Hardware Development Intern
MAY '12 – SEPTEMBER '12
At Infinera, my goal was to further optimize and automate testing of PICs (photonics integrated chips). I was responsible for thoroughly understanding the subcircuits of the PIC to test, generating the testing protocol, writing high-level interface software for photonics lab equipment, placing the results in a database, and analyzing the results.
- Developed software drivers for bench lab equipment to automate testing
- Implemented optical module test suite with custom drivers
- Worked with PIC-level optical components for the testing framework
- Performed statistical analysis on test results to tune accuracy improvements with feedback
