RF IC Design Engineer - South East UK
This job has now expired
Working at both the IC architecture and circuit level using deep sub-micron CMOS to design future generation synthesiser sub-systems for multi-standard radios.
The role will be primarily for a circuit designer/silicon architect focussing on high performance frequency synthesis. The goal is to deliver leading edge / breakthrough performance in terms of key metrics such as phase noise, spurious performance and lock time while meeting aggressive power dissipation targets.
You will have a good understanding of a range of techniques for frequency synthesis including non-linear (constant envelope/polar) modulators, sigma-delta techniques as well as emerging digitally intensive approaches.
You will work closely with system engineers on the optimisation of the system and specification of frequency synthesis blocks.
You will be a strong team player able to operate as both an innovator and an implementer. You will participate in multi-site developments across different time zones and cultures requiring excellent written and verbal communication skills.
You will also have a strong record of innovation demonstrated through product performance, patents or other publications. This would show you to be a genuine "practical innovator" capable of delivering break through new technology within a commercial environment.
Extensive experience of synthesiser design including overall architecture development and key circuits for fully integrated designs is essential.
You will possess a good understanding of synthesiser architectures (e.g. fractional-M, integer-N, multi-loop designs) as well as understanding RF system requirements for cellular systems. Experience of analysis and modelling of synthesiser systems would be extremely beneficial.
Experience with the Cadence Analog Design Environment is essential and experience with advanced circuit simulation tools and EM simulation tools (e.g. Verilog-AMS, Matlab) is strongly desirable.
Must have a minimum of 5-7+ years of equivalent experience e.g. MSc + 5 years (e.g. a minimum of 2 preferably at least 3 completed industrial developments) or relevant a PhD + 2 relevant industrial project (>3-4 years)
BSc / MSc EE (or equivalent) minimum with relevant experience or PhD in a relevant discipline.
Competitive salary £42k - £60k depending on skills and experience. Excellent benefits package including 25 days holiday, bonus scheme, pension, medical, stock options and relocation assistance if required.
