Malibu, CA, USA Req #29
Monday, July 15, 2019
EDUCATION DESIRED: BS or MS., Electrical Engineering

ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS: Experience in Cadence Virtuoso layout design flow and worked in high performance analog CMOS/BICMOS layouts including block level and chip level layout requirements. Understanding of parasitic impact on circuit performance, mask-reticle implementation is a plus. Capable of top level floor planning of blocks and knowledge of transistors, capacitors, and resistors in sub-micron process.

EXPERIENCE DESIRED: At least 3 years as IC physical layout with ability to: • Capability to communicate effective with circuit designers and flow down the layout design requirements. • Understand CAD tools: Cadence Virtuoso, Calibre DRC/LVS/LPE, Assura. • Thorough understanding of deep sub-micron layout designs practices such as metal density rules, transistor and capacitor matching. • Ability to resolve LVS/DRC errors. • Parasitic extraction and layout optimization. • Experience with layout of custom devices (eg. transistors, diodes, resistors, capacitors, MEM structures) • Experience with full custom analog IC layout and high frequency RF IC layout

KNOWLEDGE DESIRED: • Familiarity with semiconductor IC technologies (e.g., SiGe BiCMOS, deep sub micron CMOS (FinFET and FDSOI), and III-V technologies (GaN, InP, etc.). • Strong background in performing full custom analog, mixed-signal and RF IC layout. • Full custom circuit, block, and chip layout using Cadence Virtuoso tools, Layout L/XL, and physical verification tools Assura and Calibre • Capable of customizing/generating standard cells for automated digital design flows • Familiarity with Linux workstation environment • Familiarity with electromagnetic (EM) impact on layout is a plus

ESSENTIAL PHYSICAL/MENTAL REQUIREMENTS: Proficiency in use of computers, engineering work stations, complex electronic equipment, oral and written communication, interaction with vendors/colleagues and willingness to work in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment. Ability to work well in a team and independently. Self-starter with the ability to take ownership of projects, keep them well organized, and drive them to completion.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: U.S. citizenship is required. Must be able to obtain and maintain a security clearance. Active SSBI is a plus.
