Intel Mixed Signal Circuit Design Engineer in Folsom, California

Job Description

Intel is looking for a Mixed Signal Circuit Design Engineer to join our Non-volatile memory Solutions Group working on NAND memory products as an Analog/Mixed-signal Design engineer focused on full chip integration.

Responsibilities will include but are not limited to:

  • Work with Design and Layout teams to create floorplan, signal routing strategy, signal routing methodology and power grid design for a mixed signal chip design. Many routes are sensitive analog signals and special high voltage paths, so this is a semi-custom routing process.

  • Construct wire models and simulations for pre layout estimation of supply droops and critical signal analysis.

  • Work with layout and design to mitigate issues with signal and power grid integrity.

  • Work with the design team on full chip mixed signal simulation strategy and execution, post layout simulation and analysis of results.

  • Help integrate reliability tool flows into pre-silicon simulation methodology.

  • Cross team interface skills along with good written and oral communication skills are very important.


Experience listed below would be obtained through a combination of your school work/classes/research and/or relevant previous job and/or internship experiences.

Required Skills/Experience

  • BS degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or a related discipline. An MSEE of MSCE degree is preferred.

  • Prior years of experience with the skillsets below (4+ years with a BS Degree OR 3+ years with a MS Degree, 0+ with a PhD)

  • experience with CMOS digital, analog, and I/O circuit design.

  • experience with transistor-level circuit simulation tools SPICE5+ years of experience in transistor and semiconductor device layout methods.

  • experience using custom design environments such as Cadence Virtuoso.

  • experience in DRC, LVS, and post-layout extraction tools.

  • experience with timing closure and constraint files

Preferred Skills/Experiences:

  • An MSEE of MSCE

  • 5+ years of experience in UNIX and programming C++, Perl, TCL.

  • Experience in product life cycle - from definition to design to pre/post-silicon validation to product qualification.

  • Design Experience with 2D or 3D NAND or NOR or PCM non-volatile memory design with strong fundamentals in Flash-cell/Semiconductor device physics, transistor level analog/mixed signal & I/O circuit design.
