      Job description

      The dc-dc converter currently employed to generate the main digital supply of the Infineon automotive microcontroller family is based on an advanced digital regulation loop. One of the main advantages of a digital loop compared to a conventional analog loop is the programmability and flexibility. This enables the use of different external passive components (L and C), depending on which the controller must be configured.

      Digital auto-tuning is the ability to automatically tune the controller parameters in response to the actual system dynamics.

      The main goal of this project is to research suitable identification and tuning algorithms for the automotive microcontroller digital regulator. One of the algorithms will then be implemented and verified using a prototyping setup on an FPGA.
