For the first time ever astronomers have studied an asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space. Observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object was traveling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. It appears to be a dark, reddish, highly-elongated rocky or high-metal-content object. The new results appear in the journal Nature on 20 November 2017. ...

Twice as big as Earth, the super-Earth 55 Cancri e was thought to have lava flows on its surface. The planet is so close to its star, the same side of the planet always faces the star, such that the planet has permanent day and night sides. Based on a 2016 study using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, scientists speculated that lava would flow freely in lakes on the starlit side and become hardened on the face of perpetual darkness. The lava on the dayside would reflect radiation from th...

Landing on Mars is difficult and not always successful. Well-designed advance testing helps. An ambitious NASA Mars rover mission set to launch in 2020 will rely on a special parachute to slow the spacecraft down as it enters the Martian atmosphere at over 12,000 mph (5.4 kilometers per second). Preparations for this mission have provided, for the first time, dramatic video of the parachute opening at supersonic speed. The Mars 2020 mission will seek signs of ancient Martian life by investiga...

A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years from the Solar System by a team using ESO's unique planet-hunting HARPS instrument. The new world has the designation Ross 128 b and is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b. It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Ross 128 b will be a prime target for ESO's Extremely ...

What seemed at first like a rare instance of a huge, ancient galaxy revealed itself to be an even rarer pair of extremely massive galaxies, seen on the brink of merging when the Universe was only a billion years old. This outstanding source was first identified by ESA's Herschel space observatory, and later exposed in greater detail with the ground-based Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. The earliest galaxies in the 13.8 billion-year history of our cosmos starte...

    Embedded Software Engineer in ST Microelectronics, site of Castelletto di Cornaredo (Milan area, Italy). My team is involved in the design, development and production of customized ASICs based on proprietary technology. These ASICs are targeted mainly toward industrial control, consumer electronics (smartphones, tablets), gaming (game consoles) and automotive (car radio). 
    Duties
    I am currently developing part of the firmware of a Car Radio. The firmware is built to run on a CortexR4 processor. A CortexM3 is embedded on the same System-on-Chip (SoC) to provide support for the power management. 
    Previously, I was in charge of the development of bootrom, drivers and auxiliary FWs for a new SoC based on the CortexA53 processor and designed for gaming market. In this context I’m the reference for USB driver and the audio firmware. I was also part of the team charged of the design and development of power management firmware. Audio and power control are both build to run on a CortexM4 service processors. 
    I started in ST three years ago joining the silicon validation team. Here I was in charge of the tests on ARM processors (CortexA9), interconnect, memories and commercial IPs (USB, Ethernet, …). 
    In my field of activity, I work frequently in laboratory and I’m familiar with the common lab instruments. I’m also able to read schematics and gerber files, to propose changes and to perform reworks on pcb. I use hardware and software emulators (Mentor Veloce, ARM and IPs TLM models), RTL simulation (VSIM, Mentor Questa simulator), debugging tools (Lauterbach, J-Link).

    Description
    I worked as Embedded Software engineer in Thales Alenia Space, site of Vimodrone (Milan area, Italy) in the ‘on-board computer and data handling’ division.
    Duties
    I had the responsibility of the low-level SW development process for satellite navigation computers in compliance to ECSS standards (SW criticality C and D). As specified, the activities ranged among the tasks of specification, design, implementation, integration, validation and documentation. 
    Some of the project in which I've been actively involved are here listed:
    - SWARM (ESA living planet programme). The site of Milan was in charge to develop the navigation and data-handling computers (prototypes and flight models) of the three satellites of SWARM program. My work was mainly related to the validation of low level SW and to the investigation on the HW issues arose during environmental and electrical test campaign. 
    - EXOMARS (ESA robotic exploration of mars). I was involved in the development of the early european Mars rover. I worked on specifications and design of low-level software of the navigation coprocessor module. 
    In the scope of EXOMARS program, I worked also on the navigation and data handling computer of the descent module. I was in charge of the specification, design and development of the basic software (bootstrap and low-level handlers) and I was in charge of part of the design of HW/SW layer of the FPGAs. 
    - EPICA NEXT. I was involved in the validation process for the new flight SoC based on Leon3 processor (Sparc v8). Specifically I had the responsibility of the validation of Spacewire and RMAP interfaces accordingly to ESA ECSS requirements.
    - TOPNET: study of the feasibility of the remote test of different parts of a satellite, to be done by means of SpaceWire busses emulated through intranet connections. This communication channel has been verified by the interconnection of three satellite units located respectively in Cannes, Toulouse and Milan. In the scope of this projects I developed the application SW of the unit located in Milan, implemented ‘bare-metal’ on a board equipped with an early EPICA NEXT prototype.
