KLA is seeking a talented and motivated senior engineer to fill new position within the Electrical Engineering group.

Our designs employ cutting edge combination of low noise analog to highly complex digital signal circuits, which are enabling our leading technology in the advancing semiconductor industry.

The candidate will be responsible for designs from gathering requirements through production and release.

The main job responsibilities would include:

  • requirements specification including definition of all interfaces
  • feasibility studies
  • cost and scheduling
  • conducting various analysis, such as circuit, timing, thermal/cooling, electrical loads and FPGA modeling
  • conceptual and detailed design using design tools (OrCAD, PSpice, Xilinx FPGA development systems, etc...)
  • detailed PCB drawings
  • design review presentations
  • PCB layout
  • procurement of prototype parts
  • system integration
  • prototype testing
  • release and handoff to manufacturing

These tasks will require working with other engineering groups such as ME, OE, SW, systems and manufacturing engineers to ensure flawless integration and test at the subsystem and system level.


The candidate needs to have a strong knowledge of:

  • Linear and mixed signal design
  • Strong knowledge of op-amp circuits, including noise analysis
  • High speed digital design
  • FPGA design and implementation
  • CCD sensors and image acquisition
  • Use of schematic capture and design simulation tools (OrCAD, PSpice, LTspice…)
  • Experience in using electronics laboratory equipment (oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzer...)

The candidate must be motivated, self-driven, independent and to possess excellent oral and written communication skills to successfully collaborate with our accomplished engineering team.
