Project Title
OLEA APP Configuration Software on Automotive chip

6 months – between February and September 2021

Working hours
35 hours a week at Silicon Mobility office

1000€/month + Tickets Restaurant

Student level
Internship for Master/Engineer Degree

Project Description
To enhance its OLEA® APPLICATION product, Silicon Mobility identifies the needs to offer its customers a software solution to help with the application and safety configuration of these products. The Silicon Mobility solution is based on OLEA® FPCU (Field Programmable Control Unit that embeds a CPU core, programmable logic, memories and peripherals.

This internship consists in analysing, defining, developing and testing this solution.

The internship includes several tasks:

1. Requirements analysis
In this task, the intern will have to learn the architecture of OLEA® FPCU and their motor control applications. A particular attention will have to be done with interface and resources used for the motor control application and its safety concept. It will be necessary to analyse existing configuration on actual application and to find the most appropriated new solution.

2. System specification
Based on the previous analysis and in relation with R&D team as well as support customer team, the intern will have to write a detailed specification of the solution. This specification shall cover all following aspects:
• Host software design, configuration and integration principles
• Embedded software design for code generation
• User Guide and engineering documentation conform to ISO 26262 standard.

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

For this internship we are looking for a candidate with good knowledge on embedded systems and embedded C programming.
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.
