Senior Mixed Signal Design Engineer Vacancy | NVIDIA Careers



SENIOR MIXED SIGNAL DESIGN ENGINEER

Job ID 1437120
Location US, CA, Santa Clara

Description
SENIOR MIXED SIGNAL DESIGN ENGINEER #1437120

Architecture and design of CMOS high-speed chip interfaces (PCIE, DDR3 or HDMI) and other analog functions such as Sigma Delta ADC and DAC. Strong hands-on experience in the lab with silicon evaluation, debugging, characterization, and bring up.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
- Design and implementation of high speed interfaces and analog circuits.
- Circuit Design Projects may include working with high speed interfaces, high speed frequency synthesis PLLs.
- Design, simulate, and verify analog and complex mixed-signal CMOS circuits.
- Supervise closely IC Circuit / Mask designers, provide floor plan and layout guidelines.
- Support debug and characterization of design.
- If you have a strong ability to learn and explore new technologies and are able to demonstrate good analysis and problem solving skills, this is the ideal position for you.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS:
- MS or Phd in Electrical Engineering.
- 6+ years deep sub-micron process design experience ( < 90nm) in CMOS Analog / Mixed Signal Circuit Design.
- Demonstrated experience in designing and mentoring designers in biasing circuits, band gap references, regulators, op-amps, ADC, DAC and PLL blocks.
- Requires strong fundamental understanding of transistor level analog design concepts and deep submicron processes / technology.
- Interpolators, spread spectrum, high speed PLL / DLLs and timing related circuitry as well as clock path and buffer optimization for optimum area efficiency and high speed operation.
- Experience in one or more of these high speed interfaces (serial link, GDDR5), digital links such as HDMI, LVDS, DVI, PCIE, USB or high performance (16bits) Sigma Delta ADC/DACs.
- You will also need a good understanding of Cadence's custom IC design environment, analog circuit simulation (HSpice, HspireRF), Finesim, XA, verilog. Programming language skills (Perl) as well as digital design skills are a plus.
- Candidate must demonstrate a substantial background in pertinent project work and demonstrate deep/intimate understanding and knowledge of high-speed data communication and relevant circuit concepts.
