Kilby Labs – Dallas is looking for a qualified candidate to participate in the definition, design, simulation, prototype build-up, and verification of state-of-the-art optical sensors, optical sources, and enabling process technologies. Kilby Labs represents a research organization within TI chartered to define new, innovate and valuable IP in collaboration with business units and customers. This research organization is afforded the freedom to take on more risky and disruptive IP development than typical product lines. Kilby engineers must have the ability to approach new and/or existing problems from a different perspective in a way that results in unique, highly disruptive and protectable solutions. Kilby engineers have the opportunity to participate in every aspect of the IP development including system definition, design, simulations, prototyping, bench evaluation and customer visits. Kilby engineers are required to be self-motivated, critical thinkers, clear communicators, and be able to influence both technical and business leaders all within in team environments.

As a photonics device Engineer for TI’s Kilby Labs, you will be responsible for proposing and validating new ideas in sensors, sensor arrays, integrated circuit (IC) signal conditioning, silicon photonics and fundamental IC processes aimed at creating new and valuable markets for TI. As part of Kilby, you are required to define, model, simulate and experimentally validate system level solutions and architectures to meet application specifications. Hands-on lab experience measuring, evaluating and debugging component level and complex electronics / electro-optical systems is a must. Experience with avalanche photo diodes (APDs), silicon photo multipliers (SiPM), IC signal conditioning, and optical emitters (e.g. LEDs, laser diodes, edge emitting laser diodes and vertical cavity surface emitting laser diodes). A deep understanding of the physics of these devices is a must. Exceptional candidates will demonstrate the ability to understand problems, propose and model unique solutions and evaluate their solutions in system level simulations and hardware prototypes. A fundamental knowledge of semiconductor and optical structures, processes, circuits, and systems is a must.

Specific responsibilities will include:

  • Influence business and technical leadership team across the company to build advocacy for investment in optical projects
  • Define system and component level requirements and definitions
  • Model , design and prototype optical emitter designs based on application requirements
  • Model, design and prototype photo-detector designs based on application requirements
  • Develop IC simulations to demonstrate design feasibility and predict performance
  • Build/have built experimental prototypes to verify performance versus requirements
  • Collaborate with IC designers and process technologists, internal and external foundries, and EDA experts, to implement complex sensor arrays, integrated signal conditioning and electro-optical systems on a chip.
  • Evaluate custom sensor and electro-optical components for the target application
  • Identify market opportunities and develop compelling solution which balances performance, cost and differentiation which solves customers’ problems.

To be considered for this position, please apply to this requisition.

Texas Instruments is an equal opportunity employer and supports a diverse, inclusive work environment.
