Internship experience at Texas Instruments: the internship report
MetadataShow full item record
This report presents a survey of the author's internship experience with Texas Instruments from November 1980 to November 1981. The internship was spent in the Advanced Research and Development Division of the Digital Systems Group. The report's intent is to demonstrate that this experience fulfulls the requirements of the Doctor of Engineering internship. The author's internship activities involved the design of a special purpose processor. The internship was divided into two parts during which different versions of the processor were developed. The first design was of a slow processor which was to be simple to build and debug. The second design was a high performance, and therefore complex, processor. Several areas of expertise were gained during the internship including simulation, caching techniques and pipelining. Communication skills were developed because of the interaction with software designers.
