Advanced RF circuit design in a system and technology co-optimization approach

Communication networks, IOT, radiofrequencies and antennas Electronics and microelectronics - Optoelectronics Engineering sciences Technological challenges


This thesis addresses the two major challenges facing Europe today in terms of integrating the communication systems of the future. The aim is to design RF integrated circuits using 22nm FDSOI technology in the frequency bands dedicated to 6G, which will not only increase data rates but also reduce the carbon footprint of telecoms networks. At the same time, it is essential to consider the evolution of silicon technologies that could improve the energy efficiency and effectiveness of these circuits. This work will be carried out with an eye to the design methodology of radio frequency systems.
Within the framework of the thesis, the objective will be broken down into three phases. Firstly, simulation tools will be developed to predict the performance of Leti's future 10nm FDSOI technology. The second stage will involve identifying the most relevant architectures available in the literature for the application areas envisaged for the technology. A link with upstream telecoms projects will be systematically established to ensure that the candidate understands the systems' challenges.
Finally, in order to validate the concepts developed, the design of an LNA and a VCO as part of an ongoing project in the laboratory will be proposed.

The candidate will join a large team that works on new communication systems and addresses aspects of architectural study, modeling and design of integrated circuits. The candidate must have serious skills in the design of integrated circuits and radio frequency systems as well as good ability to work in a team.
