Subject: Internship proposal
Geographical Location: Vilvoorde (suburbs of Brussels – Belgium)
Subject of the internship:
Development of embedded Linux multi-protocol device drivers, network user application and PC graphical user interface in
Labview to support the ON Semiconductor silicon bench testing in the DAA (Design Analysis Area).
Detailed description of the internship’s subject:
ON Semiconductor develops and produces ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) for customers or as standard
products. Each ASIC requires a dedicated Hardware/Software production test setup developed by a test engineer. The product
development team assists the test engineer in this task by performing equivalent tests as a correlation exercise in the DAA.
DAA is also the place where the different silicon versions are debugged until the product reaches the production maturity.
DAA tests also require a specific HW and SW setup for every ASIC. The trend today is to use a generic HW platform and to
develop specific SW for each ASIC. ONsemi has recently upgraded its HW platform to make it more flexible and powerful.
The goal of this internship is to develop SW routines for this new hardware platform. If particular protocols require a hardware
implementation, a part of the development may be done in HW as well.
The SW development will comprise:
1) Embedded drivers for:
- W2 (2-wire ON Semi proprietary interface)
2) Embedded application that interfaces between the TCP/IP stack and the different protocol drivers.
3) PC demonstrator software to exercise all protocols.
4) PC demonstrator software to exercise all protocols in Labview.
The trainee will be also introduced to the CAD tools used in the DAA lab for the development of ASIC specific software test and
A good technical background is required from the candidate. ONsemi will conduct a technical check prior to selection. Since at
least 8 different nationalities are represented among the engineering staff in our Vilvoorde design center, English is the
common language for all forms of communication. The candidate will have part of his/her interview conducted in English to
make sure he/she can communicate and attend meetings with the engineering staff members.
