**Job Id** T1954181

**Job Title** High-Speed Analog & Mixed-Signal PHY Design Careers @ Qualcomm (San Diego, CA)

**Company-Division** Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

CDMA Technology at http://www.qualcomm.com/about/businesses/qct

**Job Area** Engineering – Hardware

**Location** California – San Diego

**Overview** Qualcomm’s Mixed-Signal design team is actively looking for senior analog and mixed-signal PLL circuit designers to work on SerDes and DDR PHY designs. You will be directly involved in delivering next-generation PHY designs for SoCs and will be part of a growing PLL team involved in architecture analysis in leading-edge CMOS process technology nodes at 28nm and beyond. Design goals also include low-power analog designs to address Qualcomm’s low-power wireless products.


Qualifications in the following areas are required:

– A *minimum* of 2 years of transistor level analog PLL design experience, preferably for high-speed SerDes and DDR PHY applications.

– Experience in designing op-amps, band gaps, differential amplifiers, VCO, PLL, DLL

– Experience in using SPICE simulators (Cadence Analog Artist experience is preferred).

– Experience using schematic capture tools (Virtuoso preferred).

– Signal integrity in high speed wireline design

– Shell scripting to automate circuit design and verification work

– Full-custom analog layout techniques and the ability to take a design and do all the layout extract verification and sign-off

Additional qualifications in the following areas are a plus:

– Understanding of process effects on designs and layout is required.


The primary responsibility of this position entails working within a team to deliver analog and mixed-signal transistor level PLL circuit designs along with the physical layouts of the high speed circuits for high-speed, low-power PHY SerDes blocks.

**Education Requirements** Required: Master’s, Electrical Engineering
