Hackathon: 30-Minute Circuits!

Traditionally, Hackathons events can last up to a full day, where participants use their creative energies to solve problems. They provide opportunities for newcomers to become exposed to a new field, and allow veterans to hone their skills. This year at IMS we will be introducing a new Hackathon that will compress the event time, introducing an exciting race-like component. A basic RF circuit component will be selected for the design challenge and the specifics of the design won’t be revealed until the day of the event! The means that participants will have to use all their knowledge and skills to complete the challenge.  Everyone is encouraged to attend whether you’re a student, veteran RF engineer, or the foremost researcher in wireless technologies!
