Title: IC Design Engineer (CDR/PLL/VCO Circuits)
Post by Dale Correa on May 4th, 2012, 9:24am

Our client, a designer and manufacturer of affordable high-performance components for high speed communications, offering the best in millimeter-wave engineering and high speed digital design, is currently seeking an IC Design Engineer at their corporate headquarters in the heart of Wine Country, Santa Rosa, Ca. This position will be responsible for specification, detailed design, circuit simulation, layout, verification, and testing of high-speed (10-40 GHz/Gbps) integrated CDRs, PLLs, VCOs, and phase detectors for telecom applications.  The ideal candidate will be experienced with broadband NRZ GHz/Gbps integrated circuit design techniques in both time and frequency domain applications.

As a basis for consideration, all interested applicants must possess the following qualifications:
•      Education level: MS in EE in the area of IC design for microwave high-speed analog/mixed-signal IC’s.
•      Expertise with the fundamentals of circuits, transmission lines, and phase-locked loops.
•      5 years’ experience developing integrated CDRs, PLLs, VCOs, and phase detectors.
•      Demonstrated expertise with circuit design tools (SPICE, ADS)
•      High level of proficiency in layout, DRC and LVS CAD tools.
•      Experience with time and frequency domain measurements for IC characterization.
•      Candidate must have designed and lab tested at least one physical, integrated or discrete PLL or CDR
•      Experience designing in a high speed SiGe BiCMOS technology is a plus.
•      Excellent communication, presentation, and documentation skills.

The IC Design Engineer is responsible for designing and developing next-generation products that meet all technical, budget, and time constraints. Duties include the following:
•      Design of high performance, broadband microwave integrated circuits for telecom applications.
•      Detailed circuit design of microwave broadband CDRs, VCOs, phase detectors and other high-speed mixed-signal circuits.
•      Circuit design of microwave broadband amplifiers, VCOs, PLLs, CDRs, DACs, equalizers.
•      Transistor level simulation, CAD layout, DRC, LVS.
•      Develop accurate device models for IC design.
•      Testing, trouble-shooting, evaluation of circuits.
•      Interface with engineering, marketing and packaging teams to assist in specification of IC and final product requirements.
•      Assist operations to ensure manufacturability of product designs.

Employment Status Criteria:
US Citizenship, Permanent Residence (Green card) status, or authorization to work in the US without sponsorship required.
