Hardware at Arm
You know us. With 125 Arm-powered products shipped every second, we'll be in a over a trillion smart devices by 2035. Your smartphone, award-winning VR gaming, the world's fastest supercomputer – our engineers are designing the advanced core processors leading the race towards a connected, autonomous, hyper-performance future.
So, we promise you endless opportunities to experiment and go even further in hardware. From advanced core implementation to full custom physical IPs, here you'll have our backing to push limits in vital areas such as memory, IO and logic.
The Arm Sweden office develops the Mali Graphics Processor (GPU) and the Ethos Neural Processor (NPU).
The open role is as an intern in the GPU architecture team. The team takes a medium-long term view of the GPU development, finding and prioritizing new techniques to improve the feature-set, performance and area of the Mali GPU.
The team is spread across the Arm sites in Lund, Trondheim (Norway), Cambridge (UK), Austin and San Francisco (USA)
A general goal of a GPU is to minimize the time it takes to draw graphical images. This way the frame rate of running games or applications can be improved, which leads to a better experience for the end-user. The work of rendering one frame can be split into a large number of smaller tasks, that are each running simultaneously. The way these smaller tasks are scheduled has an impact on how efficiently the available hardware resources can be used.
The task for this intern role is to find scheduling heuristics that ultimately improve GPU rendering performance. The work is done by looking for metrics that can guide a scheduling control algorithm to make better decisions and to test and evaluate such algorithms.
