TEAM LEADER DIGITAL IC DESIGN

JOB DESCRIPTION

Smartphones that automatically unlock when they recognize their owner. Gaming systems with real, realistic virtual reality components. Crash-proof drones that avoid obstacles such as wires or trees and land on a surface they selected as safe. Robots that understand their environment and interpret their operator’s body language or gestures.

These are just a few of the many different applications that our customers are building with our sensor products.

These developments are driven from our Sony DepthSensing competence center located in Brussels.

The DepthSensing competence center develops full stack solutions: from sensor IC’s, camera modules and drivers, computer-vision software, up to proof of concepts of applications.

The IC R&D activities are therefore very much linked to the systems we develop and their requirements, driven from the DepthSensing competence center in Brussels and executed in collaboration with other IC R&D centers located in Japan, Israel and USA.

This job opening is your opportunity to become part of our success!
