Device Engineer

Posted 23 April by Enigma People Solutions Easy Apply

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.

The Role

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.
