We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and do not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, status as a veteran, and basis of disability or any other federal, state or local protected class.

Job Description

Are you creative, innovative, and passionate about new technologies?

Would you like to help us continue deploying billions of successful devices around the world, many of them enabling safety critical environments such as automotive or robotics?

We are looking for outstanding undergraduates to join our STL (Software Test Library) development team within our CPU group in Cambridge, UK.

STL is a fundamental piece of the development strategy for sectors with strong safety requirements like automotive, health or robotics.

They execute opportunistically when the hardware is not fully utilized and perform continuous in-depth hardware diagnostics while the system is in operation.

It identifies and notifies about functional misbehaviors derived from permanent faults triggered by natural hardware wear-

out, or other uncontrollable factors before they may translate into catastrophic system failures with undesirable and even dangerous consequences.

If you are passionate about understanding the interaction between hardware and software, have used some HDL language (Verilog or VHDL) and can program on assembly and / or C, this could be an excellent opportunity for an internship.

We work on a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary environment that will motivate you to further improve your skills and also contribute and get deep knowledge on Arm CPU designs and development processes.

Engineers with large experience in the area will coach you and help you navigate and learn the complexities of the CPU internals and the mechanisms to meet expectations on safety from emerging markets.

We are an equal opportunity employer with an open culture and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Role Responsibilities

As undergraduate, you will become part of a highly motivated team that develops the STLs for Arm CPUs.

You will have real responsibilities from day one where you will learn and succeed with the support and guidance from experts in the field.

Through teamwork, training, and dedication to personal development, your internship will comprise interesting technical challenges that will help you understand what we do and how we do it.

As a member of the team you will contribute to a number of the following areas :

  • We will define the STL design specifications, verification plan and the safety documents as per ISO26262 and IEC61508.
  • We will build diagnostic software to target CPU sub-units like ALU, pre-fetchers, branch predictors, cache controllers, memory systems, etc.
  • We will envision hardware design features aiming to improve STL effectiveness on ongoing and future CPU developments. We will also get along with the rest of the designers to implement them with minimum impact on area, performance and power.
  • We will prove that the software as well as the STL-specific hardware features meet the specifications and work properly on different CPU configurations.
  • We will generate the safety analysis of the STLs.
  • Job Requirements
