  16. Application and Comparison of Voltage-Mode and Current-Mode function blocks in High-Voltage Analog and Mixed-Signal Integrated Systems 

    Small abstract: Voltage-mode analog signal processing in high-voltage integrated systems may be a challenging task. The high-voltage voltage-mode function blocks may be difficult in design if they are expected to retain all the functionality of their low-voltage counterparts. Current-mode signal processing is more resilient against troubles cause by high ranges of voltage drops present in high-voltage systems, due to a current nature of the signal processing. Possible areas of application for current-mode high-voltage signal processing blocks should be analyzed along with  comparison of alternative voltage-mode and current-mode solutions of specific signal processing blocks. Silicon and SoI technology processes should be taken into account, as well as advantages of SoC or 3D technologies.

  18. Optimization of Acquisition and Data Buffering for Real-time Image Processing. 


    Abstract: High-resolution, fast digital cameras produce enormous amount of data. The data should be acquired and processed in real-time using powerful CPUs or GPUs. Before processing, data are sent using various high-speed digital interfaces, like Camera Link, PCIe or GbE. Smart techniques needs to be developed for efficient data buffering (DMA, shared memory, etc.) and transferring between camera, CPU and GPU. 
Good knowledge of C/C++ and Linux is required.

  19. Distributed Dynamic Modelling of Bipolar Power Semiconductor Devices with Implementation in SPICE.
    
Abstract: Bipolar power device modelling is still a non-trivial task. Behavioural lumped models are widely used in circuit simulators; they provide short simulation times and relatively easy convergence but result accuracy is much compromised as far as current and voltage waveforms are concerned. However, these waveforms are necessary to accurately calculate power dissipation which is a crucial issue in power electronics. Moreover, such models have poor predictivity, i.e., they are unable of properly represent the influence of working conditions on device operation. Distributed models based on charge transport physics are far more accurate and thus promising but their success depends on implementation in standard circuit simulators. The main aim of the work will be to expand earlier work by developing a dynamic IGBT model based on distributed ambipolar diffusion equation. The model should be implemented in the SPICE circuit simulator. Much attention must be paid to ensuring numerical convergence. The candidate should consider both improving the existing standalone numerical algorithm for the diffusion equation as well as using SPICE algorithms which would need transformation of model equations into a circuit representation. A parameter extraction procedure should be established based on data that can be found in device datasheets or measured using standard laboratory equipment. 

    Requirements: MSc in electronic engineering or computer science, interest in numerical algorithm application; English level sufficient to understand scientific texts and to communicate complex scientific ideas
