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
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:
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.
