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.
Qualcomm’s Power Management Systems team leads the industry in the system architecture and verification of high-performance Power Management Integrated Circuits (PMICs) and Power Management Units (PMUs) embedded in our chipsets for smartphones, tablets, notebooks, a variety of cutting-edge consumer electronics, IOT and automotives. These systems consist of switch-mode power supplies and linear voltage regulators for a variety of core, peripheral and charging applications.
We are looking for Power Systems engineering professionals at all levels of experience from senior staff to entry level (assumes power related academic history), and depending on your experience level and area of technical expertise you will participate in the definition and verification of a variety of analog power systems while partnering with other Qualcomm engineering teams like Digital, RF and Mixed-Signal in a fast-paced environment. Responsibilities on the team are roughly divided between system architecture and verification with significant overlap between both areas.
Examples of tasks required of each include:
+ Define and implement state of the art power systems and circuits for a variety of mobile devices, automotive infortament and ADAS system.
+ Research, specification and design of switch-mode power systems for chargers, USB interfaces, backlighting systems, etc.
+ Power grid modeling, ultra-low-power system architecture and experience with modeling languages like VerilogAMS, VerilogA and VerilogPLI. **Verification:**
+ Writing C#/F# code on an advanced test platform to generate programs that test/verify the functionality and performance of very complex analog and mixed-signal power systems.
+ Work with common lab equipment such as power supplies, oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, logic analyzers, JTAG debugger, frequency counters, etc.
All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
+ Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or relative field
+ Master’s degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering and 3 years of professional experience in power system design or PhD in Electrical Engineering with a focus on power system design.
+ Academic or industrial experience in the designing and verifying full-custom power management circuits, systems and chipsets with multiple voltage domains in BiCMOS, bipolar, and CMOS technologies for medium to highly integrated applications.
+ Specific experience in high current monolithic DC-DC converters and switch mode battery chargers along with strength in device physics, ultra-low-power design techniques and lab skills are also essential.
+ Knowledge in automotive electronics safety circuit
+ Knowledge in power, mixed-signal, or analog PCB design and debug including CAD interface.
+ System level design of analog and mixed-signal PMICs
+ DC-DC converter operational and design principles
+ Ultra-low-power system architecture
Preferred: Master’s or PhD
