Automated checks for manufacturing data has long been state of the art – especially in chip design. These are used to check if the design is conform to the process specification with complex “Design Rule Checks” (DRC). However, this complexity introduces additional sources of errors: The DRCs itself need to be verified to rule out “bad” layouts passing the checks and not to reject correct data.

Therefore, this project aims at creating a python-based generator to create example layouts that are checked with different DRC tools. In this way, a consistent implementation of the checks should be ensured.

WHAT TO DO:

  • Literature research about layout generators
  • Alignment with a technology vendor
  • Concept and implementation of the generator
  • Documentation

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU:

Programming in Python


AND THIS IS US:

We strengthen enterprises with application-oriented research and development in microelectronics, systems engineering and mechatronics and transfer the results of basic research into applications and products. We support companies in launching internationally successful innovations for health, the environment and industry and provide solutions from the feasibility study to series production.

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU!

We thank you for your interest in working with us.

WHAT CAN WE OFFER YOU:

  • An attractive workplace in a modern, very well-equipped and industry-oriented research institute
  • Work directly at the interface between university and industry
  • Work in a flexible and creative team and on innovative and challenging topics

For the tasks described in the job offer and with the existing working conditions, an application is possible irrespective of gender and/or any physical disabilities. We foster professional equality of women and men. We invite women in particular to apply. As women are underrepresented at IMMS, they will be given priority in the case of equal suitability, ability and professional performance.
