Internship: Analog/mixed-signal design challenge in automotive
Automotive is one of the core markets for NXP. Our high performance mixed signal technologies for Automotive applications create new ways to make cars cleaner, safer, more comfortable, and more fun. Our industry-leading in-vehicle network and sensor systems save fuel and step-up reliability and dynamics, while our RF keyless entry/go and connected key solutions add convenience and security. We consistently deliver audio and connectivity solutions that rival the best in home entertainment. Our focused R&D investments, our competencies in RF, Analog, and Digital Processing, and our relentless commitment to quality and excellence make us a long-term partner in automotive. NXP’s technology expertise enables delivery of innovative, easy-to-implement solutions that are tailored to our customers’ needs.
One of the mega trends is the evolution towards self-driving cars. Product Line In-Vehicle Networking is enabling this by bringing high-speed, CAN, LIN, Flexray and Ethernet-based data communication into the cars.
Do you like to work on an internship or thesis related to the next generation In-Vehicle Networking products, in a demanding market with extreme high standards for quality? Are you a trouble shooter, have a hands-on mentality and are eager to find any issue in a new design before it gets at our customers?
For our Product Line in Vehicle Networking in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, we are looking for an Analog/Mixed-Signal Design Intern.
As designer in the design team, you will participate in translating requirements for modules and/or products into a mixed signal circuit design topology and implementation for In-Vehicle Networking transceivers, supporting CAN, LIN and 10BaseT1S bus systems.
You will work on a mixed signal circuit task that is specific for transceiver products. These products are developed in high voltage Bipolar/CMOS/DMOS -SOI processes and should meet very strict automotive requirements on EMC, very low power design and lifetime profiles at extreme temperatures.
You will work in a cross-functional project team and will be coached in working in (scrum-)teams, collaborating in a common design environment and adopting all principles for maturing circuit design for zero-defects.
