SOD-10 Senior Researcher in Mixed-Signal Energy-Harvesting PMIC
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
Microelectronics Circuits Centre Ireland (MCCI) (www.mcci.ie)
MCCI is Ireland’s national Microelectronics Circuits Research Centre. MCCI has a team of over 90 researchers and engineers hosted across Tyndall National Institute (www.tyndall.ie), UL, SETU Carlow and UCD, collaborating on more than 50 research projects. Funded by Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland, its focus is to generate innovative technologies, which create high impact. Specifically, MCCI’s mission is to carry out industry-led, excellent Analog, Mixed-Signal, RF and Power Management Integrated Circuit research.
As part of its Ultra-Low power, Mixed-Signal, Energy-Harvesting PMIC research theme, MCCI offers this senior opportunity at its Tyndall National Institute based Cork office.
The Research Area
Our focus is on researching techniques to bring advanced mixed-signal control features to the sub-µW, energy-harvesting, smart sensing node’s power management IC (PMIC) space. Research PMICS derived from the Tyndall multiple-source, energy-harvesting PMIC platform will enable many of the edge nodes in tomorrow’s internet-of-things, IoT, to become battery-less by efficiently harvesting available ambient energies and supporting a reduction in the system’s energy consumption. Body-wearable and implantable medical devices are target application areas. This platform will also be at the heart of highly integrated energy-source in-package (eSiP) systems designed to showcase technologies being created across Tyndall’s co-located research groups, in areas such as thin-film magnetic-on-silicon, III-V UV PV devices, solid-state electrochemical storage cells/sensors and MEMS scale energy harvesting transducers spanning thermoelectric (TEG), PV or piezo/ electromagnetic vibrational.
About The Role
The role will ideally suit the established PMIC Researcher or industry based Senior/Principal CMOS Designer who desires a career path transitioning into research leadership in the Ultra-Low Power Energy Harvesting PMIC area.
You will be the central CMOS design person on the group’s existing mixed-signal, flexible, ultra-low-power platform, so that it will support the creation of derivative research PMICs across the entire ultra-low power energy harvesting application space from low voltage DC TEG based to low voltage AC vibrational.
You will report to the Principal Investigator, will act as both an independent design contributor and will support with co-ordinating a small team of post-graduate research staff and PhD students
