Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago
With Si CMOS technology scaling to sub-5 nm nodes, many challenges appear to maintain power and performance gains of digital circuits at small pitches. Innovative solutions are studied at various levels: not only the fabrication process of transistor is optimized using, e.g., advanced lithography and new channel materials, but also are introduced alternative transistor and standard cells architectures using technology boosters (Nano-Sheet FET, Complementary-FET, SuperVia, buried power rails...). The benefits of scaling in terms of increase in circuit Performance and reduction of Power consumption and die Area (PPA), requires to co-optimize advanced technologies features with the design of standard cells (Design-Technology Co-Optimization, DTCO).
In this job, you will benchmark various options for scaling CMOS and establish a roadmap for future technology developments. You will drive the DTCO assessment, based on your experience in modelling. Besides the physics-based modelling of future transistors, your study will include aspects from process integration, semiconductor physics, and circuit design. You will work in the device modelling team, and you will interact closely with experts in technology and circuit/system design.
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 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.
