Analog Design Engr, Sr II

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.

Job Responsibilities

  • Review SerDes standards to develop analog sub-block specifications.
  • Identify and refine circuit architectures to achieve optimal power, area and performance targets.
  • Propose design and verification strategies that efficiently use simulator features to ensure highest quality design.
  • Oversee physical layout to minimize the effect of parasitics, device stress, and process variation.
  • Present simulation data for peer and customer review.
  • Document design features and test plans.
  • Consult on the electrical characterization of your circuit within the SerDes IP product.
  • Job Requirements

  • PhD with 3 year, or MSc with 5 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, and familiarity with several other SerDes 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).
  • Familiarity with custom digital design (i.e. high speed logic paths).
  • Knowledge of design for reliability (i.e. EM, IR, aging, etc.).
  • Knowledge of layout effects (i.e. matching, reliability, proximity effects, etc.).
  • 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.
  • Synopsys Canada ULC values the diversity of our workforce. We are committed to provide access & opportunity to individuals with disabilities and will provide reasonable accommodation to individuals throughout the recruitment and employment process.
