Analog Design Engineer, Sr I
You will be part of an R&D team developing high speed analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for 25+ Gbps SerDes IP.
We are looking for an engineer with theoretical knowledge and practical experience to contribute to the team. You will work with a cross functional design team of analog and digital designers from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Our design environment is best-in-class with a full suite of IC design tools, supplemented by custom in-house tools, and supported by an experienced software / CAD team.
Develop analog sub-block circuit design and verification
Knowledge of physical layout effects to minimize the effect of parasitics, device stress, and process variation
Present simulation data for peer review
Document design features and test plans
MSc with 2 years of analog IC design experience
In depth familiarity with transistor level circuit design - sound CMOS design fundamentals
Detailed design experience with at least one analog sub-circuits : receive equalizers, samplers, voltage / current-mode drivers, serializers, deserializers, voltage-controlled oscillator, phase mixer, delay-locked loop, phase locked loop, bandgap reference, ADC, DAC
Aware of ESD issues (i.e. circuit techniques, layout) is a plus
Familiarity with custom digital design (i.e. high speed logic paths)
Knowledge of design for reliability (i.e. EM, IR, aging)
Knowledge of layout effects (i.e. matching, reliability, proximity effects)
Experience with tools for schematic entry, physical layout, and design verification
Hands-on experience with physical layout of high speed circuits is a plus
Knowledge of SPICE simulators and simulation methods
Knowledgeable in Verilog-A for analog behavioral modeling and simulation-control / data-capture
Experience with TCL, Perl, C, Python, MATLAB, or other scripting languages is desired
Good communication and documentation skills
