Google HPS

Google’s Hardware Product Sprint (HPS) is an immersive, 12-week virtual learning experience that introduces students to the product development process for consumer electronics.

🗓️ May 2019 - August 2019

Hardware Product Sprint (HPS) is a program for students who are interested in the technical aspect of hardware development. During this 12-week program, students work alongside a hardware engineer to build their own unique technical project and learn more about the technical opportunities available in consumer electronics, specifically through the example of Google's product development process.

One of the 28 electrical engineering students to “EVT week” at the Googleplex to assemble, build, debug and present final product to Google mechanical engineers, product designers, and the HPS community.

Over the 12 weeks, I designed a clock using several digital components, including microcontrollers, using a breadboard for initial prototyping. From there, I designed and laid out the traces for a final PCB, which I would later assemble and test at the end of the summer.
