a a good afternoon i'm said after a recent graduate of your file from electrical engineering
department and i'd like to share my experience uh of master project in industry
so i can just what's um for master's degree in electrical engineering one of many reasons uh why i to
the p. of all the strong collaboration with industry and the possibly can muster project in in a company
and so i have done my master thesis that i'm a microchip technology
get calibration interface c. research group led by professor kathleen bell
most cases that was designed for sorry d. c. competitive with lots of compensation
let me quickly defined abbreviations in the title n. a. d. c. is an analogue to
digital converter uh which represents a signalling down all the main by ones and zeros
a sexist approximation or just a d. c. is a particular type of the same on many
it's simply works is that algorithm based on the comparisons it make it makes
uh between the input signal and recognisable to slow it gradually come
or just to the digital presentation off to another country
the offset is the variations like less devices uh due to
imperfections coming into play play during the production phase
so in the design phase he is human that you have two identical transistors but
when they come back from the funding to resemble read that that is
so a comparator i'm sorry so i compared with offset compensation is basically a compared to with the
memory to measure store and cancel diesel uh these imperfections and press r. a. b. c.
she she necessary solution speed uh we implement such a competitor
uh the project the topic of the project was already determined by micro chip within
the development process we um benefited from regular meetings that professor there huh
these were checkpoints or oh um progression with respect to timing um
um was just a document unexplained of this the choices made and verify the decisions taken with the professor
in summary the basic uh steps of fantasy designer squabbles for designer at the end of the project
i was able to draw the layout of physically implement the design which covers the big a big portion
of the i. c. design cycle and a very valuable experience to have the other new college grad
so at the end of the project i could demonstrate with some lessons that the compared
to us meeting all this does that subscriptions of course because all possible operating conditions
and what is now is um in a sorry this product that
i'm still working on as an analogue designer at microchip
and by this project i was able to work i i was able to show deficiency of them
one of the product so what it's going to be used in addition product in my crotch
so i'll i made this table to make a summary of what i learned during this internship here already you like to eat
to have a affected capability to learn on our own every that they're tickle basis of um
for maximum professes several projects uh to get an inside of the development tools and equipment
and for me at the end of the project i did also to stronger justification skills as
many times need to convince others of your decisions better sensation off of physical phenomena
uh strongest common sense for design and teamwork and also
very uh ever get financial understanding of the product
so if i was to go back to the time where i was looking for master project i would try to
benefit that maxim all these opportunities that it gets police providing for us
i would make numerous applications uh and interviews because this is the right moment to get feeling comfortable with uh in two years
and it's less critical get together you know from from for an internship enter job
i would keep in mind um that there's more to come then that's already done so as
not to be stuck on your transcript and going find the thing that's that interests you
um i would remind myself all the strengths and all that motivation we have to keep improving
and as a former student i would be less worried about the work permit process because
it's pretty straightforward if you're if you show that you're building to to work hard
