Dear Engineering & Computer Science Students

You are cordially invited to participate in the IEEE Orange County Section Student Design Contest that will be held on November 3, 2010, at the 8th International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference at the Irvine Hilton Hotel. This targeted event enables dialogue among peers and experts in our field and it is an outstanding networking opportunity for graduating students seeking new opportunities in the high-tech industry.

Project Proposal

The Student Design Contest is designed to encourage engineering and computer science students attending the Southern California Universities & Colleges (undergraduates & graduates) to work on a new design (paper design is also accepted) and present their work at the 8th International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference via a poster display (poster size: 24x36 or slightly larger).

The design project could be a chip-level design, a board-level design (microprocessor or microcontroller based, etc.), a software project, or a detailed technology analysis/research. Each project will be judged based on its overall complexity, originality, and completion of the work.

The Design Projects Could Be In . . .

  • Hardware Design
• Software Design
• Analog Design
• Digital Design
• Chip Design / SoC
• Optics
• Embedded platforms
• Instrumentation
• Software Algorithms
• FPGA-Based Design
• Microcontroller-Based
• Detailed Technology Analysis/Research
• Biological
• Embedded Systems
• Robotics
• Web-Related Projects
• And Other Related Topics . . .

“Wild & Crazy” Design Projects Are Also Welcomed!

We Look Forward To Hearing From You.
