In this role you will work closely with design engineers in the layout and verification of RF and analog integrated circuits for wireless consumer electronic products.
Position requires remote interfacing with domestic and international design engineering and layout teams, in multiple design centers, across multiple time zones. Position is available at the Irvine, CA design center.
•Minimum 8 years of experience in the layout of integrated circuits. Previous experience in the layout of power amplifiers and SAW and BAW filters strongly preferred.
•Basic understanding of SAW adn BAW filter operation required.
•Able to plan the placement of major circuit components in an overall physical design.
•Top level integration experience is also required.
•Previous experience in the preparation of layout data for release to foundry preferred
•Possess understanding of semiconductor processes like GaAs HBT and BiFET, CMOS and SOI processes and how the physical layout can affect circuit performance of circuits like power amplifiers and switches.
•Proven ability to perform layout vs. schematic (LVS) and design rule checks using the Cailbre verification tool and read electrical schematics and netlists.
•Proven experience and competent in using the following tools: Cadence and Calibre.
•Good communication skills both verbal and written.
•A self-starter and team player with ability to learn on the job
•Good mentoring skills
•Bachelor’s degree a plus
