Role & Missions

As part of the R&D System and Software team, the intern will participate in the development of the embedded software for DC-DC converter control application for Silicon Mobility’s OLEA® FPCU System-on-Chip dedicated to automotive applications.

The intern will contribute to the development, integration, and configuration of the software modules from specification down to verification using dedicated testing tools, covering the AGILE development flow with the project team.

The purpose of this internship is to analyse, define, develop, configure, and test the software solution.

During the internship period, several tasks will be addressed:

  1. Requirements analysis

As part of this task, the intern will get familiar with the proposed DC-DC control algorithm, the architecture of OLEA® FPCU, the development tools used

including OLEA® COMPOSER environment and flow. A particular attention will be paid to

the interface and resources to be used by the DC-DC application and the

relevant safety concepts.

  1. System and Software specification

Based 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:

  • Software modules definition and interfaces, configuration, and integration principles
  • Embedded software design for code generation
  • User guide and engineering documentation compliant with the ISO 26262 standard.

  3.  System and Software development

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