EDUCATION DESIRED: MS or Ph.D., Electrical Engineering
ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS: Design and test of mixed signal circuits including data converters, signal generation circuits, digital and analog signal processing elements, and RF front-end electronics. Responsibilities involve all aspects of circuit design including architecture development, circuit concept demonstration, transistor-level design, simulation, modeling, circuit measurement, and customer interaction.
EXPERIENCE DESIRED: 2+ years actively involved with design and testing of mixed-signal integrated circuits such as ADCs, DACs, signal processing circuits, and RF front-end electronics in bipolar and FET technologies. Experience with laboratory test equipment and characterization of mixed-signal ICs and devices is required. Experience also with digital signal processing, applications of data converters, digital correction techniques, and a strong mathematical background are preferred.
KNOWLEDGE DESIRED: Familiarity with semiconductor IC technologies (e.g., SiGe BiCMOS, CMOS). Understanding of circuit design techniques, semiconductor device physics, signal processing, control theory, and electromagnetics. Use of typical PCB and IC design design environments including Cadence and behavioral level simulation tools such as Matlab/Simulink.
ESSENTIAL PHYSICAL/MENTAL REQUIREMENTS: Proficiency in use of computers, engineering work stations, verbal and written communication, interaction with customers/colleagues, and a team-oriented/fast-paced environment. Must be able and willing to travel to customer sites and program reviews and sufficiently mobile to conduct business throughout plant site.
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: U.S. citizenship required. Ability to obtain/maintain security clearances (post-start) is a plus.
