Fellowship - Signal Processing/CMOS integrated circuit technologies for ultra-compact 3D depth-imaging system
Japan

Job Reference: 00054

Location: Japan

Closing Date: 31/12/2018

Job Posted Date: 27/09/2018

Salary: C10M JPY

Employment Type: Toshiba Fellowship

Business Type: Research & Development

There is strong demand to reduce cost and size of 3D depth-imaging systems, including LiDAR, for use in the application of ADAS, drone, and precise-motion robotics. We are seeking a Fellow with an innovative idea for realizing a long-range solid-sate LiDAR and a passion for a cause to implement it. The aim of this programme is to demonstrate the proposed idea through the optimized design, implementation and evaluation of the system by using the design-to-production flow of TOSHIBA original photonic-device-mixed CMOS and MEMS processes.

Knowledge and Skills Required

Candidates should possess an expertise in (1) signal processing or (2) integrated circuit design for imaging system (ex. CMOS image sensor, ToF camera, certain depth sensor). More specifically, (1) RTL design, system design and evaluation using FPGA, MATLAB, C, and python (2) CMOS integrated (Mixed-Signal) circuit design, the experience for Cadence Tools.
