If you are establishing your career as scientist and you are looking for the best possible foundation for fulfilling your dreams and ambitions, it is right here in front of you. At DTU Electro you will break new ground at the absolute forefront of what is possible within IC design.

Responsibilities and qualifications
The primary focus of this research project is to investigate, develop, and demonstrate that timebased control implemented in an integrated circuit can outperform both conventional analog and digital control in specific applications verified on actual silicon to demonstrate the feasibility of the timebased control techniques. The project will include circuit modelling & IC design, tape-outs, and building & testing of prototype integrated circuits.

Any candidate who:

  • has good grasps of analysis and synthesis of all kinds of switched capacitor power converter topologies
  • has experience in analog IC design, specifically in high-voltage design
  • has experience working on IC tape-outs
  • has solid experience in using Cadence Virtuoso (or equivalent EDA) tools
  • has experience in using PCB layout software
  • has experience with behavioural modelling of electronics systems
  • is familiar with simulation and scripting tools (LTspice, Matlab, Python etc.)
  • has good control and signal processing skills
  • has good experience in making laboratory prototypes, debugging, and testing integrated circuits and electronic circuits
  • is open-minded and teamwork oriented to strive for common ambitious goals
  • can communicate in English at a good level

will be considered as a candidate with favourable background.  The candidate with high self-motivation, enthusiasm, and eagerness to push the boundaries for state-of-the-art would be preferred.
