Job Description

Title: Data Converter System Engineer
Location: Hillsboro, OR (remote work)
Duration: FTE / Direct Hire

** Candidates must be current US residents with valid work authorization. **

Our client, a leader in the test-and-measurement, wireless communications, and cyber-security industries, has an immediate need for a highly motivated Data Converter System Engineer to join their team in designing the next generation data convertors for their world class test equipment. This is a small team environment in a great location that is very collaborative with close personal interactions. The selected individual will work with a highly qualified team of engineers, located both locally and abroad.

Your Role
As part of this team, you will have an opportunity to architect and work on many different modules within their devices and to work with leaders in the design of world class data converters . These devices integrate large high frequency (> 30 GHz) analog blocks along with complex digital blocks to create custom System on Chip (SoC) solutions. Your tasks will cover the entire spectrum of mixed signal development starting from conceptual work, through the design, layout, and characterization of the devices:
Responsible to develop cutting edge SoCs for communication systems according to customer specifications, finding optimum tradeoffs between system performance, power dissipation and cost.
Drive block specifications for design team.
Develop, run, and maintain data converter system MATLAB and Verilog models for an SoC across various usage modes.
Work with analog and digital implementation teams to ensure proper development of system designs.
Ability to simulate entire signal path, in a mixed-signal flow.
Create and own chip level simulations that verify data converter operating modes are implemented correctly.

This is what you need to be selected:
MS degree with 5 years of experience or a PhD degree with 3 years of experience.
Significant experience modeling data converters or radio systems in MATLAB.
Good knowledge of communication systems/standards and their application to different wireless and wire-line applications.
Deep understanding of design, simulation and measurements of high-speed ICs using CMOS and CML circuits in at least 3 areas below:
Digital-Analog Converters
Serializers and de-serializers
Wideband Output Drivers
High Performance Phase Locked Loops
Low Noise clock designs
Operational Amplifiers and Variable Gain Amplifiers
DSP Equalization and compensation techniques
Self-driven, ability to work independently while coordinating with IC designers.
You will need to be able to travel occasionally to European and U.S. locations.
Work effectively in a group setting (share expertise, provide and receive feedback, communicate technical issues, work in a team environment to resolve technical issues).

Desirable qualifications - The more of these that you have, the better fit within the team:
Experience performing mixed signal circuit design across analog and digital domains.
BiCMOS IC design experience
Experience with an Analog Design Flow (e.g. Cadence Virtuoso, Xcelium, AMS-Designer, Verilog-AMS, and Spectre).
SERDES transmitter and receiver design (e.g. CDR, DFE, CTLE, jitter modelling).
