PhD position on high-speed mixed signal IC design for sub picosecond jitter TDCs Swabian Instruments and the University of Stuttgart

The R&D team at Swabian Instruments aims at casting its unique knowledge in FPGA based TDC design into a cutting edge TDC ASIC and take the lead in terms of timing resolution and linearity. We are looking for outstanding electrical engineers (MSc) to become part of this endeavor as PhD students with us in collaboration with the Institute of Smart Sensors of the University of Stuttgart. We offer you a research position with a challenging mission statement and the possibility to become a key person in Swabian Instruments’ emerging ASIC design team.

Your task

  • Design a TDC ASIC with sub picosecond timing jitter
  • Simulate and research modern tapped-delay-line and Vernier based TDC architectures
  • Evaluate the performance of the fabricated chip and improve the design
  • Generate patents and publications and present your work on international conferences

Your profile

  • MSc in electrical engineering with a distinguished score
  • Above average general understanding of high-speed electronics
  • Excellent insight in analog IC design is a must (thesis or internship)
  • Previous experience with TDCs or PLLs is a plus
  • Self motivated and self learning

What you can expect

  • Collaboration with the world’s top research institutions
  • Being a key person in our emerging ASIC design team
  • An open minded working atmosphere with a flat organization and flexible working hours
  • You will move the boundary of what is possible with modern TDCs
  • Your chip will become a product and will enable our customers to do new science
