Our people are and make the difference. Melexis creates a framework for colleagues to grow, thrive and create impact for themselves, the customer and the company. Because we care, we empower and we excel. We believe in the power of diversity. Spread over 3 continents, 1900 colleagues from 50 nationalities shape the best imaginable future.

Project Description

The target of this internship is to evaluate the effect of different cache architectures for "typical Melexis software" on a RISC-V CPU. You will have to create an exhaustive list of cache architectures, evaluate their performance, advantages and disadvantages, code the best ones in a parameterizable way in SystemVerilog and measure their respective performances by simulating the full CPU running some of our BLDC motor control algorithms.

During this internship you will have the opportunity to gather knowledge on CPU and cache architecture, use GCC and Cadence tools for linting and simulation.


Expected results

  • A comparative list of architectures with their silicon area, maximum operating frequency and software performance improvement.

Your profile

  • Master 2
  • Basic knowledge of CPU architectures

  • Basic knowledge of VHDL and/or Verilog

We offer

Joining Melexis for your internship is the opportunity to build up your know-how in a high-tech, international and dynamic company, benefit from the experience and training of our experts and enjoy the welcoming and friendly atmosphere of our Paris office team which is specialized in Digital Design and counts 20 employees.
