Analog ASIC Design Engineer

ID:  1728
Function:  Engineering

Agoura Hills, CA, US

Organization & Role

Teradyne’s Semiconductor Test Division in Agoura Hills, CA is looking for an enthusiastic candidate for the position of Semiconductor Design Engineer, to design high-speed analog circuits in mixed-signal ASICs for ATE (Automatic Test Equipment) instruments. We are looking for a candidate with CMOS design and layout experience who has successfully taped-out several designs.  


  • Develop detailed circuit specifications for mixed signal circuits
  • Conceive circuit architectures and transistor level circuit topologies that satisfy required performance
  • Provide guidance for physical implementation (layout) of high-speed circuits
  • Optimization of circuits via simulation (with Cadence EDA tools) over all process and operating conditions
  • Integration of circuit elements into large analog/mixed signals ASICs
  • Participation in the characterization and test of ASICs

Basic Qualifications & Skills

  • MSEE or PhD in electrical engineering with experience in the design and characterization of multiple, high frequency and high scale of integration mixed signal integrated circuits
  • CMOS FinFET (16nm or lower) design experience is a plus
  • Thorough knowledge of high frequency, broad-band Analog Mixed-Signal IC design – both electrical and physical design
  • Desired experience in design of VCOs, PLLs, DLLs, ADCs, DACs, clock and data recovery, broadband amplifiers, bias generators, clock distribution networks, high frequency I/Os and/or high frequency CML designs
  • Solid understanding of CMOS semiconductor device physics and device modeling
  • Solid understanding of electromagnetic theory
  • Solid understanding of thermal effects of various circuit topologies
  • Involvement in all phases of multiple IC developments from specification to product introduction
  • Proficiency in Verilog or Verilog-A modeling is a plus
  • Solid understanding and experience with IC characterization at high frequencies using high speed sampling oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, VNAs, signal sources
  • Solid understanding of PDKs
