Senior Process Integration Engineer PIM

IMEC performs world-leading research in nano-electronics. Imec leverages its scientific knowledge with the innovative power of its global partnerships in ICT, healthcare and energy. Imec delivers industry-relevant technology solutions. In a unique high-tech environment, its international top talent is committed to providing the building blocks for a better life in a sustainable society. Imec is headquartered in Leuven (Belgium) and has offices in the Netherlands, Taiwan, US, China, Japan and India. Its staff of more than 2350 people includes over 750 industrial residents and guest researchers.

IMEC Specialty Components and Platform Development (SCPD) unit offers companies to develop and fabricate customized specialty microsystems that cannot be produced in standard CMOS technology. The basis of our 200 mm fab is an advanced 0.13µm CMOS platform that runs a 24/7 operation. To do this, we have added platforms for processing of various CMOS imagers – hyperspectral, backside illuminated, embedded CCD-, MEMS and NEMS, photonics, and microfluidics chips. We are able to tune our technology to the demands of the customer and develop the technology flow for both prototypes and low-volume production.

The Product Industrialisation and Management Team (PIM) is part of the Process Industrialisation and Delivery (PID) department. The PID department uses industry standard semiconductor wafer fabrication equipment to produce low volumes of high value niche devices for use in diverse fields and applications:

  • SiN and Si photonic devices for telecom providers (Optical transceivers)
  • Optical devices for use in life sciences (Sequencing DNA, Detecting viruses and diseases)
  • Nano-probes (For detection of electrical brain activity)
  • Sensors for industrial purposes (EUV sensors, Electron detectors for use in SEM and TEMS)
  • Production of tooling wafers and advanced test materials for equipment vendors
