Gallium Nitride (GaN)
technology offers faster switching power devices with higher breakdown
voltages, higher thermal conductivity and lower on-resistance than silicon
(Si). GaN-based power devices play a key role in the power conversion within
battery chargers, smartphones, computers, servers, automotive, lighting systems
GaN power devices are a breakthrough technology, revolutionizing the power electronics landscape and have an exciting roadmap for next generation. Imec has developed 100V, 200V and 650V enhancement mode devices on 200mm GaN-on-Silicon wafers with state-of-the-art performance and reproducibility. And it explores the next generation GaN technology with a higher level of integration (eg. GaN-IC) and higher performances.
Imec has been pioneering GaN technology for more than 15 years. We use 200mm wafers to realize GaN power devices at lower costs while maintaining world-class performance. Our research covers GaN epitaxy as well as device engineering and processing technology.
To strengthen our team, we are looking for a device layout engineer to
support the design of GaN power devices. This encompasses the design,
layout, PDK, and physical understanding of the test results in order to
optimize the device design and the technology.
Your tasks include:
We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium.
