CMOS imager architecture for RTS noise mitigation
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0316
CMOS image sensors (CIS) address different applications ranging from medical field (X-rays) to videosurveillance (visible part of the spectrum), as well as thermal imaging (Infra-Red). An important feature of CIS consist in their ability to detect low level of light. That's why electronic noise has raised much interest the past few years.
Exploration of wiring diagnostics via compressive sensing: Algorithms and ultra-compact Analog-to-Information (A2I) architectures
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0162
Wired networks are considered as the backbones of complex systems. The increase of the complexity of modern systems has come with the increase of wire lengths. Whatever their application domain, wires can be subject to aggressive environmental conditions which may create defects. These defects can have dramatic consequences and if not detected soon can be the cause of deadly accident.
Ion beam analysis of 3-D structures for microelectronics of the Future
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0277
3D integration of components is one of the strategies to improve the performance of integrated circuits for advanced technology nodes. This PhD project will focus on the physicochemical characterisation of 3D structures (transistors, imagers)at a key step of their fabrication called doping, which aims at modifying the conductivity.
Event-based, bio-inspired coding and unsupervised learning for Deep Neural Networks, using artificial synapses
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0102
The last couple of years have seen a renewed interest in deep learning and deep neural networks (DNNs). Advances in hardware and in particular the use of high-end graphic processing units (GPUs) have enabled the realization of large and powerful networks , that are the first pattern recognizers capable of human-competitive performances on handwritten characters recognition, traffic signs recognition or face recognition .
