We are looking for someone who has experience in designing and architecting custom readout integrated circuits (ROICs) in state of the art image sensors. As ROIC Architect, you will specify, architect, and design analog and digital integrated circuit designs for readout ICs.
The ROIC Architect will serve as primary technical point of contact representing ROIC expertise across multiple integrated program teams. In this capacity, responsibilities will include capturing requirements in formal documentation, interfacing with sub-contract design vendors, and leading design reviews. You will provide technical direction to ROIC design team while directly contributing to the design effort.
As a key member on a growing team, you will be involved in all aspects of design including block-level design and simulation, chip-level architecture and verification, layout and physical verification, and silicon validation and characterization. The ideal candidate will have ROIC-specific design experience and a demonstrated willingness to mentor other engineers.
Bachelor’s Degree and a minimum of 12 years of prior relevant experience. Graduate Degree and a minimum of 10 years of prior related experience.
Position requires the ability to obtain and maintain a DOD Security Clearance, which requires U.S. Citizenship.
Proven ability to understand system-level performance requirement and reduce to ROIC chip-level requirements
Design lead or architect on three or more ROICs
Experience designing two or more of: High speed differential I/O, A-to-D converters, bias generation, analog buffers, serializers, readout pixel unit cells
Custom layout of Analog and Digital ICs from the block level to the top level
Cadence Virtuoso and Mentor Calibre verification software
Integrated circuit and electronics test and debug
Knowledge of common image artifacts and contributing factors
Knowledge of non-uniformity sources and correction methods, 3-D noise analysis
Experience with large, stitched-die designs is a plus
Familiarity with camera electronics and software
Documentation, communication and analysis skills
Preferred Additional Skills:
Experience with large, stitched-die designs
