Principal ASIC Engineer

• Expert Analog ASIC Designer.

• Analyze system requirements and existing designs; define new circuits and mixed­signal architecture to improve performance.

• Design, simulate, implement and test analog and mixed­signal circuits and transistor level circuit design.

• Design and layout of ROIC unit cell level and chip level for LIDAR applications (28 nm through 130 nm).

• Responsible for creating evaluation models of LIDAR performance, including the application and use of 3D field solvers, understanding and mitigating analog and mixed­signal crosstalk issues, isolation of analog and digital circuits, understanding unit cell operation and mitigating supply and substrate crosstalk issues, supporting optimal clock tree design in layout.

• Support transition to mass production manufacturing.

Job Requirements        Requirements:

• BS/MS/PHD Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Physics.

• Min. 15 years of experience years experience in analog and mixed signal CMOS design, simulation, and layout.

• Solid understanding of low voltage mixed­signal design and high frequency low noise TIA amplifiers.

• Familiarity with ROIC design tradeoffs, particularly with very small signal currents from hybridized detectors.

• Fluent with a standard tool chain such as Cadence, Mentor Graphics, L­Edit, etc.

• Strong background with standard analog simulators such as PSPICE, HSPICE, Spectre, Eldo, and AMS simulation.

• High level modeling (e.g. MatLab) of mixed signal systems.

• Background in semiconductor production (testing, assembly, failure analysis).

• Demonstrated success with team­oriented environment.

• Good communication skills.
