Mixed Signal Verification Engineer

Essex, UK


The Company

A leading semiconductor company specialising in innovative power management and precision analog solutions.

The Role

  • You will be responsible for the definition and implementation of industry leading mixed signal verification methodology.
  • You will work in a cross-functional international team of highly skilled and results driven engineers of different disciplines, and effective communication is a key attribute here.
  • The overall goal is to continue to develop and apply industry leading mixed signal verification methodology primarily by applying relevant digital verification techniques to mixed signal verification challenges.
  • Take a lead role in defining and implementing industry leading mixed signal verification methodology, including
  • Development of efficient mixed signal models using state of the art techniques
  • Development of sophisticated mixed signal testbenches that leverage digital verification techniques to address mixed signal challenges
  • Definition and implementation of mixed signal tests that optimally address the risks inherent in aggressive mixed signal IC development
  • Working closely with architects, designers and test engineers throughout project cycles to ensure that mixed signal verification effectively complements other project activities.

The Individual

  • BSc and relevant industry experience, either in mixed signal design or digital/mixed signal verification
  • Strong problem solving ability, being able to both leverage existing knowledge effectively and also learn new tools/techniques where needed
  • Good communication skill, in particular the ability to effectively work in cross disciplinary teams, and adapt to dynamic development Environment
  • Knowledge of digital or mixed verification techniques, with an open mind on how they can be applied
  • Some familiarity with the Cadence Analog Design Environment, ideally using the AMS simulator
  • Understanding of mixed signal IC development risks, including interface issues, modelling strategies etc.
  • Experience developing behavioural models of mixed signal Systems
  • Basic understanding of analog circuits with an emphasis on analog power circuits, voltage references, current references, LDOs, DC/DC converters, etc.
