NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope helped an international team of astronomers find that an unusual object in the asteroid belt is, in fact, two asteroids orbiting each other that have comet-like features. These include a bright halo of material, called a coma, and a long tail of dust. Hubble was used to image the asteroid, designated 300163 (2006 VW139), in September 2016 just before the asteroid made its closest approach to the Sun. Hubble’s crisp images revealed that it was actual...

In the first act of lunar exploration, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were major characters. In setting its sights on the Moon, ESA hopes to bring many more actors to this off-world stage. By testing the market for transport services to the Moon, ESA aims to push the limits of technology and create new models of space business. Touching down on the Moon was a monumental moment in human history. Eight short years and enormous resources took humankind to the lunar surface, initially for le...

Astronomers have used ALMA to capture a strikingly beautiful view of a delicate bubble of expelled material around the exotic red star U Antliae. These observations will help astronomers to better understand how stars evolve during the later stages of their life-cycles. In the faint southern constellation of Antlia (The Air Pump) the careful observer with binoculars will spot a very red star, which varies slightly in brightness from week to week. This very unusual star is called U Antliae and...

The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

    Description
    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.
