Senior Analog RF IC Desinger 

Architect, design and implementultra-low-power Analog and RF sensor devices to change the way we work and live 

Imec Netherlands hasestablished a world-leading track record on the design of novel sensors forultra-low-power IoT devices. For instance, our teams continue to developinnovations in environmental monitoring, accurate localization, implantabletherapeutics, medical/wearable devices and many other fields. At our HQ inLeuven, Belgium we are world-renowned for pioneering new process technologiesin collaboration with industrial foundries and with the broader semiconductorecosystem. Imec’s research tracks enable unique opportunities for end-to-endinnovations.

TheIC-design team in imec Netherlands develops innovative solutions for massiveand heterogeneous sensor networks to connect billions of devices within theinternet of things (IoT). We have built various ultra-low-power (ULP) radioIC’s like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth-LE, and also a UWB 6-10 GHz radio tuned towards precise ranging andlocalization (~6 cm). Besides, we deliver our designs to customers, patent thedifferent inventions and publish our results in renowned conferences and papers(ISSCC, RFIC, DATE, JSSC, . In this position, you will participate in a multi-disciplinary team to make our solutions smarter by addinginnovative analog circuits, use RF circuits for sensing solutions, and developminiature transceivers for IoT and medical/ implantable applications
