Electronic Design & Test Applications Track opens to projects involving electronic system design and test. Application areas may include:

  • Automotive & energy
  • Internet of Things (IoT) solutions
  • Wireless communication
  • Healthcare
  • Agriculture
  • Environment monitoring/control
  • Other electronic systems

Teams are encouraged to take up the following applications areas recommended by the track sponsor.

Automotive & Energy Solutions

The automotive industry continues embracing its electronic technology revolution, further fusing with the energy ecosystem. By 2030, 30% of vehicles on the road will be electric.

Dramatic increases in the number of sensors and applications in new automobiles have evolved the vehicle from an IoT endpoint to a network edge hosting clusters of connected IoT devices.

Car electrification has grown from simple batteries to complete self-contained power grids. Car networks need to be optimized for power efficiency – sensors, communications, centralized processing, and power conversion – along with higher throughput data connectivity and enhanced security.

Keysight helps ensure complete vehicle systems work reliably, conform to standards, and provide the needed safety and security through comprehensive automotive and energy solutions.

Teams are invited to participate in this competition track with projects related to automotive and energy solutions.

Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions

The Internet of Things changes everything. Devices need to be more energy efficient, access points must support many more devices, wireless communication occurs on different cellular-IoT and wireless standards, network traffic is exponentially increasing, and the entire IoT system needs to be stress-tested and secured.

Keysight's IoT test solutions span the network stack: from physical-layer signal integrity to application-layer load testing and security. Keysight helps to build an Internet of Things that can scale with a comprehensive 5 C’s + 1 approach – connectivity, continuity, compliance, coexistence, cybersecurity, and customer experience.

Teams are invited to participate in this competition track with projects related to IoT test solutions.


1) E-Learning Platform

Visit Keysight University, an e-learning platform which will advance your knowledge of precision digital and RF measurement approaches, the latest industry standards, compliance, power, and more. You can learn basic to advanced techniques, tips, and tricks that lead to more accurate measurements and more insightful signal interpretation.

2) Essential Electronics Laboratory Instruments

Keysight offers a series of instruments that you would need to perform testing and measurement in your design projects. Among them are the digital multimeter, oscilloscope, power supply and function generator. Depending on your application, you can identify which suit your needs.

3) IoT Development Kit

The U3810A IoT Development Kit (an advanced version of previous U3800A kit) is part of the Keysight’s Advanced IoT Teaching Lab Solution, allowing participants to prototpye IoT solutions.

The intention of the courseware is to produce students who will fully understand the challenges and requirements of the IoT system design cycle, from design and validation to deployment in the market. In addition to teaching practical design and test techniques from the fundamentals of system design to wireless communication and power measurement, this courseware will also cover critical design considerations that have emerged with the evolution of the Internet of Things, such as cybersecurity, coexistence, compliance and continuity.

4) Other Education Resources

Keysight is committed in empowering academic educators and students with cutting-edge tools, knowledge, and skills necessary to stand out above the rest. Find out about our Industry-Ready Student Certification Program, University Support Program and many more.
