Role Number:200258070

Did you know that you could design custom analog integrated circuits at Apple? Our team is looking to hire inventive analog designers for the purpose of power management ICs! You can work with a team with dynamic strengths to push the limits of DC-DC converters. Partner with us to develop bucks, boosts, buck-boosts, charge pumps, chargers, or LDOs. Additionally, this role covers IC areas closely related to power converter IPs such as mixed signal circuits, switch-cap, filters, data converters, references, input-output circuits, and clock circuits just to name a few. As a power management IC designer, you can also work with system engineers and architects. Together, you will work on exciting problems and help build amazing products. If so, we are looking for you!

Key Qualifications

  • Typically requires 8+ years of experience in analog/mixed-signal layout design of SubMicron CMOS circuits. Experience in PMU and chip level layout is highly preferred.
  • Experience building tight matching, low capacitance, low power analog blocks, resistors, capacitors, high voltage devices, pad IOs, ESD structures, etc.
  • Proficient experience with custom and standard cell-based floor planning and hierarchical layout assembly.
  • Deep understanding of IR drop, RC delay, electro-migration, self-heating and cross capacitance.
  • Looking for strong experience with analog and DFM practices.
  • High-level proficiency in interpretation of Calibre, DRC, ERC, LVS, etc. reports.
  • Knowledge of MENTOR GRAPHICS or CADENCE layout tools.
  • Scripting experience in PERL or SKILL CODE is considered a plus, but not required.
  • Excellent communication skills and able to work with multi-functional teams.

Description

You will be responsible to deliver PDV clean layout, including the following:
Working with circuit design team to plan/schedule work and negotiate any vital layout trade-offs as needed to build complex analog layout in deep SubMicron CMOS technologies.
Recognize failure prone circuit and layout structures.
Running complete set of design verification tools available on Mega-cell level (also on chip level).
Interpreting LVS, DRC and ERC reports to find the fastest way to complete layout.
Exceeding engineering specifications and expectations by working closely with the circuit design teams.
Utilizing advanced CAD tools and mask design knowledge to deliver correct and robust layout that meet stringent matching performance, area and power requirements.

Education & Experience

BSEE, MSEE, PhD, or equivalent.
