Content / mission

As part of its product roadmap, Silicon-Mobility is developing its new generation of FPCU System-on-Chip. This innovative architectural component is based on a multi-core architecture combined with a patented real-time subsystem including an embedded programmable logic structure.

This apprenticeship consists in defining and developing several device drivers within the Low-level Software layer. It is a collection of embedded software modules which offer services needed to run the functional part of the upper software layer (system/application).

The project contains:


  • Analyze and understand the FPCU System-on-Chip and its components.

Development steps

  • Study and understand the module functionalities
  • Define the software requirements.
  • Describe the driver software architecture and refine it into a more precise description of the functions to be developed.
  • Code implementation in embedded C.
  • Functional and integration tests: definition, development, and execution. This implies SW and HW debug on the target.

Profile required

For this apprenticeship, we are looking for a candidate with good knowledge of embedded systems and embedded C programming.

RTL simulation and FPGA prototyping will be also an advantage.

Good skills in hardware design for embedded system would be appreciated.

The good candidate will be autonomous, rigorous with a strong team spirit.

English speaking is required.

Expected skills / knowledge

  • Embedded C coding
  • Embedded systems knowledge
  • Real-time software constraints
  • RTL simulation and FPGA debug
  • Quality management skills
