IOC-10 PhD in Mixed-Signal Design for the Internet of Things
Contract type: Full-time
Microelectronic Circuits Centre Ireland (MCCI) is an Enterprise Ireland / IDA technology centre hosted at Tyndall National Institute in collaboration with the University of Limerick. Its mission is to carry out industry-led world-class mixed-signal and RF integrated circuit research to deliver trained people and IP to industry. MCCI is already collaborating with 25 companies and many of our 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 next generation smart-phones, imaging for security applications and radiation-less early cancer detection. MCCI is carrying out innovative research in the areas of mmWave Radio Frequency, Frequency Synthesis, high speed optical transceivers, high performance data-converters and power management integrated circuits to enable new applications.
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 Intergrated Circuit Chips that are required to enable the next generation of IoT applications.
