Analog/Mixed-Signal Design Engineer
Company: Apple Inc.
Posted on: June 10, 2021
Would you like to join Apple's growing wireless silicon
development team? The wireless RFIC team architects, designs, and
validates radio transceivers integrated into complex wireless SoCs.
Our wireless organization is responsible for all aspects of
wireless silicon development that transform the user experience at
the product level, all of which is driven by a best-in-class
vertically integrated engineering team spanning RF/Analog
architecture and design, Systems/PHY/MAC architecture and design,
VLSI/RTL design and integration, Emulation, Design Verification,
Test and Validation, and FW/SW engineering. As an AMS design
engineer, you will be at the center of a wireless SoC design group
with a critical impact on getting Apple's state-of-the-art wireless
connectivity solutions into hundreds of millions of products.
- Typically requires at least MS + 4 years of experience or a PhD
in the area of Analog / Mixed-Signal IC design with advanced CMOS
technology nodes. We are open to multiple experience levels.
- Deep understanding of analog and mixed signal circuit
- Solid background and knowledge in bandgaps, biasing circuits,
op-amp design, switched-cap circuits, LDOs, feedback and
- Direct tape out experience with one or more of the following
blocks: ADCs and DACs, PLLs, baseband filters and amplifiers.
- Experience in wireless SoC products is desirable.
- Deep understanding of analog design concepts such as analysis
of noise, linearity, mismatch, stability and other analog
- Deep understanding of CMOS device physics, device modeling,
device noise parameters.
- Familiarity with packaging effects, supply isolations, high
frequency ESD structures, and circuit layout for optimum
- Open to work with digital design group for an optimum partition
between digital and analog domain.
- Familiarity with the integration flows and integration
challenges of wireless SoCs.
- Familiarity with mixed-signal mode verification methodology
(SystemVerilog, AMS, Nanotime).
As an AMS design engineer, you will be a key member of an RFIC
design team, researching, designing and bringing the
next-generation wireless SoCs into high-volume production at
advanced CMOS technology nodes. Responsibilities include: - Design
of analog and mixed-signal blocks inside the radio, starting from
concept and transistor-level feasibility studies. - Overseeing the
layout and verifying the design to ensure a successful tape-out. -
Testing the design and debugging the issues that may arise from
early development stages through productization. - Work with
platform architects, system groups and digital design groups to
define the requirements for RF and baseband blocks based on the
system requirements. - Work with the technology team to understand
the capabilities and limits of the technology node to achieve the
optimum performance. - Participate in defining bench bring-up and
test plans for validation and characterization of designs into mass
production. - Provide guidance on analog and mixed-signal design
issues across Apple.
