Job description

As an RFIC intern you will work under the direction of our RFIC design leader to develop circuits critical to ultra-low power SOCs.  Our market-leading ICs make consumers’ daily lives easier to navigate in connected smart products, healthcare, automotive and other applications.

As an RFIC design intern, you will learn and work on modern CAD tools to design and implement state-of-the-art low-power RF circuits in advanced process nodes such as LNAs, PAs, mixers, filters, VCOs, buffers, or related circuitry. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Analysis and comparison of different circuit topologies for a given set of specifications
  • Schematic design and simulation of the required circuit over PVT corners
  • Layout of the circuit with the support of EM layout engineers
  • Extraction of layout parasitics and resimulation over PVT to ensure the circuit meets the required specifications, and modify the design as needed
  • Document and present your design in a design review to a group of EM engineers
  • Characterize your circuit or others, with the support of EM validation engineers


Background requirements:

  • Enrolled in a Master or PhD program in IC design
  • A bachelor\'s degree in Electrical Engineering with strong grades

Professional requirements

Demonstrated interest in analog circuit design:

  • Relevant school project with a report on results
  • Performing work or research for University professor or another IC design company
  • Other related extra curricular activities including student membership in the IEEE or other professional organizations

The following skills are expected:

  • Strong interest in learning for a career in RF IC design
  • Independent learner with good research skills
  • Demonstrated project success while working in a team environment


English native or fluent oral and written

Any other language (especially French or German) would be an asset
