The mobile and wearable device sector is one of the most exciting sectors where the consumer electronics industry and the semiconductor industry are continuously delivering ground-breaking innovations. One of the recent trends is to enable a rich set of possibilities to continuously interface with the human-being. The feedback from devices to the human-being can be based on audio, haptic and many others. The input from the human-being to the devices can be based on voice, touch, movement and many others .Working together with other NXP colleagues at multiple international sites, the group in Leuven is actively contributing in this area, especially for audio, haptic and other mechanisms based on mechanical vibrations. The core of such human interfacing systems is signal processing.

We welcome enthusiastic students to work with us to make various fun prototypes based on signal processing systems. Importantly, in addition to your regular internship, you are warmly invited to do a thesis at NXP Leuven as well. Job opportunities and sponsored PhD opportunities may also be available after these projects.

Several of the following steps will be followed in these projects, depending on the student’s background and interest:

·       Literature research on the field of interest

·       Algorithm study

·       Matlab based concept prototyping based on real mobile and wearable devices

·       Hardware and software prototyping that lead possibly to commercial products

What we can offer for you:

·       Excellent international research and development environment

·       Very interesting technical projects that also have clear and strong commercial values

·       Easy access to most recent mobile devices and associated prototypes

·       Valuable skillset for the job market

We expect you to have several of the following skills and background:

·       Signal processing algorithms: signal transformation, detection, estimation and classification

·       Good Matlab and C programming skills  

·       Good understanding of basic physics

·       Good understanding of basic circuit components

·       Independent problem solving skills
