“Graduating at TOPIC has been a very fun and educational experience for me. The complex challenges I have encountered during my graduation internship have provided me with lots of great technical and non-technical experience that I will forever take with me during my career.”
Mike Huisman | Hardware Engineer at TOPIC
TOPIC develops embedded systems that are essential for products manufactured by renowned high-tech companies around the world. Our projects involve edge to cloud solutions; from PCB design and FPGA to low level embedded software and application software for UI, Web, Mobile and cloud. We like to apply innovative technologies such as object tracking, Ultra-Wideband, Lidar, generating/rendering 2D to 3D medical images and Photonics.
As a graduate student at TOPIC you will have the opportunity to work on innovative R&D subjects that will bring value to our organization. There are always assignments we have in mind, but we are also open for your suggestions and can customize them to a suitable assignment.
TOPIC is specialized in high-end embedded applications using the latest technologies, such as the AMD Zynq 700 and Zynq Ultrascale+ system-on-chips. One of the areas of our expertise is video processing. Many applications rely on low-latency, high resolution (1080p60 or 4Kp60) video processing which need FPGA implementations.
However, there is always a strong need for software in the processing path:
The basic functionality is available, but the software video processing architecture needs to be validated and applicable packages and libraries need to be selected. Evaluation of the right software stacks are part of the assignment.
Typically, our embedded platforms runs on Linux on top of ARM Cortex A9, A53 or A72 processors. Also, NEON SIMD and MALI GPU accelerators are available. At this moment, TOPIC has a collection of video processing available for the FPGA. We have to design and implement a number of functions and features on the processors to give the video wall it’s proper dynamic behavior.
Some functions are:
The aim of the project is to utilize the features of the Zynq 7000 or Zynq Ultrascale+ platform for video processing purposes. The graduation project will cover a part of the functionality as described above. The subset of functionality needs to be specified in the form of requirements and in the end the implementation must demonstrate the requirements according to a test plan. The software must be developed according to the software development methodology of TOPIC, including proper version control and CICT.
TOPIC is committed to make the world a little better healthier and smarter every day. Not only for our customers but also for the members of our TOPIC family for whom passion for technical innovation is key!
