Areas of Responsibility

and precision analog circuits. As an Analog Layout Engineer, you are passionate about CMOS IC Mask layout incorporating efficient, well-matched, and low offset layout techniques. Circuits covered include linear and switching voltage regulators, high speed A/D and D/A data converters, PLLs, comparators, op-amps, and control logic circuits. You will be familiar with ratio-matching, IR drop, and noise coupling as they relate to analog layout.  Responsibilities will cover floor planning, physical layout, routing, verification, and final tapeout.

The ideal candidate will be familiar with backend verification tools and will have a good understanding of DRC/LVS/ERC/ANT, extraction of parasitic devices, and integration of digital and analog blocks. Device physics knowledge is a strong plus. The candidate must be able to handle the complexities associated with best layout for lowest cost and maximize silicon area usage.
