For 3 years, we started in the MFX team a new axis around the layout problems for electronics. In particular, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronic components are often integrated into the 3D shape around them. The change of design of one often impacts the other, making the design process complex and costly.
This postdoc objective is to explore how to jointly optimize an object's shape and the electronic circuits integrated into it.
The conception of PCBs is by nature a geometric problem: organizing components and tracks on a domain with a layered geometry. This organization has to take into account geometrical technical constraints such as minimizing the length of certain tracks, ensuring that tracks from the same bus have the same length, controlling the width of a track or space between them. Despite significant advancements in Electronic Design Automation (EDA) softwares, creating PBCs or changing their design is still a complex and costly task. Because of these difficulties, many possibilities of the PCBs are not fully exploited.
A first project, conducted jointly with the group of Bernd Bickel (IST Austria), consists in the creation of foldable PCBs that align with the object in order to cover it with LEDs.
The goal of the postdoc is to continue this project further and overcome the current limits of the conception of PCBs.
Candidate should have a Ph.D. in Computer Graphics, Electronic Engineering or Robotics.
