Job Overview Qualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives. But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products. This is the Invention Age and this is where you come in. Qualcomm Corporate R&D RFIC design team is currently seeking experienced millimeter-wave, RF and mixed-signal IC designers to develop next generation communication systems for 5G and beyond 5G. This role will include system level analysis, behavioral simulation and IC design using innovative architectures to deliver best-in-class performance. Of particular importance will be design experience of direct conversion transceivers and phased arrays. Individuals in this role will be expected to:

Work closely with systems engineer on block-level specifications

Perform a transistor-level design of key blocks of Ka/V/W-band transceivers such as power amplifier, low noise amplifier, mixer, phase shifter, synthesizer, ADC and DAC in CMOS, CMOS-SOI and/or SiGe BiCMOS.

Write design review documents

Perform layout design of the assigned block with assistance of shared layout design resources

Extract layout parasitics using LPE/XRC and EM modeling tools

Participate in top-level simulations, verifications and tape out

Perform package level or probe level testing of the assigned block

All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.MinimumQualificationsBachelor's degree in Science, Engineering, or related field.

5+ years ASIC design, verification, or related work experience.

PreferredQualifications3+ years of millimeter wave or microwave RFIC design and verification in SiGe or nanometer scale (65nm and below) CMOS technologies using Cadence tools

Experience in transistor level millimeter wave or RFIC and analog/mixed-signal design including blocks of frequency synthesizer/phase lock loop, TX modulator and driver amplifier or power amplifier, RF filters, downconverter and low noise amplifier.

Experience with RFIC design for 3GPP standard wireless technologies including UMTS, LTE and 5G NR

Hands-on knowledge of Cadence EDA tools and EM modeling tools

Ability to work with RF test equipment in the lab

Proven track record of successfully transition designs into production
