IC (Mixed Signal) Design Engineer

Located in Irvine, CA or San Diego, CA


Be part of a unique team that designs high-performance ICs with RF, analog, mixed-signal and digital systems integrated on a single chip.  Your focus will be on the development of advanced analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters.  Your responsibilities will include:

  • ADC and DAC architecture choices based on high-level specifications
  • Design, implementation, and verification of mixed-signal circuits
  • Characterize and debug relevant blocks
  • Analyze the effects of non-idealities on circuit performance
  • Collaborate with system engineers to optimize circuit designs and system specification trade-offs

Required Skills:

  • Strong knowledge of mixed-signal circuit building-block design and simulation, such as, continuous-time analog filters, switched-capacitor circuits, data converters, reference generators and comparators.
  • Solid understanding of data converter concepts and ability to derive block requirements based on system specifications
  • Solid understanding of CMOS process and device physics
  • Understanding of semiconductor packaging
  • Hands-on experience testing your own designs in the lab

Required Experience:

  • Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering
  • Relevant academic project experience that includes more than one tape-out
  • Experience with Cadence Spectre/Spectre RF simulation tool.
  • Experience with MATLAB, Octive, MathCAD or similar modeling tool
