Analog, RF and mmWave IC Designer

Apr 21, 2020


You have a M.Sc. or Ph.D. in electrical engineering and a solid expertise in analog, RF and/or mm-wave IC design with a silicon-proven industry track record. You worked with advanced CMOS technology nodes, preferably on high-speed wireless communication applications. You are eager to join a dynamic team developing products for next-generation 5G systems. You are a self-motivated, independent and efficient team member that has good communication skills and brings industrial IC design experience to the team.


We are looking for RFIC designers who own and contribute to several parts of the RFIC, including RF front-end, wideband analog and PLL circuits, overseeing layout work and take technical lead of small teams as required.

Responsibilities include:

  • design of analog and/or RF blocks (e.g., PA, LNA, mixer, divider, multiplier, VCO, PLL).
  • design of mm-wave passive structures (e.g., TL, transformer, power splitter/combiner);
  • design of GHz-range analog baseband amplification, filtering and buffering circuits;
  • implementation of ESD, DFT, DC, biasing and calibration blocks and methods;
  • Top-level chip design and system simulation.


The successful candidate has a proven industry track record with broad expertise in analog, RF and mm-wave IC design.

Following requirements are a must, candidates must tick all boxes to be considered:

  • degree in Electrical Engineering with at least 5 years of industrial experience in analog/RF/MMW IC design;
  • solid background in GHz analog, RF and/or mm-wave design;
  • DFT and PVT-aware design experience including biasing blocks (e.g., Bandgap, PTAT, LDO, etc.);
  • contribution to several successful product chips with analog/RF/MMW circuits;
  • advanced user of Cadence Virtuoso custom IC tool suite.

Following qualifications will make you stand out:

  • passive design experience (e.g., TL, transformer, power splitter/combiner);
  • experience with ADS, momentum, EMX, HFSS.
  • experience with ESD design and strategy, and with chip finishing (e.g., IO ring design);
  • experience with mixed-signal top-level simulation and verification;
  • knowledge of PDK development and skill coding;
  • experience with characterization and ATE data review and correlation to simulations;
  • experience with package modeling and interactions with packaging engineer
