EM Microelectronic is an innovative semiconductor company developing and manufacturing the world\'s leading technology platforms across everything ultra-low power, from low-power wireless to RFID, sensor interfaces and energy harvesting. EM\'s RFID Business has been recognized for its innovation and market leadership by the RFID Journal Live: \"Best product of the year award\" and Frost & Sullivan’s \"New product Innovation\" awards in 2020. To further strengthen the team, we are seeking an experienced analog/mixed-signal IC design engineer to participate in the design of new RFID ICs.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities
- Conceive transistor level circuit architecture, write specifications, and perform detailed design of low power RFID circuits such as: rectifiers, demodulators, modulators, amplifiers, oscillators, charge pumps and power management circuits.
- Confirm designs are robust against PVT and comply with full-chip performance specifications using detailed simulations including Monte Carlo and post layout with extracted parasitics.
- Creation and presentation of design documentation and design review material to peers and customers.
- Support the silicon validation process through test support and data analysis to confirm circuit performance.
- Develop analog behavioral models (SystemVerilog, Verilog AMS, etc.) to maximize simulation performance.
- Perform top level or full-chip AMS simulations.
- Team player with the ability to contribute to a multi-disciplinary team in a constructive and data-driven approach.
- Collaborate with colleagues in our European offices on design reviews and verification flows.
- MSEE from established university, BSEE with advanced EE coursework or practical experience.
- >5 years in analog and mixed-signal IC design working at the transistor level.
- Familiar with Cadence design tools such as Virtuoso, Spectre, and creating Config & Maestro views using the Cadence Library manager environment.
- Experience running AMS sims from a Maestro view or the Linux command line
Preferred additional experience:
- Low power analog and/or mixed-signal circuit design.
- Exposure to RFID circuits, including systems or protocols
- Experience designing and simulating RF circuits.
- Preparation of self-checking AMS test benches.
