PhD Scholarship in Ic Design for Switched Capacitor Power Converters

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position in acoustics at Technical University of Denmark. The deadline to apply is October 02, 2019.

Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) position in the area of IC design within the Electronics group (ELE).

The ELE group is responsible for analogue, power and mixed-mode IC design as well as power electronics research including advanced high efficiency high power density switching mode power supplies and very high frequency (VHF) power supplies. The goal of this PhD is research into IC design for high efficiency, high power density, and low cost switched capacitor power converters within the power range from 1 W to 300 W. The applications could cover adaptors for tablets and laptops, LED drivers, as well as microinverters for solar energy. For portable electronics such as laptops, there exists an ever-increasing demand for high power density and highly efficient power supplies. The primary focus of the project is to investigate and develop the best suitable switched capacitor power converter that will complement the performance of traditional inductor based switch-mode power supplies. Both resonant and soft charging topologies could be investigated. The project will include circuit modelling & IC design, tape-outs, and building & testing of prototype integrated circuits.

The assessment of the applicants will be made by Assistant Professor Pere Llimos Muntal and Associate Professor Ivan Jrgensen.
