In the position of a Analog Design Engineer you will be a part of a team developing high speed analog integrated circuits. We are looking for an engineer with theoretical knowledge and practical experience to contribute to the team. Working from system standards to block specifications, you quickly identify potential circuit architectures and successful design strategies. You must have experience in designing at least two of the following key functions: Clock and Data Recovery, PLLs, Transmitters, Receivers, Bandgaps, Power management blocks, Amplifiers & Comparators, Data Converters. You will work with a cross functional design team of analog and digital designers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our environment is best in class with a full suite of IC design tools supplemented by custom, in-house tools supported by an experienced software/CAD team. Experience with tools for schematic entry, IC layout and SPICE simulation is required. 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.
This position is responsible for designing innovative analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits; developing circuit specifications working from published protocols and standards; and, selecting/creating circuit architectures based on practical experience and knowledge of current circuit literature. Furthermore you will apply theoretical knowledge to analyze and explain circuit behavior and limitations; implement rigorous simulation test-benches to verify circuit performance; incorporate test and tuning controls; participate in critical peer reviews; clearly document all circuit details; and guide, implement and review IC layouts.
Generally, this position requires a degree in Electrical & Electronics or Computer Engineering (degree of MSc and PhD with working experience can apply for Senior position). The successful candidate must possess a solid understanding of specialization area plus working knowledge of one other related area; have the ability to resolve issues in creative ways; exercise judgment in selecting methods and techniques to obtain solutions; execute projects from start to completion; contribute to moderately complex aspects of a project; and, determines and develops recommendations to solutions. Particularly, The position for Senior Analog Design Engineer, while working on team-driven or task-oriented projects, receives little instructions on day-to-day work and general instructions on new assignments and projects; work is evaluated upon completion to ensure objectives have been met. This position may guide more junior peers with aspects of their job and network with senior internal and external personnel in own area of expertise.
