Duration: 12 months Contract on W2


Job Description

In this role, you will work closely with the RFIC design team to layout and verify custom RF and Analog IP for complex SoC products.

Key Qualifications

Experience in custom RF/Analog layout with extensive knowledge of deep sub-micron CMOS (7nm , 28nm, FinFET, etc.)

Knowledgable in layout techniques for device matching, minimizing parasitics, RF shielding, and high frequency routing

Solid understanding of RC delay, electromigration, and coupling

Understanding of guard rings, DNW, PN junctions, and advanced process effects such as LOD, WPE, etc.

High level proficiency in interpretation of CALIBRE DRC, ERC, LVS, etc.

Knowledge of CADENCE layout tools

Excellent communication skills and able to work with cross-functional teams

You would also have the following, if you're more experienced:

Capability to lead other layout engineers for top-level integration

Ability to recognize failure prone circuit and layout structures and proactively work with circuit designers for the best approach to resolve problems

Scripting skills in PERL or SKILL are a plus, but not required


As a RF layout engineer, you will be responsible for

  • Detailed transistor-level layout of RF and analog circuit blocks including LNA, mixers, PLL, LO generation, modulators, power amplifiers, ADC/DAC, baseband filters, and bandgap/bias/LDO.
  • Block level and top-level layout through full verification flow including extraction, DRC, LVS, and DFM checking
  • Co-work with designers on block level and top-level floorplanning
  • Layout review for power/gnd routing, electromigration, signal path check, differential and IQ matching, and signal coupling
  • Top-level layout integration and verification, schedule management
