RFIC Design Engineer

Description:  This engineer will be responsible for the design and development of SOI RFICs for mobile handset applications. The candidate will work with a group of analog/RF IC design experts in development of cellular-band RFICs that have stand-alone or integrated LNA cores, RF switches, attenuators, controller, and various RF and analog functional blocks. The candidate will interface with system engineers and module design teams to create the detailed specification, report design progress, and to collect, track, and resolve any performance and circuit design issues.

Job Requirements:
The candidate must be experienced in transistor-level CMOS or SOI RFIC design. He/she must understand the basic device physics, have the ability to develop and use advanced linear and nonlinear models or simulation techniques and be able to translate between the model, simulation, physical implementation, and the measured performance of a device. Good RF and microwave engineering knowledge is required in order to optimize RF performance of the RFIC. This job also requires experience in simulation tools, analog and RF circuit test characterization techniques and equipment. This person must have good communication skills, be able to break down complex problems, set priorities, report progress, execute to a schedule, and have strong people skills. #LI-DB1
The candidate should possess the following degree and years of related industrial experience:  BS + 5 years.  MS + 3 years or PhD preferred. The candidate should also have experience using Cadence analog IC design tools and hands-on experience with lab measurements and characterization equipment. Experience in RF circuit design and test equipment is valuable.
