Job Description:

This position is part of a team tasked with the development of high speed CMOS analog, mixed signal, and custom digital circuits that comprise our leading-edge SerDes IPs.


Design, prelayout, and postlayout verification of circuits to be used as part of state-of-the-art integrated NRZ and PAM4 SerDes, including
  • PLLs, VCOs
  • Clock and data recovery circuits
  • High speed clock distribution networks
  • Rx Continuous-Time Linear Equalizers and Decision-Feedback Equalizers
  • TX drivers and serializers
  • Data converters
This position includes
  • Developing circuit schematics, perform detailed layout reviews and perform all necessary verification/simulations.
  • Optimizing circuits in high speed paths of the SerDes for low jitter and low power.
  • Conducting design reviews and create slides and other associated documentation.
  • Assisting with integration of SerDes IP into SOCs
  • Providing guidance to validation engineers in initial bring-up, debug, and characterization of chips using SerDes IP.
Knowledge and Expertise:
  • The position requires experience with designing high-speed custom analog and digital circuits for SerDes IP, or for a candidate with a graduate degree, a concentration of study in high-speed analog and mixed-signal integrated circuit design.
