Design and layout an integrated circuit for multi-coil inductive power transmitter.

Student project: Design and layout of an integrated control for multi-coil inductive power transmitter

What you will do

Inductive powering is the most widely used technique for powering implants. However, it suffers from sensitivity to position / orientation of the implant itself. To solve this issue, power transmitters with multiple coils seem a promising solution. However, controlling properly both phases and amplitudes of the transmitting coils is not trivial suing off-the-shelf components. Therefore, there is need for an integrated circuit to drive the coils. The scope of this thesis is to design, verify, document and layout a chip for controlling an inductive power transmitter consisting of multiple coils.

  • Literature review.
  • Architecture definition.
  • Analog IC design and layout.
  • Simulation and verification.
  • Functional description of the digital control (in vhdl and document).

What we do for you

By working in the biomedical IC design team, you will have the opportunity to grow your knowledge by interacting with very experienced and internationally recognized analog and digital designers. Additionally, the department includes a variety of expertise, including system design, algorithm development, clinical tests and so on.

Who you are

  • You are a Msc student in Electronic Engineering.
  • You are available for a period of 6 - 12 months.
  • You have experience in analog IC design, simulation and layout.
  • You have an analytical mindset for understanding pros and cons of different architectures.
  • Knowledge of PLL analysis is a plus.
  • Knowledge of verilog / verilogA / vhdl is a plus.
  • Entitled to do an internship in the Netherlands.
  • Motivated student eager to work independently and expand knowledge in the field.
  • Good written and verbal English skills.
