Internship position in a team which works in validating designs in flagship phones, tablets, PCs and even cars include human interface devices which use Synaptics’ touch sensing controllers.
These touch controllers are ASICs which comprise a custom microcontroller and specialized analog blocks for sensing tiny changes in capacitance.
An intern in the validation team will work with the bench test staff to analyse and characterize new ASICs prior to the market release of the ASICs.
The intern will collect measurements using electronic lab instrumentation, collate results and help in the interpretation of results.
Work will also require the development of an oscilloscope multiplexing board and associated automation scripts. Tests may check for logical operation, parametric performance, noise effects and even assess the points at which hardware can fail or be damaged.
Electrical, electronic or related field of study. Working towards a bachelors’ or higher level degree.
Good communications skills
