Project Title
Java porting of an existing bitstream generation tool

5-6 months– between February/March/April and September 2021

Working hours
35 hours a week at Silicon Mobility office

1000€/month + Tickets Restaurant

Project Description
Silicon Mobility has developed a toolchain to implement complex functions in a programmable area (called FLU – Flexible Logic Unit) of OLEA® FPCUs. This toolchain includes software that allows the generation of the FLU bitstream from Place&Route results.
The objective of the project is to port and restructure existing software developed in Perl using the JAVA language. Particular care should be provided on the structuring of Java objects to allow the modularity and flexibility needed for future software evolutions.

This project will be divided in 3 main phases:

1. Exploration, the trainee will have to acquire knowledge of:
a. OLEA® FPCU programmable logic area
b. Current bitstream generator (called Agilis)

2. Specification, the trainee within the AMEC/Tools team will:
a. Specify the needs
b. Define the major steps of the development
c. Define the software architecture

3. Development, in this phase the trainee will:
a. Develop
b. Check
c. Write the user guide

For this training, we are looking for a candidate with:
• good knowledge of embedded systems and application software development
• good English level
• autonomy, rigor, strong team spirit, strong problem-solving skills
• knowledge of Hardware design for embedded system (would be appreciated)

Skills developed
• Application software development
• JAVA language
• General knowledge in microcontroller development
• Quality approach
