PhD Student Position with the VLSI Research 2007 at

PhD Student Position with the VLSI Research Group at Chalmers University of Technology

Today integrated circuits exhibit rapidly increasing power dissipation due to static leakage in idle circuits. Innovative device technology on its own does not provide scalable leakage-problem solutions that manage to keep up with increasing device density.

Leakage already now can present insurmountable design obstacles to energy-limited embedded Systems-On-Chips. To pave the way for future, dense Systems-On-Chips, breakthroughs are needed in the art of co-utilizing software and devices to efficiently combat leakage.

This PhD student position is within a research project that deals with intelligent power down of idle circuits to eliminate or at least curb the escalating static power dissipation. The research will address both software and hardware issues, such as run-time application profiling and power-gating circuits. The purpose is to transfer a circuit that has a history of long idle times into ultra low leakage mode. Here the circuit remains until the time of activation approaches; then the circuit is gradually woken up.

This project is inspired by and connected to Intel-funded work on power-gating circuit techniques and a project on flexible embedded architectures, called FlexSoC.

This position requires a Masters degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or an equivalent degree. The candidate must have a strong interest in electronic systems design.

The work of this PhD student position consists of 80% research and 20% teaching, and the salary is based on the existing employment agreement for PhD student positions at Chalmers.

For further information, please contact Professor Per Larsson-Edefors, tel 031-772 1700 or e-mail: or Associate Professor Lars Svensson, tel 031-772 1704

The application, which should preferably be sent by e-mail, must contain: CV, exam diploma with grades, contact details of reference persons, MSc thesis paper, and a short (at most one page) description of the candidate`s strengths, relevant for this position.

Mark the application with reference number 145/2006. Last day for application is January 31, 2007. The applications should be sent to Registrator, e-mail: or to the address:
