Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuit Designer

Introduction

Your Role and Responsibilities
IBM is seeking a Mixed-signal integrated circuit designer to work at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY.

In this role, you will contribute to the development of innovative integrated circuits implemented in deep submicron CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) technologies. We focus on circuit designs that enable the creation of differentiated solutions for a range of mixed-signal and high-frequency challenges. Key areas of interest include PLL design, custom mixed-signal integrated circuit design, power-efficient high-speed I/O circuit and macro-level design and experience with industry-standard integrated circuit design tools. Further key areas include understanding of and experience with co-integration of analog and digital circuit elements as well as experience with industry standard design tools. Familiarity with and experience in mixed-signal design verification, circuit test, and hardware/firmware implementation of AI algorithms or signal processing algorithms are a plus. This job will also entail driving the development of new intellectual property and will require strong collaboration with other members of our design teams.

As a successful candidate, you will:
• Have experience with relevant industry-standard development tools such as Cadence
• Possess a track record of success in completing complex integrated circuit designs
• Collaborate well with a multi-disciplinary team
• Work independently
• Take initiative
• Possess proven writing and presentation skills
• Successfully create and communicate technical ideas

Responsibilities will include innovative circuit design, simulation, layout and/or layout oversight, power reduction/optimization, verification, and hardware evaluation.
• Minimum of a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering or a related area is required.

Required Professional and Technical Expertise
Mixed-signal integrated circuit design in deep submicron technology: 2 years
Mixed analog-digital design and verification: 2 years
Experience with integrated circuit design tools (e.g. Cadence environment): 2 years

Preferred Professional and Technical Expertise
Ph.D. Degeree in Electrical Engineering
Experience with the design of high-frequency, low-noise frequency synthesizers
Knowledge of programming languages such as C and Python for automated tests
Experience with VHDL/Verilog and logic synthesis
Familiarity with existing learning based algorithms (AI) and their hardware/software implementation
Familiarity with FPGA-based implementations of digital control and signal processing function
