High-Speed IC Design Engineer Luxtera
Responsible for design, layout, verification, and characterization of high-speed optical transceiver elements, TIAs, limiting amplifiers, I/Os, equalizers, high-speed CML, ring-oscillators, and other SerDes/CDR/PLL building blocks at data rates of 10Gb/s and higher. Will work as a part of a small IC design team in dynamic startup environment, taking an active role in design reviews, contributing to product definition, proposing and evaluating technical solutions, writing design specifications and test requirement documents, etc.
The ideal candidate is a results-oriented self-starter able to develop design specifications based on input from marketing, system architect, manufacturing, etc. and to take projects to completion with limited supervision and guidance, effectively managing his time and effort.
Education & Experience Requirements
M.S.E.E. with 5+ years of experience or Ph.D. with 2+ years of experience
Must have extensive experience with high-speed circuit design and layout in sub-micron CMOS (65nm or below is a plus) at data rates of at least 5Gb/s and/or RF circuits operating at 5GHz or above, taken from concept through production
Solid understanding of MOS devices backed by semiconductor physics fundamentals
Experience with design of analog and mixed-signal feedback control systems in the context of high-speed transceivers
Experience with precision analog and mixed-signal circuits is a plus
Proficient with Cadence design environment including Ocean scripting and mixed-signal simulations
Working knowledge of theoretical and practical aspects of passive electro-magnetic structures including transmission lines, spiral inductors, resonant circuits, etc. (HFSS experience is a plus)
Good understanding of high-speed layout considerations, such as parasitics, crosstalk isolation, supply and bias distribution, etc.
Demonstrated ability to test, troubleshoot, and characterize own designs
Fundamentals of IC manufacturing, reliability, yield, DFM, DFT, etc.
Demonstrated excellent problem solving skills
Must be willing to assume responsibility for a wide variety of technical tasks
Good communication and presentation skills
