Missions

Silicon Mobility has developed a toolchain (OLEA® COMPOSER Target FrameWork) to implement complex functions in a programmable area (called FLU – Flexible Logic Unit) of OLEA® FPCUs. This toolchain allows the design and automatic generation of application code from high-level modelling in Matlab® / Simulink.

The algorithm implemented in Simulink will make use of shared resources available in the FPCU (communication interfaces, arithmetical computation unit…) which may lead to concurrent accesses to same resources. This implies the implementation of a sequencing of the operations, also called “delay balancing”.

The purpose of this internship is to develop a tool in charge of:

  • Listing all part of the algorithm which make use of shared resources
  • Finding the best sequencing to reduce the total algorithm duration

This project will be divided in 3 main phases:

  1. Exploration, the intern will have to acquire knowledge of:
    1. OLEA® COMPOSER toolchain
    2. OLEA® FPCU architecture
  2. Specification, the intern within the AxEC/Tools team will:
    1. Specify the needs
    2. Define the major steps of the development
    3. Define the software architecture
  3. Development, in this phase the intern will:
    1. Develop
    2. Check (using Simulink and Mentor® QuestaSim)
    3. Update the user guide
