Essential Job Functions: Design and test of analog/mixed-signal integrated circuits including data converters, signal generation and signal processing circuits, and RF front-end electronics for a range of diverse applications. Understanding and pushing limits of circuit performance. Translating new concepts and theory into circuit implementations. Responsibilities involve all aspects of IC 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 in bipolar and FET technologies. Experience with laboratory test equipment and characterization of mixed-signal IC and devices is required, where validation of circuit concepts in a laboratory environment is encouraged. Experience with digital signal processing, applications of data converters and sampled data systems, and digital correction techniques are preferred. Digital design skills are also desirable. A strong mathematical background are preferred.
Knowledge Desired: Familiarity with semiconductor IC technologies. Understanding of circuit design techniques, semiconductor device physics, signal processing, control theory, and communications theory. Familiarity with low power and low noise design techniques. Use of typical IC design CAD environments including Cadence and behavioral level simulation tools such as Matlab/Simulink. A strong mathematical/analytical background is preferred.
Essential Physical/ Mental Requirements: Proficiency in use of computers, engineering work stations, verbal and written communication, interaction with customers/colleagues, and a deadline-driven/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. Must be able to obtain and maintain a security clearance. Active security clearance or current SSBI is a plus.
