The industrial doctorate at Infineon: Pursue a doctoral degree at a university and gain professional experience simultaneously - an ideal start for your career. Advance your research with us and profit from our vast network of doctoral candidates and the expertise of a university. Mentorship is handled by both professors and dedicated Infineon employees. We are offering a doctoral thesis dealing with Generic Code, which is a widely used method to make a given piece of code more widely usable. Examples are macros and conditional code in languages as C or generics and generate statements in HDLs like SystemVerilog or VHDL. As these methods make only parts of a code visible, they are also sometimes called self-generating methods. Since the possibilities of self-generation are limited, code generators come more and more in focus. By completely building a code, code generators overcome most the limitations of self-generating approaches. Code generators however have the disadvantage that even a small change requires a re-generation of the complete design. To get best of both approaches, this PhD Thesis targets the generation of generic code. We offer: • Realistic, challenging, and impactful problems • The possibility of putting problems into an overall context • Collaboration with colleagues and teams that is seldom found anywhere in the world in terms of depth and breadth • A potential 3 months research stays at top universities worldwide and/or Europe wide cooperation of experts as part of funded research activities • An Infineon internal PhD community The thesis will be written in cooperation with Technical University Munich and under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Ecker.
The tasks within the thesis will consist of:

This doctoral thesis should also study existing approaches and prove the applicability and get feedback to enhance the methodology.

The learnings out of the thesis will be:
A doctoral student is a research enthusiast,
› …whose interests are scientific research combined with the passion for Infineon’s innovative products and applications.
› …who enjoys working in an industrial environment in combination with an Infineon partner university.
› …who appreciates open communication and the contribution of an international environment.
› …and is thus an excellent candidate for a further academic or industrial career after completion of their thesis.

As the ideal candidate you:
