Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago
The Imec Advanced-RF (ARF) group in Leuven enjoys a world-class reputation in advanced communication and radar and millimeter wave sensing systems. In these fields, the group has a vertical system approach: our expertise ranges from antenna, frontend, baseband, analog-to-digital conversion to algorithms and systems. The group also combines innovative communication and sensing technologies that unleash the full potential of future smart cities, smart health and internet of things (IoT). Furthermore, research is also done in the fields of advanced wireline communication, future RF technologies, mmwave sensing for lifesciences, mmwave imaging, …
Next generation communication and radar systems will operate at frequencies beyond 100 GHz. At such high frequencies, traditional interconnect solutions based on PCBs incur excessively high loss and leakage of signal. Furthermore, larger antenna arrays are needed to overcome higher path loss, low amplification, and low absolute power from transistors. Heterogeneous integration of different transistor technologies and passive components is essential to meet link budget and high data rate requirements at these frequencies.
Your main expertise should be wafer level packaging technologies with a focus on mm-wave and sub-terahertz applications. Knowledge of both technology and design aspects of mm-wave transitions and their co-design with RF circuits will be your main responsibility. Literature survey and keeping an up-to-date list of recent (academic and industry) developments in this field will be an additional task.
Your tasks will 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 committed to being an inclusive employer and 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 market appropriate salary with many fringe benefits.
