      Job description

      The objective of the project is to investigate modeling options of closed-loop digitally controlled Switched Mode Power Converters. Digital control algorithms of our state-of-the-art controllers contain linear as well as non-linear feedback loops, which need to be considered in the modeling. Different models are needed, ranging from very detailed models for analog mixed-signal transient simulations and controller tuning, to concept models offering a more abstract view on the controller behavior.

      The goal of the project is to explore efficient modelling approaches and to choose an appropriate abstraction level based on the usage of the model.

      Main tasks of this proposal can be summarized as:

      • Analysis of state-of-the-art methods for modeling and control of DCDC converters
      • Comparison of different modeling approaches
      • Modelling and Design of state-of-the-art automotive digital controllers in Matlab and Simetrix

      The topic can be handled as Bachelor Thesis or Master Thesis.

      Start: 01.03.2018
      Full-time employment

      This position is subject to the collective agreement for workers and employees in the electrical and electronics industry. The salary for this position is EUR 1.380,-- gross p.m.(full-time basis) for Bachelor's students and EUR 1.825,-- gross p.m.(full-time basis) for Master's students.

      About Us

      Part of your life. Part of tomorrow.

      We make life easier, safer and greener - with technology that achieves more, consumes less and is accessible to everyone. Microelectronics from Infineon is the key to a better future. Efficient use of energy, environmentally-friendly mobility and security in a connected world - we solve some of the most critical challenges that our society faces while taking a conscientious approach to the use of natural resources.

      In the Automotive (ATV) segment, we develop high-value products and services to advance fully and partly self-driving cars. To enable radar-based advanced driver assistance systems, we deliver end-to-end solutions to capture and process complex, safety-critical data from the vehicle's surroundings. These include radar sensor ICs as well as microcontrollers optimized for radar signal preprocessing. We are helping to realize the Zero Vision for road traffic safety through our certified components and subsystems. In the connected car of the future, our security microcontrollers will help protect sensitive data more effectively. In addition, ATV is making a valuable contribution to the development of e-mobility. Power semiconductors are driving electric motors and innovative system solutions using silicon carbide are increasing the efficiency and reducing the weight of chargers and inverters. These technologies are paving the way for electric vehicles that offer the same range with smaller batteries. In combustion engines too, power semiconductors are making a difference by reducing exhaust emissions.
