Join us at Maxim Integrated. With analog integration, the possibilities are endless.

Maxim is seeking a results oriented digital IC design engineer to architect and design high speed SERDES products. The candidate will be responsible for design and verification of high-speed and low power digital circuits using state-of-the-art IC design methodologies and flows, which include architecture specification, multi-clock domain RTL design and verification, synthesis, static timing analysis, DFT (Design for Test), chip integration, and post silicon debugging.
The Colorado Springs Design Center develops high speed integrated circuits. As a design engineer on this team, you work in a team developing industry leading connectivity solutions for the automotive market. The products are developed in fine line CMOS technologies. You participate in the development from development of concepts and specifications through release to production.
Responsibilities are:

  • Architecting and specifying digital sections of complex mixed signal ICs, including high speed serial interfaces and solutions for routing and aggregation of video data

  • RTL design

  • Test bench development

  • Functional verification

  • Timing analysis

  • Power consumption and power integrity analysis

  • Guiding the physical design and DFT efforts for your designs

  • Assisting production test development for your designs

  • Ensuring that sound design and verification methodology is followed


  • B.S. E.E/M.S. E.E., 5-10+ years of experience
  • Experience in the Design and Verification of complex digital blocks
  • Protocol knowledge and design experience with PCIe
  • Understanding of the complete digital design flow – from specification to silicon
  • Verification of mixed signal systems – including behavioral modeling and UVM
  • Understanding of digital communications, high speed serial links and video transport
  • Silicon bring-up in the lab
  • Understanding of digital logic design principles
  • Knowledge of SystemVerilog hardware description language
  • Gate level simulations
  • Good understanding of verification methodologies
  • Experience creating SDC timing constraints


  • Experience with EDA tools such as:

    • Cadence: Incisive/Xcelium, Simvision, Conformal LEC and ECO, Emanager/Vmanager

    • Synopsys: VCS, Design Compiler, Primetime

    • RealIntent: Lint, CDC

  • Knowledge of SerDes protocols

  • Knowledge of scripting tools

  • Experience with logic synthesis

  • Protocol Knowledge (MIPI DPHY,CPHY,DSI,CSI, Ethernet, RGMII, HDMI, HDCP, DSC, DisplayPort, I2C, SPI, UART, AHB, APB)

  • Experience implementing RTL designs in FPGA

  • Knowledge of image and video processing

  • Knowledge of design for test, functional safety

  • Knowledge of low power design principles. Specifying low power design intent in UPF/CPF.
