The Smart Sensors and Display Division Validation Team Internship is an opportunity to develop your software and testing skills by performing day-to-day characterizations on newly arrived chips. You will identify some aspect of those systems and tools to improve and deliver that improvement. You will use classroom knowledge and project experience, working with other engineers to apply current best practices of software development among a group mainly trained in electrical and signal processing disciplines. Your knowledge of signals and systems will also be valuable as you communicate test results and discuss improvements of analog and mixed-signal ASICs with designers. Our internship is designed for individuals who are currently enrolled at an accredited college/university and who will be continuing their studies in the fall.
