DDR PHY Mixed-Signal Design Engineer (San Diego, US)
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. at http://www.qualcomm.com/about/businesses/qct
Engineering – Hardware
California – San Diego
Qualcomm’s DDR PHY team is currently seeking mixed-signal design engineer. who will be directly involved in architect design and system level analysis of high speed data/clock paths for latest LPDDR standards. Design goals include high-speed Rx/Tx and low power circuit design, to provide best-in-class performance, power, and area (PPA) solutions. **Responsibilities:** Architecture and design of high-speed Rx/Tx, clocking and low power circuits for LPDDR/4x @ 4.2gbps and LPDDR5 @ 6.4gbps. End-to-end system timing budgets, trade-offs for best PPA and design for yield. Exhaustive pre-silicon design validation flows, channel optimization, power delivery and signal/power integrity.
All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
+ Bachelor’s degree in Science, Engineering, or related field.
+ 2+ years ASIC design, verification, or related work experience
+ 7+ years of experience in analog and mixed-signal circuit design for high speed DDR PHYs in latest technology nodes. High speed Rx/Tx design techniques (like CLTE, DFE, pre-emphasis, etc.) and clocking circuits.
+ Experience with system level analysis of high speed off-choip DDR DRAMs interfaces (LPDDR4/4x & LPDDR5)
+ In-depth understaning of package and PCB and power delivery
+ Experience in latest process technology nodes.
+ Experience in custom schematic capture, layout and SPICE analysis
+ Good understanding or architecture, system and integration aspects for DDR PHYs
