The ChipTech Students Club at RVU organized the LogicBegin event on October 25th, 2023, as a part of the Center for IoT and Edge Computing. The targeted audience for this event comprised first-semester students enrolled in the B.Tech.programme at the School of Computer Science and Engineering. The event aimed to enhance their practical skills in preparation for the laboratories integral to the Digital Systems and Computer Architecture (DSCA) course.

Participants had the opportunity to interact with basic electronic components, immersing themselves in the realm of digital logic. Third-semester SoCSE students took on the roles of mentors and guides, ensuring that the participants were familiar with the components, addressing questions, and exchanging ideas to prepare them for upcoming labs.

The course mandated students to delve into IC fundamentals and demonstrate the construction of logic circuits. Additionally, they learned how to utilize logic gates and ICs to build Boolean expressions, ranging from basic to complex. This insightful experience proved crucial for beginners’ early engineering careers, serving as a real eye-opener.

Circuitrix-Light Up RVU

The Centre of IOT and Edge Computing & Chiptech Club RVU organized a project exhibition, “Circuitrix – Light up RVU”, electrifying exhibition on the theme of lights on 20 th December 2023. The event was inaugurated by Prof. Ajay Gupta & Prof. Rekha Gupta, Department of Computer Science, Old Dominion University, Verginia. The exhibition focused on incorporating creative and visually striking lighting elements into technological solutions through Electrifying Electronic Circuits & Systems. The first-year B.Tech, SoCSE students demonstrated technical prowess, aesthetic appeal, and practical applications in their projects, showcasing the exciting possibilities of merging electronics with visual impact. It fostered and motivated them to apply their knowledge in practical applications and also prepared them to work in teams.Close to 100 projects were put up by the students.
