Enigma People Solutions is looking for a Device Engineer to join the team of our multinational electronics client’s Imaging Division based in Edinburgh.
In this role the successful candidate will be responsible for the research and development of pixels
for photonics devices. This role will bridge the gap between process development (diode design) and
circuit design (pixel readout circuitry). The candidate should therefore have a knowledge of CMOS
processing and fabrication in addition to circuit design. The aim of this role is to study the pixel
operation in detail and understand the key factors which impact performance. This will include the
operation of the diode plus the associated readout circuitry. Pixel design specification and
performance will be evaluated against product and system requirements and it is the goal of the team
to deliver pixels for inclusion in mass market products. In addition to this the pixel team develops and
maintains test chips which are used for advanced pixel and diode R&D and this role will require the
successful candidate to work on the design of such test chips as well as contributing to the
development of advanced pixel and diode designs. This will therefore require close interaction with
the design team and also the technology development team at our foundry.
This role has unique challenges, such as merging design and simulation aspects with
characterization to understand the effects of pixel design and technology on critical figures of merit.
This challenging role will provide an opportunity to apply knowledge of process development and
solid-state physics to device development taking into consideration product requirements and system
constraints within the Photonics roadmap of the Imaging Division.
You will be tasked with layout and simulation activities to help the SPAD Pixel Team to design new
pixels, and you will be analysing electro-optical characterization data to feed back into the design and
simulation. Initially this involves familiarization with existing techniques, methods and databases.
You will work in collaboration with local and other European sites, to develop and adopt standard
methods and reporting formats.
The Key Skills & Experience
The candidate must be team focussed and highly motivated. This role requires an understanding of
the full photonics system and therefore strong collaboration with colleagues locally and in the wider
design/engineering community across the Imaging Division is a key factor for success. Strong
communication skills are mandatory.
