Job ID 46652BR Date posted 10/12/2023
We're looking for a Senior Analog Design Engineer to join our team. Does this sound like a good role for you?

In this role, you will work on the design, development, and refinement of Multi-Gbps PAM4 SERDES IP. You will be part of a fast-growing analog and mixed signal R&D team, developing high speed analog integrated circuits in the latest FinFET process nodes. 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.

Job Responsibilities
  • Investigate and contribute developing circuit architectures that address architectural bottlenecks and drive to revolutionary improvements in power, area and performance targets.
  • Oversee physical layout to minimize the effect of parasitics, device stress, and process variation.
  • Document design features and test plans.
  • Consult on the overall electrical characterization of the SerDes IP product. Investigate customer silicon data for design enhancements. Propose solutions for post-silicon design updates.

Job Requirements
  • PhD with 2+ years, or MSc with 4+ years of practical analog IC design experience. Degree in Electrical Engineering or similar.
  • Deep knowledge of transistor level circuit design, with particular focus on high-speed analog design
  • Design experience with at least one sub-circuit relevant to SerDes: receive equalizers, samplers, voltage/current-mode drivers, serializers, deserializers, voltage-controlled oscillator, phase mixer, delay-locked loop, phase locked loop, bandgap reference, ADC, DAC

Experience in the following aspects of the design process is studied as a plus:
  • Expertise of layout effects (i.e. matching, reliability, proximity effects, etc.).
  • Knowledgeable in Verilog-A for analog behavioral modeling
  • Experience with TCL, Perl, C, Python, MATLAB, or other scripting languages is a nice to have.

Our Silicon IP business is all about integrating more capabilities into an SoC—faster. We offer the world’s broadest portfolio of silicon IP: predesigned blocks of logic, memory, interfaces, analog, security, and embedded processors. All to help customers integrate more capabilities. Meet unique performance, power, and size requirements of their target applications. And get differentiated products to market quickly with reduced risk.
