SILICON AUSTRIA LABS IS LOOKING FOR: MASTER THESIS – TWO-STAGED OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIER ANALOG GENERTOR IN 28 MM TSMC TECHNOLOGY (F/M/D)

In the network of science and industry, SAL offers research in the areas of Sensor Systems, RF Systems, Power Electronics, System Integration Technologies and Embedded Systems. SAL – a great place to research.

Fulltime, Temporary – LINZ

YOUR FUTURE RESPONSIBILITIES

In this master thesis a new design methodology will be used to design a two-stage operational amplifier (OpAmp) analog generator in 28nm TSMC technology. The candidate will familiarize himself/herself with the design framework based on Berkeley Analog Generator (BAG) with Python as a scripting tool and Cadence as a generator execution tool (co-supervised). She/he will also analyze available cores of two-stage operation amplifier analog generators (self-learning) and available CMFB analog generators. Candidate will adapt available script based on discussion with researchers/supervisor towards successful analog generator (co-supervised).

  • Literature (re)search regarding two-stage operational amplifier design.
  • Coded two-stage operational amplifier design methodology generator within BAG framework.
  • Publication of the results at a conference or in a scientific journal.

YOUR PROFILE

  • Experience in Cadence analog design flow (from schematic to post-layout simulation).
  • Knowledge of analog IC design methodology (operation amplifier, current mirror, current source, etc.).
  • Python knowledge.
  • Linux knowledge is a plus.
  • Team player, self motivated and goal oriented.
