"Chip design is an adventure that never get tired," says Peter Kadaňka, designer ON Semiconductor

Press news

When I last did an interview with Mr. Peter Kadaňka designer of integrated circuits, ON Semiconductor, was shortly after the first lecture of analog integrated circuits course taught at the Institute of Microelectronics (artificial).

Ing. Kadaňka had just led the lectures his dream, as he says: * "I originally wanted to be a teacher like my brother, now it's even better. I do creative work for large companies and can pass their knowledge to students who may be in my future colleagues. "* And in this regard with it I can only agree. For the last three years, when the project started full cooperation between the artificial and the ON Semiconductor Rožnov went to work in several graduates. Most of them are already very short time, developed with top experts in the design of integrated circuits. * "Students have a fear of microelectronics, but there is no reason. After graduation, they always give experienced designers, and if I speak for our company is very well taken care of graduates' * added ** ing Kadaňka **.

  • "Also, career growth and salary are with respect to other fields at a high level. Students expect after taking up any job they get a car, mobile phone and 50tisícový salary. It is true that it is not with us, but on the other hand, with the passing years and the experience of growing wages and various benefits to above-average values. Another huge plus is the high salary for the successful application of the patent or publication. "*, Adding with a smile more motivational reason to pursue chip design.

Finally, it may be the reason for choosing as his future microelectronics industry to work on projects large and famous companies such as Nokia, NEC, Dell and many others. The project for Nokia adds another hotel guest experience. * „We did draft a special power supply circuit with very specific parameters. Originally, the contract to implement a rival company, but because management was not satisfied with the results of Nokia, contacted our company. The result was a contract, the amount four years exceeded 1.5 billion CZK. It is then for us Rožnov gathered executives, including the handing out of America and the plaques and contentedly patting on the shoulder. "* Finally, when he had ** ing ** Kadaňka summarize the reasons why they engage in the design of integrated circuits, said: * "Lack of experts in the market, career and salary growth, and creative work.“ * And I would add the future, without which we can not take no phone, TV, radio, computer, just anything, which is a bit of electronics. Microelectronics is the future for everyone!

Cooperation between the Institute of Microelectronics and the private sector has a long history. Design, development and testing of these circuits is one of the main areas of the Institute of Microelectronics, which are both taught, but also an area in the interests of our scientific-research activities. What is the optimal design according to customer requirements, how to make and also how to use them. It's basically a very broad field in which to apply obvodáři, technologists, physicists and chemists. Of course, that one person can encompass all of these professions, because each specializes according to their own skills and discretion.

Ing. Peter Kadaňka (50 years), graduated in microelectronics at the then Department of Microelectronics in 1984. After he became district engineer in the company Tesla Roznov Radhoštěm. After the fall of communism, which collapsed and Tesla passed threw short as a laborer in the production of silicon ingots in the company Terosil. Followed flight led by Motorola, the semiconductor division became independent in 1999 and operates under the name ON Semiconductor. In 2007, the company's acti­vities were extended to Brno, and thanks to the acquisition of AMI Semiconductor.

Ing. Kadaňka for his 25-year career as a designer of integrated circuits successfully applied 16 patents worldwide under the auspices of his employer. A few years ago and fulfilled his dream of becoming a teacher, which was established cooperation with the Institute of Microelectronics, FEEC, Brno University of Technology, where he regularly teaches a very positive response among students.

ON Semiconductor is an international company based in Phoenix, Arizona USA. It is one of the world's leading manufacturers of integrated circuits and discrete semiconductor components, which are used in various electronic devices. Czech companies in the group of ON Semiconductor to build as many as 60 years of tradition in the field of electronics and its historic predecessors Roznov Tesla (1949–1991), Tesla and Sesame Terosil. Modern integrated circuits are now designed and produced by companies in the United SCG Design Center Design Quantcast ON and ON Semiconductor Czech Republic. Their claims centers in Rožnov and now in Glasgow. Significant customers include Delta, Sony, LG, Philips, NEC, Dell and others. With its top employees are the center of the Czech heads of world leaders in their field. This area has a significant impact rich mutual cooperation between ON Semiconductor and the Institute of Microelectronics, FEEC, BUT Brno, where workers of regular lectures.

** ** For information about the faculty: Electrotechnical disciplines were first at the technical university, BUT the first time in 1905. Since 1959, when it was founded as an independent faculty of energy, which later transformed into the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, has successfully completed engineering studies at our faculty over 23 000 graduates. In 2001 she received the present name of Science – Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication Technology (FIT) and a year later she conceived the accreditation of new advanced degree programs in a structured study. The faculty has more than 4,400 students in bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs. Studying at the faculty is focused on a wide range of scientific areas: control technology and robotics, biomedical engineering, power electronics and electrical engineering, electrotechnology and electronics, microelectronics, and Radioelectronics Teleinformatics.
