Project Description

"Linters", in computer science, refers to static code analysis tools used to flag programming errors, bugs, stylistic errors and suspicious constructs. As such, they are an invaluable component of a modern development toolchain, and of particular importance for hardware description languages (HDLs), where entire classes of hard-to-simulate bugs can be squashed early.

Melexis current digital design flow uses a traditional linter from Cadence, named HAL. The target of this internship is to replace it by a smarter one based on a formal verification engine, Jasper. You will have to develop Python, Makefile and TCL scripts to seamlessly integrate the new tool into our development toolchain and configure it to our specific needs.

During this internship you will have the opportunity to gather knowledge on formal proof tools, Python and TCL.


Expected results

  • An integration in our digital flow of this new tool and a successful daily regression result.

Your profile

  • Master 1
  • Basic knowledge of VHDL and/or Verilog
  • Basic programming knowledge (Python typically)

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.
