Role & Missions

To enhance its OLEA® APPLICATION product offering, Silicon Mobility strives to provide its customers with a software solution to help them simplify the configuration  of the application and its safety features. The Silicon Mobility solution is based on OLEA® FPCU (Field Programmable Control Unit) that embeds a CPU core, programmable logic, memories, and peripherals.

During their assignment, the trainee will join the R&D system and software development team.

This internship aims at analyzing, defining, developing the configuration, and testing this solution.

During intership period, several tasks will be addressed:

  1. Requirements analysis

In the course of this task, the intern will learn the architecture of OLEA® FPCU and its applications (Inverter, DCDC). Particular attention will be paid to the interfaces and resources used by the applications and their safety concept. It will be necessary to analyze existing configurations on actual inverter applications and to propose the most appropriate and generic one.

  1. System specification

Basing on the previous analysis,  the intern will have to write a detailed specification of the solution in collaboration with other R&D team members as well as the customer support team. This specification shall cover following aspects:

  • Host software design, configuration, and integration principles
  • Embedded software design for code generation
  • User guide and engineering documentation compliant with the ISO 26262 standard.
  1. System development

During this task, the intern will have to develop, integrate, and validate the different components of the embedded software.
