GAN-IC device engineer

Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago

Device Engineer for GAN-IC technology.

Device Engineer GaN-IC

What you will do

Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology offers faster switching power devices with higher breakdown voltage and lower on-resistance than silicon (Si). GaN power devices are a breakthrough technology, revolutionizing the power electronics landscape and have an exciting roadmap for next generation GaN power devices. To unlock the full potential of the GaN fast switching components, a higher level of integration is required to reduce the inductive and capacitive parasitics. Imec has developed a 200V and 650V GaN-IC platform on Si and SOI, to co-integrate enhancement mode power devices with GaN driver stages and protection circuits on 200mm wafers with state-of-the-art performance and reproducibility. Following our roadmap, we expand the component offering with the integration of depletion-mode logic devices and Schottky barrier diodes. 

To strengthen our R&D team, we are looking for a device engineer to support the design and testing of the integrated components of the GAN-IC platform.  This encompasses the design, layout, and characterization of the GaN power devices, the Schottky diodes, and enhancement mode and depletion mode logic devices, which are all GaN-based.  This requires physical understanding of the test results in order to optimize the device design and the technology.  You will work closely together with the GaN-IC process integration engineer to discuss the results, work together towards continuous improvements and qualification of the devices of the GaN-IC platform. 

Your tasks include:

  • CAD based design and layout of the various components of the platform.
  • You perform electrical testing.
  • Analyze test data and work together with the process integration engineer to optimize the process flow and layout for improved performance and reliability of the various components of the GAN-IC platform.
  • Understand the device physics, band diagram and comprehensive operation of the components under static and dynamic operation, in order to guide the optimization process.
  • As you build up your competences and skills, we expect you to take up responsibilities as a project leader in one of our funded or bilateral projects, as a growth path for your career.

What we do for you

We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow. 
We are proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.
We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a competitive salary with many fringe benefits.

Who you are

  • You have a PhD in Electrical/Electronic Engineering.
  • We are looking for your knowledge in electrical functioning of electronic components, preferably in the field of power electronics, and basic understanding of operation of power systems.
  • Experience in Cadence and programming p-cells is a plus.
  • Experience using TCAD is a plus.
  • You work in a team with the process integration engineer.
  • You can meet deadlines and deliver customer requirements.
  • Good knowledge of English is a must.
