Apple Analog Mixed/Signal IC Designer in Austin, Texas
Analog Mixed/Signal IC Designer
Perform transistor-level feasibility study and modeling for various analog/mixed-signal circuit blocks
Designing blocks and documenting design simulation and verification towards formal design reviews
Drive mask design to implement layout views of designs and drive layout reviews
Post-layout and top-level simulations to validate top-level integration
Run design verification flows (e.g., electro-migration, IR drop, LEC, timing, etc) to verify design is ready for tape-out
Participating in production and bench-level test plans
Taking lab measurements to validate performance compliance with the spec
Participating in reviewing yield/lab test results to drive bug fixes
The team member will have a strong knowledge of mixed-signal design techniques and understanding design trade-offs. A deep understanding of transistor operation and device physics as applied to analog and digital IC design. Possess strong circuit analysis skills (e.g., AC/DC circuit analysis, small signal circuit analysis, feedback loop theory, statistics, etc). A good knowledge of basic analog circuit building blocks (e.g., band-gaps, bias circuits, op-amps, switched-cap circuits, regulators, etc.) digital building blocks (e.g., latches, flip-flops, logic gates, etc.), and feedback/compensation techniques. Strong knowledge in digital circuit clocking, design, verification and analysis. You will know how to use of Cadence schematic and layout entry tool (Virtuoso). Spice simulation tools (e.g., HSpice, Spectre). Knowledge and/or experience in any of the following areas: High-speed circuits, Low power and low noise design techniques. High precision techniques in presence of device mismatch. Also, knowledge of C/Matlab/VerilogA modeling of AMS blocks. Know scripting languages (e.g., Perl, Python). Use of spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes, signal generators, etc. Static timing analysis.
