Division description

CEA Tech is a world leader in technological research. Its teams of research engineers are mobilized to build and transfer to industrial partners technology portfolios that meet the needs of the telecommunication sector. Leti, one of CEA Tech's institutes, focuses on micro/nanotechnologies and their applications in wireless communication systems and components.

Description de l'unité

The RFIC lab develops systems-on-chip and modules in Silicon and III-V technologies for industrial partners. The major challenges of the latest generation of wireless systems concern the integration of the critical functions on the most compact and efficient systems possible. In addition, the increase in throughput and communication range requires the use of increasingly high transmission power and frequency bands, with increasingly wide bandwidths. In this context, it becomes necessary to combine different technologies in highly integrated modules capable of achieving optimal system performance. This integration of several technologies offers increased flexibility and performance while ensuring a very high level of integration. This RF/mmW Design Engineer position aims to strengthen our team in the development of new technologies and architectures for high frequency power applications.
