The candidate will be in charge of designing and testing new generation neuromorphic circuits and systems (Spiking Neural Networks - SNN) for embedded Artificial Intelligence. After a phase of adaptation to the neuromorphic technology developed at IEMN and IRCICA, the candidate will be responsible for the design (modelling and layout) and experimental validation of these neuromorphic circuits integrated in CMOS technology (TSMC 65nm). Based at IRCICA, the priority applications are part of the ANR UWake project, the main objective of which is to implement a neuromorphic circuit capable of waking up a node of the IoT network, which responds to a specific binary sequence.
After having appropriated the technology, the candidate will be responsible for:
- to undertake an exhaustive bibliographical study in order to identify original and efficient architectures that can be implemented on the basis of the SNN neuromorphic technology developed at IEMN and IRCICA.
- to model and implement the optimal neuromorphic architecture in 65 nm TSMC CMOS technology.
- to organise the instrumental resources of the IRCICA to carry out the experimental evaluation of the performance of the integrated device at system scale
In addition to the skills of an IC designer, the candidate will be expected to demonstrate good writing skills and teamwork abilities. He/she will show initiative, autonomy, organisational ability and accountability. For the job profile, mastery of Cadence software and a first experience in designing CMOS active circuits are required.
Based in Villeneuve d'Ascq on the Haute Borne Science Park, the Research Institute on Software and Hardware Components for Information and Advanced Communication (IRCICA) is a Service and Research Unit (USR-3380) associating the CNRS and the University of Lille. For the past ten years, IRCICA has been developing interdisciplinary research to imagine and create responsible information and communication technologies. This allows researchers and teacher-researchers with complementary skills to be brought together in the same place to tackle major scientific and societal challenges with interdisciplinary and/or disruptive approaches from the embryonic stage of the projects.
IRCICA houses around 120 teacher-researchers, researchers, students, engineers and technicians with complementary skills from the four partner laboratories CRIStAL - Lille Research Centre for Computer Science, Signals and Automation, IEMN - Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnologies, PhLAM - Laboratory of Laser, Atom and Molecule Physics and L2EP - Lille Laboratory of Electrical Engineering and Power Electronics.
