Engineering degree from Grenoble INP – PHELMA - Integrated Electronic Systems, option Systems on Chip.
After two years of studying in a preparatory class, I joined Phelma, the engineering school where we can study physics, electronics and materials. I chose an electronics specialty the second year (after bachelor degree) and started to study electronic analog and numeric. Then - the 3rd and last year - I chose to specialize myself in SoC.
How did you join PLDA?
I met PLDA at my school forum. Internships presented were really interesting. I came to Aix-en-Provence (PLDA Headquarter) to be interviewed. After 6 months as an intern I signed a permanent contract to work as a fully hardware designer engineer.
What is your current job focus?
In the hardware designer team of PLDA we are in charge of IPs development, responsible for the architecture, and we make sure that product has the expected behavior in terms of running, competitive throughputs and latency. We also manage the applicative side of our product: provide an environment to customers in order to highlight IPs features. I started to work on an innovative engine that manages big parallel data transfers between devices: vDMA. Then I joined a new team named Advanced Design & Integration (still as a designer) to implement custom features around our IPs for our customers: this allows us to be agile and flexible on the IP market.
What do you like about working for PLDA?
PLDA offers a way to have a big technical ramp up for junior engineers thanks to its electronics experts. As a hardware designer, I can see the entire conception flow of a hardware IP that gives me the full vision of the integration in a system.The office environment allows me to work in a team and always have interactions with other engineers to open my mind and debrief.
