Analog Circuit Designer / Mixed-Signal Circuit Designer

Location: Germany/Bavaria alternatively Slovakia


* Implementation of analogue and mixed-signal integrated circuit modules used in wireless semiconductor or power products based on existing system specification
* Definition of concept, Understanding of customer system requirements
* Circuit topology knowledge, Circuit design and SPICE simulation of e.g. operation amplifiers (folded-cascode Amp, fully differential Amp with common-mode feedback, Amp’s frequency compensation, multi-stage Amps), precision bandgap voltage or current references, current biasing of analogue circuits, PLL clock synthesizer devices, high, mixers or LNA RF amplifiers
* Low power/low voltage analog design techniques, Noise Optimization of analogue circuits
* Analog/Digital-Signal circuit simulation (SPICE) on transistor, block as well as  system top-level using Cadence design environment or Tanner/Mentor Design flow
* Understanding of data converter architectures and working principles would be a benefit:
Nyquist Switched-Capacitor (SC) ADC conversion, and oversampling Sigma-Delta ADC (A/D converters) with noise shaping, current-steering DAC cells (D/A converters)
* Behavioural modelling of designed blocks (VerilogA, VHDL-AMS) or signal processing in MATLAB
* Guidance and supervision of the layout mask engineer (understanding of matching properties and parasitic R/L/C elements)
* Development of test concept and support of test program development
* Lab characterisation and debugging of modules and the IC product

Qualifications  (professionals or graduates)

* University: Master or PhD degree in Electrical Engineering or Semiconductor Technology
* Main focus on analogue circuit design, communications, microelectronics or semiconductor physics
* Knowledge of nano-meter CMOS/FinFET technologies, semiconductor devices (MOS & bipolar transistor) or high frequency RF electronics
* Hands-on experience with Analog/Mixed-Signal IC design flow from System specification to Chip TapeOut, circuit SPICE simulation and lab analysis/measurements
* CAD skills: Cadence, Mentor Graphics/Tanner or Synopsys design environment: schematic entry, SPICE-based circuit simulators, physical layout design and DRC/ERC/LVS layout verification in Assura, Calibre, Galaxy, post-layout simulation and debugging
* Unix/Linux skills required
* Experience with internet-based home office working (TeamViewer or WebEx meetings)
