PhD position (m/f/d) in the field of high-speed ADC and DAC integrated circuits
As a member of the research group «Converters and High-Speed Logic Circuits» within the Circuit Design department you will contribute to research in analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, targeting the signal conversion bandwidth in a range of tens of GHz. Your tasks will include architecture analysis, IC design, as well as testing of A/D and D/A converters at sampling frequencies of 100 GSps and above. Within the doctorate with the working title «Development of the A/D and D/A interfaces for sub-THz transceivers», it is intended to explore the accuracy and bandwidth limitations of high-speed A/D and D/A converters. Moreover, the research work focuses on ways of how to overcome these limitations and includes IC manufacturing and characterization.
You are holding a Master's degree in electrical engineering or a comparable study area. You have a strong background in analog/HF IC design. You are already experienced in modeling and EDA tools (Matlab, IC development software, etc.). We expect a good knowledge of A/D and D/A converters' architectures and their key parameters. Ideally, but not mandatory, you have experience in performing measurements, in designing of high frequency (>10 GHz) integrated circuits and in simulation of mixed-signal designs. You are also a strong team player. We are looking for a team member, who is able to structure his or her own work and to bring a well-organized and systematic way of working into the cooperation with creative minds. You are an ideal match for this position, when you have experimental, analytical and problem-solving skills, very strong communicative skills and the ability to quickly learn how to operate the latest technical equipment including various EDA software. It is necessary that you confidently handle the English language. Knowledge of the German language is welcome. The deepening of German language skills is expected and highly encouraged, for example in in-house language courses and intensive courses.
