Circuitrix

Electronic circuits drive a large part of our lives today. These complex works of intellectual design intimidate even the brainiest, but there exists a rare breed of people who can look past the staggering complexity of electronic components into the true beauty of design behind these works of scholarly art. If you are one of those electrifying brains with the capacitance to stay grounded, and can work tirelessly with your circuits without resistance, then this is the place for you.Come, test your technical wizardry against the best, and build a simple but dynamic day-to-day circuit that leaves everyone delirious.

Online test

(1st March 2019, happens before Pragyan)

  • Level-1: Objective round (multiple choice)

  • Test has to be taken only once by a team.

  • 25 questions to be solved in 40 minutes.

    • +4 marks for correct answer

    • -1 marks for incorrect answer

    • 0 marks for unattempted questions

On Campus Round

  • This round is a hands-on task for the students who have passed the online test. Questions and components will be given on the spot.
  • On the day of the event there will be 2 rounds of which Round 1 will be eliminative.

Round 1:- Circuit Debugging

  • Participants will be given a faulty circuit. They are expected to debug the circuit to give correct output.

  • Round 1 is assessed based on time taken and closeness of the output to the desired output. Virtual money will be awarded to 8-10 selected teams.

Round 2:- Circuit Design

  • Participants will be given a problem statement. They are expected to design and build a circuit with the virtual money earned from the Circuit Debugging round

Rules:

  • A team should comprise of not more than 3 participants.
  • Prior registration is required in order to participate in the online round.
  • The decision of judges is final and binding.

 

Judging criteria:

For Debugging round

  • Circuit and the required output will be given in a sheet. Participants are expected to identify the fault and debug the circuit to get the correct output.

  • This round has a time limit of 45 mins.

  • Points will be given based on the following Factors - (closeness of the output with the required output, operation conditions, and number of components used).

  • Also say if the team completes in t minutes, then the team gets additional points of (45-t)*10.

  • Virtual money=total points

  • For the next round components have to be bought with the virtual money.

 

For the circuit design round

  • Same factors

  • Neatness of the circuit.

  • Virtual money that is left.

Sample Problem:I am an X dimensional body. I can see a point, I can see a line, I can see a square, but I can't see a sphere. I am great, because I have n sides such that n = Smallest perfect number -sqrt(n). I am made of 2 sets of members: ones who meet and ones who don't.The ones who meet have all their parameters alike. Find me!!

Design a waveform generator using an op-amp that generates this waveform at X kHz.

Online Round date : 2nd March 2019

FAQ:

Ques: How many participants per team?

Ans: Maximum of three.

 

Ques: Do all participants have to be from the same college?

Ans: No. The members of a team can be from different colleges.

 

Ques: Are there any prerequisites for participating in this event?

Ans: Just a basic knowledge of electronics will suffice for participating in the event.


Ques: Is UG-PG collaboration allowed?
Ans: Yes


Ques: When will I be intimated if I am selected for the next round?
Ans: As soon as the online round is completed and evaluation is done, you will be intimated over phone call/email for the same, if qualified.
