Job Description:

At Synopsys, we're at the heart of the innovations that change the way we work and play. Self-driving cars. Artificial Intelligence. The cloud. 5G. The Internet of Things. These breakthroughs are ushering in the Era of Smart Everything. And we're powering it all with the world's most advanced technologies for chip design and software security. If you share our passion for innovation, we want to meet you.Our Silicon IP business is all about integrating more capabilities into an SoC-faster. We offer the world's broadest portfolio of silicon IP-predesigned blocks of logic, memory, interfaces, analog, security, and embedded processors. All to help customers integrate more capabilities. Meet unique performance, power, and size requirements of their target applications. And get differentiated products to market quickly with reduced risk. Senior Analog Design EngineerWe're looking for a Staff Analog Design Engineer to join our team.Does this sound like a good role for you?In this role, you will work on the design, development, and refinement of Multi-Gbps NRZ & PAM4 SERDES IP. You will be part of a fast-growing analog and mixed signal R team developing high speed analog integrated circuits in the latest FinFET process nodes. Working from SerDes standards to block specifications, you quickly identify potential circuit architectures and successful design strategies. You will work with a cross functional design team of analog and digital designers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our environment is best in class with a full suite of IC design tools supplemented by custom, in-house tools supported by an experienced software/CAD team. Preferred ExperienceReview SerDes standards to develop novel transceiver architectures and sub-block specificationsInvestigate and develop circuit architectures that address architectural bottlenecks and lead to revolutionary improvements in power, area and performance targetsWork across project and department teams to streamline design and verification strategies ensure overall design quality, efficiency and performanceOversee physical layout to minimize the effect of parasitics, device stress, and process variationPresent & review simulation data from internal project teams. Present results externally at industry panels or at customer reviewsDocument design features and test plansConsult on the overall electrical characterization of the SerDes IP product. Analyze customer silicon data for design enhancements. Propose solutions for post-silicon design updatesKey QualificationsPhD with 8+ years, or MSc with 10+ years of practical analog IC design experience; degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering or other relevant field of studyIn depth familiarity with transistor level circuit design - sound CMOS design fundamentalsExtensive design experience with most sub-circuits relevant to SerDes:receive equalizers, samplers, voltage/current-mode drivers, serializers, deserializers, voltage-controlled oscillator, phase mixer, delay-locked loop, phase locked loop, bandgap reference, ADC, DACKnowledge of SerDes, circuit and fabrication issues that directly impact customer use-casesAware of ESD issues (i.e. circuit techniques, layout)Familiarity with custom digital design (i.e. high-speed logic paths)Experience with analog/digital interactions for optimizing circuit performance (calibration, adaptation, timing-handoff, etc)Knowledge of design for reliability (i.e. EM, IR, aging, etc.) and layout effects (i.e. matching, reliability, proximity effects, etc.)Experience with tools for schematic entry, physical layout, and design verificationKnowledge of SPICE simulators and simulation methodsKnowledgeable in Verilog-A for analog behavioral modeling and simulation-control/data-captureExperience with TCL, Perl, C, Python, MATLAB, or other scripting languages is desiredExcellent communication, presentation, and documentation skillsInclusion and Diversity are important to us.
