“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

Your role as graduate student 

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 subjects we have in mind, but we are also open for your suggestions and can customize them to a suitable assignment. 

About the assignment 

For the realization of a video-wall application, driven by 16 1080p60 or 4Kp60 video streams, TOPIC will be using an AMD Ultrascale+ System-on-Chip on a standard board configuration. This board configuration exists of a Miami MPSOC Plus System-on-Module and a Florida Plus carrier board. In order for this board configuration to drive multiple screens simultaneously, an FMC daughter board must be developed. The video interface is not yet determined but this could be a DisplayPort, USB-C, HDMI or DVI. Full functionality requires multiple boards to work together, which requires high speed interfaces between them. In addition to video output, video sources must also be applied. This means that the FMC display board has miscellaneous requirements in terms of interfaces. 

The assignment is to develop the FMC board. The board will contain all the physical interfaces and connectors that are needed to facilitate the display requirements at hand. You need to gather all system requirements that apply to the board; design the schematics, create a layout that meets the physical requirements of FMC modules and work-out a power solution for the board.  

The layout will contain high-frequency signals, needing signal- and power integrity design approaches/simulations to validate the layout before production. After assembly, you need to verify the correctness of the board. A test solution to validate the board design is part of the assignment. All required materials and tooling will be provided by TOPIC as part of the project, as well as the subcontracting of the assembly of the board. 

As a graduate student at TOPIC 

  • You are graduating from University or HBO in Electronics, (applied) Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Embedded Systems, Physics, Mathematics or similar field; 
  • You are pro-active, able to think outside the box, a problem solver and are capable of communicating with and retrieving information from different stakeholders;
  • You have the ability to self-steer, a drive to deliver but also like to have fun while reaching your goals! 

Our organisation  

TOPIC is committed every day to make the world a little better, smarter and healthier. For 27 years, customers have been trusting on TOPIC for the development of embedded systems that are essential for products manufactured by renowned high-tech companies around the world.  We are well known for the knowledge and expertise of our highly skilled engineers. We are able to maintain this by continuously investing in the development of our engineers: internal and external training courses with certifications, personalized meetups and knowledge sharing are part of this. 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. 

Our In-house projects (from design and development to production and market introduction) are carried out by our engineers at the TOPIC head office. TOPIC also offers Farm Out projects: a unique service in which a TOPIC team of engineers is engaged for a specific development project of a customer. Consultancy Services add expertise to a team on-site at our clients or offer them advice on a solution to an existing problem, a strategy or a process.  Our range of TOPIC Products consist of high-quality System-on-Modules that aim to accelerate product development and are scalable in performance and functionality.
