Internship_Digital Fault Simulation_3 to 5 months - Bevaix, Switzerland





Your future job

The safety level required by automotive manufacturers on smart sensors implies building a full self-testing capability within the integrated circuit. The self-testing mechanisms shall cover most of the random fault occurring in the digital part. As an intern at Melexis, you will manage a digital fault simulation campaign on a microcontroller-based circuit.
More specifically, you will:

  • Define the fault injection strategy for the Melexis position sensors.

  • Implement the simulation-bench, build models, specify faults, run simulations, and process the results.

  • Automatize and run fault simulations using a state-of-the-art tool and flow.

  • (Propose, implement and test possible new safety mechanisms aiming at improving the fault coverage).

Expected results

  • A documented methodology and flow, based on ISO-26262 requirements and on Synopsys Zoix tool
  • A documented specification of the transient and permanent fault simulation
  • An automatized bench for the Melexis sensor simulation using the Synopsys Zoix tool on Linux
  • A simulation report containing coverage figures and diagnostics ranking
  • A documented proposal for fault coverage optimization (optional)

Your profile

  • Knowledge of micro-processor or micro-controller architecture

  • Knowledge of digital design

  • Knowledge of Linux, Verilog and Python

We offer

  • A challenging internship in a dynamic high-tech international environment

  • An enjoyable, team-oriented  and professional  atmosphere in a flat-structured organization
