Job Description


Exploring Complete CV/ML Vision Pipelines on Xilinx Devices


Xilinx Research Labs continuously explores new FPGA architectures and environments to address the future processing needs of several application domains. The heterogeneity of Xilinx' devices make them uniquely suited to accelerate the whole application. In this context, we are currently exploring novel combinations of machine learning algorithms and more traditional video or CV algorithms and we are evaluating design approaches to maximize the implementation efficiency of these hybrid solutions.


For this R&D activity, we are offering an intern job position focusing on the mapping these advanced image/vision processing and machine learning components on current FPGA devices using current or prototype tools and libraries.


Responsibilities include: identifying novel combinations of traditional signal processing and machine learning, training these hybrid solutions. Alternatively, for a more traditional video/processing and machine learning pipeline, identify implementation limitations and propose generic solutions to improve the applicability and usability of Xilinx devices and tools for image/vision processing and machine learning. Further, the position includes early prototyping, participating at group meetings and providing technical progress overviews through reports or presentations.

Internship Goals:

  • Contribute to machine learning and computer vision or video integration: propose and train unique pipelines
  • Propose new hardware feature requests for future Xilinx devices based on a focused application analysis
  • Map working prototypes of whole vision pipelines on current Xilinx devices or simulate on future architectures.

At Xilinx, we are leading the industry transformation to build an adaptable, intelligent world. ARE YOU bold, collaborative, and creative? At Xilinx, we hire and develop leaders and innovators who want to revolutionize the world of technology. We believe that by embracing diverse ideas, pushing boundaries, and working together as ONEXILINX, anything is possible.

Our culture of innovation began with the invention of the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), and with the 2018 introduction of our Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP), has made a quantum leap in capability, solidifying our role as the adaptable platform supplier of choice. From the start, we have always believed in providing inventors with products and platforms that are infinitely adaptable. From self-driving cars, to world-record genome processing, to AI and big data, to the world's first 5G networks, we empower the world's builders and visionaries whose ideas solve every day problems and enhance people's lives.

If you are PASSIONATE, ADAPTABLE, and INNOVATIVE, Xilinx is the right place for you! At Xilinx we care deeply about creating meaningful development experiences while building a strong sense of belonging and connection. We foster an environment of empowered learning, wellness, community engagement, and recognition, so you can focus on work that matters - world class technology that improves the way we live and work. We are ONEXILINX.


  • Exceptional MSc / PhD student in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science/Engineering.
  • Hands-on experience with C/C++, Python programming is a plus.
  • Basic computer architecture understanding.
  • Video/OpenCV and/or machine learning experience.
  • Good communication, teamwork & problem solving skills.
