following jobs:

  • pass through ramps
  • pass through different terrains like sand, gravel, etc.
  • clear obstacles in it's path
  • guide a ball from the arena surface to the hole in top of a ramp.

Workshops truly reflect our credo of ‘fostering innovation’. By roping in stalwarts of the industry from various fields, we provide students with a unique opportunity to interact with them and gain exposure to cutting edge, high speed technology. Highly informative sessions on burgeoning technologies like VLSI, Embedded Systems, Wireless communications & Robotics by leading academicians serve as an eye-opener to budding technologists by enabling them to identify potential areas for their specialization.

1.Cypress Semiconductors: - 4th Mar, 2009
CyFi Low-Power RF Solution
The CyFi Low-Power RF solution is a highly reliable, easy-to-use 2.4-GHz answer to a wide range of wireless embedded control challenges. It enables designers to create wireless systems without making compromises to overcome the typical risks of unreliable performance, complex implementation, and high power consumption. By combining Cypress's PSoC programmable system-on-chip, a sophisticated yet lightweight network protocol stack, and a Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) transceiver, the CyFi solution achieves levels of reliability, simplicity, and power-efficiency unmatched by other embedded wireless technologies.

Apart from Demo, there will also be a Hands-On experience to the interested participants.

2.Texas Instruments: - 4th Mar, 2009
Exploring ARM & DSP using TI OMAP3530 processor
The new OMAP™ platform is based on the market’s first broad offering of the ARM® Cortex™-A8 core to provide an unprecedented combination of laptop-like performance at handheld power levels in a single chip. With more than four times the processing power of today’s 300MHz ARM9 devices, the superscalar 600 MHz Cortex-A8 core is integrated into four new OMAP35x applications processors.

The workshop will give you the overview of OMAP3530 applications processor, Embedded Linux, Beagle Board and a decoded MPEG4 demo on Beagle Board

3.Indian Space Research Organisation: - 6th Mar, 2009
On Chandrayaan by the Deputy Project Director of Chandrayaan
