Research & development - Leuven | About a week ago
Dynamic Random Access Memories (DRAM) are at the heart of every computer. The enormous progress of electronic systems over the last half century has relied on the relentless improvement of DRAM performance and cost. Unfortunately, DRAM cost reduction is slowing down since mid 2010’s and radically new computer memory concepts are needed to sustain system performance and costs scaling in the future. Imec is actively researching various such new types of memory technologies. Typically, these memories are 3D-integrated to guarantee low cost, whereas high speed and -endurance requirements call for charge-based data storage mechanisms. The development of these new memory cell concepts needs to be complemented with innovations in the supporting read- and peripheral circuits, without which memory arrays are useless. The purpose of this post-doctoral study is to invent the circuits needed for controlling next generation computer memories and to make a thorough analysis of the system level performance and comparison to the state-of-the-art.
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 committed to being an inclusive employer and 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 imec.academy, '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.
