Engineering – Hardware
California – San Diego
The Qualcomm Package Electrical Team has an opening in the areas of signal integrity and power integrity. The candidate will work with package and IC designers to find ways to optimize the overall package design. The candidates responsibility is working with substrate designers to make sure all system level constraints are met prior to the package Tape-out. The candidate is expected to communicate with Phy owners to understand the Specs for various IPs such as PCIe, UFS, USB, MIPI, LPDDR, etc, and also with PCB designers to assess the impact of Ball assignment to the system level performance. This position offers the opportunity to work across multiple organizations such as Phy team, PCB team and PSIG and providing timely feedback and updating design guideline to the team is essential.
The following is typical responsibility:
– Perform package extraction for the time domain and frequency domain analysis
– Perform system-level analysis for DDR, SerDes & Mixed signal interfaces
– Provide design guidelines for the Package design
– Develop design & analysis flow and automate the process
– Create technical documentation and presentations
All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
