Are you a bachelor or master student with a background in Electrical Engineering? Do you have knowledge in writing FPGA code and Linux? Are you driven to produce a solution with high-quality standards? Then this internship might be interesting for you!

Background information

The Embedded Logic & Firmware (ELF) community develops digital designs for the ASML highest-resolution lithography systems. The purpose of the assignment is to develop diagnostics, debug and a verification environment to existing Actuator/Sensor IO-Boards with high-end FPGAs.

Your assignment

For this assignment, you will:

  • identify the best possible universal diagnostics and debugging capabilities for a digital design on a high-end FPGA i.c.w. ASML digital design flow;
  • define requirements of the best possible universal diagnostics of a digital design in a high-end FPGA, for universal ASML IO-boards;
  • implement a diagnostics dashboard for universal ASML actuator and sensor boards;
  • design a digital design for re-use, including Design-In-Guide;

Your profile

To be the perfect match for this internship, you:

  • are a student with a background in Electrical Engineering;
  • have knowledge in developing FPGA code (VHDL) and Linux;
  • have experience in SoC FPGA's and in programming an embedded system in C/C++ and MatLab/Simulink;
  • have good analytical skills;
  • have great communication skills in English, both written and verbal.

This is an apprentice internship for bachelor or master students, with a minimum duration of 4 months, 4 days per week, starting in January 2023.

Please note that we may only consider applicants who are enrolled as a student to a university for the whole duration of the internship.

Change the world – one nanometer at a time
Become an intern at a Dutch company that’s a global industry leader. You’ll gain valuable experience in a highly innovative environment – one that sparks your imagination and creativity. In addition to a monthly internship allowance of maximum €600 (plus a possible housing and/or travel allowance), you’ll get practical guidance from experts in the field and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic team environment.

ASML: be part of progress
ASML is a high-tech company headquartered in the Netherlands. We manufacture the complex lithography machines that chipmakers use to produce integrated circuits, or computer chips. What we do is at the heart of all the electronic devices that keep us informed, entertained and connected. Every day, you use electronics that simply wouldn’t exist without our machines.

Behind ASML’s innovations are engineers who think ahead. The people who work at our company include some of the most creative minds in physics, electrical engineering, mathematics, chemistry, mechatronics, optics, mechanical engineering, and computer science and software engineering.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.

Students: getting ready for real-world R&D
We’re a global team of about 29,000 people of 120 different nationalities and counting. Headquartered in Europe’s top tech hub, the Brainport Eindhoven region in the Netherlands, our operations are spread across Europe, Asia and the US.

In such an environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country – or even working for a different company.

An internship at ASML is the opportunity to get to know not only the world of industrial-strength R&D, but yourself – you’ll discover just what excites you most. Will you design a part of the machine, or make sure it gets built to the tightest possible specifications? Will you write software that drives the system to its best performance, or work side-by-side with the engineers of our customers in a fab, optimizing a system to the requirements of the customer?

How will you be part of progress?
