Senior Analog Design Engineer
In this role you would have the following responsibilities :
Ensure analog sub-block performance adheres to SerDes standards and architecture document specifications.
Identify and refine circuit implementations to achieve optimal power, area and performance targets.
Propose design and verification strategies that use simulator features to ensure highest quality design.
Oversee physical layout to minimize the effect of parasitics, device stress, and process variation.
Collaborate with digital RTL engineers on the verification of calibration, adaptation and control algorithms for analog circuits.
Present simulation data for peer and customer review.
Ownership of analog and mixed-signal building block that is integrated as part of a larger SerDes design.
Document design features and test plans.
Consult on the electrical characterization of your circuit within the SerDes IP product.
Key Qualifications :
PhD with 1+ years, or MSc with 4+ years of SerDes / High-Speed analog design experience.
Familiarity with transistor level circuit design of fundamental analog and mixed -signal building blocks- sound CMOS design fundamentals.
Silicon-proven experience implementing circuits for analog and mixed-signal building blocks
Design experience with some of the following SerDes sub-circuits :
receive equalizers, data samplers, voltage / current-mode drivers, serializers, deserializers, voltage-controlled oscillator, phase interpolator, delay-locked loop, phase-locked loop, bandgap reference, ADC, DAC
Experience optimizing CMOS layout to minimize the effect of parasitic resistance and capacitance, and to reduce the effects of local device mismatch and proximity effects.
Awareness of ESD issues (i.e. circuit techniques, layout). and design for reliability (i.e. electro-migration, IR, aging, etc.).
Experience with EDA tools for schematic entry, physical layout, and design verification.
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
