Postdoctoral Researcher-Analogue to Digital Converters
- Carry out and lead innovative research in Analogue Mixed-Signal integrated circuit design in the area of ADC and/or sensor interfaces.
- Take a leadership role on existing research projects under the direction of a Principal Investigator to develop new architectures, circuits and algorithms.
- Design Analogue Mixed Signal Circuits, which may include system level simulation, algorithm development, schematic design, layout and validation of manufactured silicon.
- Work on collaborative research projects with MCCI industry partners who include companies such as Xilinx, Analog Devices, Cypress, On Semi and M/A-COM.
- Engage in the dissemination and publication of the results of the research aiming for high quality publications such as ISSCC and JSSC.
- Mentor Masters, Ph.D. students and junior research staff.
Microelectronic Circuits Centre Ireland (MCCI) is an EI / IDA technology centre hosted at Tyndall National Institute – University College Cork in collaboration with the University of Limerick. Its mission is to carry out industry-led world-class mixed-signal and RF integrated circuit research to deliver trained people and IP to industry.
MCCI targets real-life applications with its research and currently has projects in diverse topics such as next generation smart-phones, imaging for security applications and radiation-less early cancer detection.
Digitally-Assisted-Analogue techniques such as digital pre-distortion, post-correction and calibration can be used in such deep-submicron technologies to improve the performance of traditional Analogue circuits and these techniques are at the core of MCCI research.
