In this role you will collaborate in the development of advanced analog integrated circuit designs using best-in-class Synopsys suite of tools. You will be working with local and global teams in developing layout for complex mixed-signal designs in the latest technology nodes. 

As a member of our Solutions IP Design Group, you will be developing IP in various technology nodes and foundries for different customers in a fast paced and exciting design environment.

Main Requirements:

  • Master´s or Bachelor´s degree in Electronic/ Electric engineering with a strong interest to be developed within the area.
  • Good understanding of basic electric rules (ie. resistance, capacitance, inductance)
  • Familiarity with silicon physical phenomena and basic active silicon devices behavior
  • A quick learner and a problem-solver
  • Good written and verbal English skills

Nice to have:

  • Familiarity with layout of analog and mixed signal CMOS circuits
  • 1+ year of a relevant work experience
  • Experience in the following layout design techniques:
  • Optimization for signal integrity (ie. clock/data routes, differential routing, shielding)
  • Implementation of ESD design constraints, latch-up risk mitigation
  • Familiarity with custom digital layout (logic cell layout and associated logic path routing)
  • Layout design for reliability (ie. EM, IR, etc…)
  • Design to optimize for parasitic layout effects (ie. matching, reliability, proximity effects, etc…)
  • Full custom analog layout design tool: Custom Compiler (or equivalent)
  • Verification tools: ICV, Calibre, Star-RCXT, PERC
  • Experience in working with Jira/Atlassian (or other such) tools
  • Exposure to scripting (ie. TCL, PERL, etc…)
