      Job description

      Open source instruction set architectures (ISAs) based processors have got momentum in custom System on Chip (SoCs) designs.

      The objective of the project is to find ways for Innovation around new processor technologies that can be used directly on Infineon products and to accelerate testing time during test-chip validation.

      Allowing a modular and extensible design enables companies to tailor the processor to their specific needs resulting on a lower energy footprint and highly reusable core.

      Your main responsibility is to act as an independent key research and development member within mixed signal digital design team.

      The task of the master thesis will be to:

      • Explore existing processor architectures based on open ISA like RISC-V and Open RISC.
      • Find ways to improve existing test validation procedures of mixed signal IPs.
      • Define requirements for processor to integrate on mixed signal test-chips.
      • Implement prototype on FPGA platform.

      Start: immediately
      Employment: Full-time

      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 1.825,-- gross p.m.(full-time basis).


      You are a student at university of applied sciences in the area Electrical Engineering or comparable and you are best equipped for this task if are a proactive person and you have:

      • Knowledge of processor architectures
      • Knowledge of tools/modelling languages (C/C++, VHDL or Verilog, Tcl)
      • Experience with FPGA devices.
      • Experience using lab equipment.

      Please attach the following documents to your application:

      • Your CV
      • Your motivation letter
      • Certificate of matriculation at a university
      • Latest study transcript
      • Bachelor Certificate
      • Final Matura certificate
