Company:Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Job Area:Engineering Group, Engineering Group > ASICS Engineering

Job Overview:

Qualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives. But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products. This is the Invention Age – and this is where you come in.


The increasing requirement for high performance devices in both the mobile and compute space requires continuous improvement and innovation in area of power delivery and signal integrity. The Qualcomm Advanced Package Design Team has an opening for a package architecture design engineer with particular expertise in the area of signal integrity and power integrity. This role is focused on innovating for future products. It requires out of the box thinking and using past experience and knowledge to create new solutions that are both evolutionary and in particular, revolutionary. Ability to seek out non-obvious solutions and willingness to buck well established trends are particularly desirable. Past experience should include work on actual package designs with understanding of how package process rules can introduce limitations in designing for power and signal integrity. The candidate should have hands on experience in PDN and SI analysis using the industry standard EM simulation tools – experience with varied tools preferred. The candidate is expected to work with package designers, electrical analysis engineers, process engineers as well as architecture and chip design teams across multiple organizations within Qualcomm. The role will include a mixture of PathFinding, electrical analyses, test package/chip designs, product designs (i.e. bringing new concepts all the way to production), presentation, documentation etc.Package performance must be analyzed and understood on the system level. For that reason, particular preference is given to the candidate who demonstrates broad knowledge and experience that expands beyond just packaging to other areas including PCB and phone designs, as well as basic knowledge of IC chip design. Additional Requirements:• Master’s or PhD degree in Electrical Engineering or equivalent experience• 4+ years of experience in SI/PI in Package Design related to mobile or compute designs• Experience in Electromagnetics and solid background on transmission line theory & Crosstalk • Proficiency in field solvers such as Ansys tools (HFSS, SIwave, Q3D), Cadence and similar tools • Experience in simulation tools such as ADS and Hspice • Hands on experience in package design using Cadence Allegro/APD/Sip or Mentor Xpedition• Experience in multi-chip packages, SiPs (System in Package) and modules• Experience in programming or scripting language (Perl/Python) is a plus• Experience in electrical analysis of end-to-end systems including PCB, package and IC• Experience in recent PDN trends: e.g. IPD caps• Experience with split die, 2.5D and 3D designs• Experience demonstrating a pattern of innovation in past projectsKeywords: Signal Integrity, Power Integrity, SIPI, PDN, package, design, co-design
