Analog/Mixed Signal IC Design Engineer

Houston, TX at Samaritan Technical Professionals

This is a leading company that develops ICs for medical devices.

This is a Staff level position.  It involves making contributions to and active involvement in aspects of IC design for general purpose blocks for Neuro Technology and other products  including IP level circuit development, circuit verification and circuit design and simulation, layout floor-planning, and documentation.  This position reports to the Director of IC Design.

§  Design and Verification of mixed-signal IC functional IP blocks for implantable medical products.

§  Involved with and provide some leadership in all aspects of IC design including concept/specification development, design partitioning, block level design, detailed circuit design, circuit simulation, layout floor-planning, transistor level layout, bench verification and testing, test-vector development, and documentation.

§  Design very low-power, low-voltage analog IC functional blocks including voltage/current references, operational amplifiers, comparators, switched-capacitor circuits (amplifiers, filters, charge pumps, etc.), ADCs and DACs, oscillators, switching power circuits, etc.

§  Using MatLab, to perform theoretical analysis of behavioral level and system level design ideas for mixed signal circuits and systems including circuit implementation

§  Collaborate and work effectively with other members of the IC design group and with teams in other design centers.

EDUCATION / EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS:

  • BS/MS degree in Electrical Engineering with 5-10 years’ experience in mixed analog/digital IC design is preferred.
