IOC-24 PhD Scholarship in Analogue Mixed-Signal Design for Precision Circuits
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
Microelectronic Circuits Centre Ireland (MCCI) is an EI / IDA technology centre hosted at the Tyndall National Institute. Its mission is to carry out industry-led world-class Analog, Mixed-Signal and RF integrated circuit research and to deliver trained people and IP to industry. MCCI is already collaborating with 35 companies and many of the staff eventually transfer into the thriving microelectronics industry in Ireland. MCCI targets real-life applications with its research and currently has projects in diverse topics such as DNA detection for food safety, next generation optical communications, bio-sensing, imaging for security applications and early cancer detection.
As microelectronics chips are manufactured in ever smaller geometries the performance of Analogue and Mixed-Signal circuits degrade while at the same time digital logic becomes cheaper, smaller and lower power. Applications associated with the Internet of Things is placing multiple challenges on the Integrated Circuit Chips that are required to enable the next generation of IoT applications.
About Your Studies
As a Doctoral candidate you will be offered a 4-year scholarship, based in the Tyndall National Institutes offices in Cork. You will have a proven ability for working independently and will undertake a programme of research. An official go/no go progress assessment will be completed within your first 12 months. At the end of the 4 years, you are required to write and submit a thesis for examination.
We have available a number of scholarships in the area of Analogue Mixed-Signal Design for Precision Circuits. These will encompass a number of areas including:
• Analogue to Digital Converters
• Sensor Interfaces
• Cryogenic CMOS circuits
