AdaCore: Helping Developers Build Software that Matters

Everything we do at AdaCore is centered around helping developers build safe, secure and reliable software.

For over 25 years, we've worked with global leaders across the military and civil avionics, defense systems, air traffic management/control, space, railway, and financial services industries, building tools and providing services that ease the complex and difficult process of developing high-integrity software. As the need for truly secure and reliable applications expands into industries such as automotive, medical, energy, and IOT, we’re advancing our time-tested technologies to bring expertise and services to help a whole new generation of developers. Through our subscription-based business model and dedicated services arm, we have worked with hundreds of customers over the year on thousands of projects.

Our 120 experts worldwide in the US (New York, Lexington), France (Paris, Toulouse, Grenoble and Vannes), the UK, and Estonia, all play a role in developing state-of-the-art technologies to meet the challenges of building the highest grade of software.

Joining AdaCore is about joining a culture of innovation, openness, collaboration and dependability, which defines how we work together, with our customers and partners.

Support for fixed-point data types in QGen



Fixed-point operations are faster (compared to floating-point operations) and more predictable (their results do not depend on the underlying hardware, and their resolution is constant).

The goal of this internship is to extend the existing capabilities of QGen (automatic code generator from Simulink/Stateflow) to support fixed-point data types. The code generation strategy will need to be adapted, and the appropriate run-time support (libraries used by the embedded generated code) will need to be added.



  • Define and discuss the design

  • Implement and test the chosen solution, and integrate it within the product

    • Code generation

    • Run-time libraries


Skills required or Nice to have:

  • Familiarity with one high-level object-oriented programming language (Ada, C++, Java)

  • As a bonus, familiarity with Simulink/Stateflow

  • Ability to learn quickly about new development practices



Timeframe and location:

  • Time scale flexible, ideally in 2022

  • Duration somewhat flexible, ideally 6 months

  • Location: Paris (France), Tallinn (Estonia)
