The engineer will work within the Analogue/RF group on circuit design for use in radio transceivers. This involves a wide range of circuits from RF through to baseband and PLLs and with an emphasis on low power. He/She will be responsible for the design from initial choice of architecture to the final delivery of the design. The ability to innovate new techniques to meet challenging and sometimes ambiguous circuit requirements due to ever changing market conditions is highly desired.
One aspect of the work involves working closely with layout engineers to define the floorplan and provide guidance to optimize the layout while maintaining good performance. The candidate will also work closely with other disciplines such as the Radio system team to help to define the system requirements. After the design is fabricated the engineer will be involved with cell characterization to ensure the design meets system requirements and then take the design through to production.
