Is Binary your second language?

Always had a soft corner for electronics?

Working with a Breadboard is like child’s play?

Burned more ICs than you can count?

Counters, MUXs, Decoders, Adders and Flip-Flops are a delight to your eyes?

Well, It’s time to start making use of those grey cells of yours and have fun at the same time. Think outside the box and come up with insanely new ways to get things done. Play around with Zeners, Schottkys and TTLs. Set (….and Reset) yourself up for the challenge. Digital Electronics would have never been this much fun.





Description of the rounds:

The event has 2 rounds that test the participant’s knowledge of Digital Electronics, theoretical as well as practical. The first round is written round while the second round deals with circuit designing and optimisation.

Round 1:
This round is a written round where a set of objective and/or subjective questions will be given to the teams. The questions will be aimed at basic knowledge of electronics, digital logics and digital circuit designing. Each question will have an associated amount of virtual money. The time limit for this round is 90 minutes. At the end of the allotted time, the top 16 teams with the highest amount of virtual money in their account move on to the second round.

Round 2:
This round aims at testing the participant’s practical knowledge of the subject. The participants will be provided with a problem statement on the spot. The problem can involve combinational or sequential circuit designing problems or a combination of the two. All the datasheets and pinouts of all the ICs relevant to the problems will be provided, eliminating the need for prior knowledge of the same. It is an on the spot event spanning 3 hours which tests analytical skills, time management and optimization. Participants start the round with certain amount of virtual money in their account that they have carried over from the first round. They can use this money to buy ICs, the cost of which keeps increasing as time passes.

The total points that the teams earn in round 2 will be converted into money. Teams submitting a working design early will also get an added bonus amount that will get added to their account. At the end of two rounds the team with the highest amount of virtual money in their account will be declared the winner.

*These rules are subject to change. Any change in rules will be notified through the website. Participants are requested to keep themselves updated.





  1. All hardware, ICs and datasheets required for the event will be provided by the organizers.
  2. For round 2, all the circuits have to be implemented with the least number of ICs possible.
  3. All the ICs will be present in a limited quantity and every IC has a particular maximum amount that any one team can buy. Suppose an adder has an upper limit of 5, then no team can have more than 5 adders in their circuit at any point of time.
  4. Using lesser number of ICs than the given maximum doesn’t fetch you extra points.
  5. The voltage value at any node or current value at any node in the circuit can be used as input or output.
  6. Participants will not be allowed to access the internet while the event is in progress, neither are they allowed to carry any written or printed material with them.


All students with a valid identity card of their respective educational institutes are eligible to participate in the event.

Certification Policy:

1. The top two teams will be awarded Certificate of Merit.

2. The next three teams will be awarded Certificate of Excellence.

3. All the remaining teams selected for the second round shall be be awarded Certificate of Participation.

Team Specifications:

Minimum : 1 members
Maximum : 3 members

Judging Criteria



Judging criteria for round 2:

  • Design parameters viz gate delays, propagation length, power dissipation etc. Each IC will have an associated delay time, propagation length and average power dissipated at normal working conditions.  
  • No of ICs used. If you use lesser number of ICs, you get more points, but you receive no points for the number of ICs saved from your maximum limit.
  • Details of the circuit implemented by the participating team and clarity of explanation provided.

Tie breaker

  • If 2 or more teams have the same amount of money at the time of judging, the team that has submitted the solution earlier wins.
  • This rule is applicable to both the rounds.
  • In round 1, if a tie still persists then both the teams move on to the next round.
  • In round 2, if a tie still persists, the more optimal design will be adjudged the winner. If the tie still persists, the winner will be decided depending upon the first round scores.
