a a good afternoon i'm said after a recent graduate of your file from electrical engineering
00:00:08
department and i'd like to share my experience uh of master project in industry
00:00:14
so i can just what's um for master's degree in electrical engineering one of many reasons uh why i to
00:00:19
the p. of all the strong collaboration with industry and the possibly can muster project in in a company
00:00:27
and so i have done my master thesis that i'm a microchip technology
00:00:30
get calibration interface c. research group led by professor kathleen bell
00:00:37
most cases that was designed for sorry d. c. competitive with lots of compensation
00:00:44
yeah
00:00:49
let me quickly defined abbreviations in the title n. a. d. c. is an analogue to
00:00:53
digital converter uh which represents a signalling down all the main by ones and zeros
00:00:59
a sexist approximation or just a d. c. is a particular type of the same on many
00:01:03
it's simply works is that algorithm based on the comparisons it make it makes
00:01:08
uh between the input signal and recognisable to slow it gradually come
00:01:12
or just to the digital presentation off to another country
00:01:17
the offset is the variations like less devices uh due to
00:01:22
imperfections coming into play play during the production phase
00:01:26
so in the design phase he is human that you have two identical transistors but
00:01:30
when they come back from the funding to resemble read that that is
00:01:36
so a comparator i'm sorry so i compared with offset compensation is basically a compared to with the
00:01:42
memory to measure store and cancel diesel uh these imperfections and press r. a. b. c.
00:01:49
she she necessary solution speed uh we implement such a competitor
00:01:54
uh the project the topic of the project was already determined by micro chip within
00:01:59
the development process we um benefited from regular meetings that professor there huh
00:02:04
these were checkpoints or oh um progression with respect to timing um
00:02:09
um was just a document unexplained of this the choices made and verify the decisions taken with the professor
00:02:16
in summary the basic uh steps of fantasy designer squabbles for designer at the end of the project
00:02:22
i was able to draw the layout of physically implement the design which covers the big a big portion
00:02:28
of the i. c. design cycle and a very valuable experience to have the other new college grad
00:02:38
so at the end of the project i could demonstrate with some lessons that the compared
00:02:43
to us meeting all this does that subscriptions of course because all possible operating conditions
00:02:49
and what is now is um in a sorry this product that
00:02:52
i'm still working on as an analogue designer at microchip
00:02:55
and by this project i was able to work i i was able to show deficiency of them
00:03:02
one of the product so what it's going to be used in addition product in my crotch
00:03:09
so i'll i made this table to make a summary of what i learned during this internship here already you like to eat
00:03:16
to have a affected capability to learn on our own every that they're tickle basis of um
00:03:23
for maximum professes several projects uh to get an inside of the development tools and equipment
00:03:29
and for me at the end of the project i did also to stronger justification skills as
00:03:34
many times need to convince others of your decisions better sensation off of physical phenomena
00:03:40
uh strongest common sense for design and teamwork and also
00:03:45
very uh ever get financial understanding of the product
00:03:51
so if i was to go back to the time where i was looking for master project i would try to
00:03:55
benefit that maxim all these opportunities that it gets police providing for us
00:04:00
i would make numerous applications uh and interviews because this is the right moment to get feeling comfortable with uh in two years
00:04:07
and it's less critical get together you know from from for an internship enter job
00:04:12
i would keep in mind um that there's more to come then that's already done so as
00:04:16
not to be stuck on your transcript and going find the thing that's that interests you
00:04:21
um i would remind myself all the strengths and all that motivation we have to keep improving
00:04:29
and as a former student i would be less worried about the work permit process because
00:04:32
it's pretty straightforward if you're if you show that you're building to to work hard
