Role Number:200278531

The wireless RFIC team architects, designs, and validates radio transceivers integrated into complex wireless SoCs. Our transceivers have powered wireless connectivity solutions for Apple wearable products, enabling the smallest form factor at the lowest power envelope. You will have the opportunity to do innovative development in transceiver design while working closely with systems and product teams at Apple.
Layout is an integral part of Analog circuit / RF design. We are searching for a passionate and self-motivated leader to join the team. You will work closely with RFIC designers to layout and verify custom RF and Analog IP for complex SoC products. Would you like to take up the challenge to create future connectivity solutions at Apple?

Key Qualifications

  • You would need the following to succeed in this role:
  • Hands-on experience in custom RF/analog layout with working knowledge on deep sub-micron CMOS (28nm and lower with FinFet experience preferred)
  • Strong knowledge on layout techniques for matching, isolating and shielding signals and devices, minimizing parasitics, and routing high frequency lines
  • Deep understanding of CMOS device structures, LDE and DFM effects, EMIR and RC delay analysis, and coupling of signals
  • Ability to recognize and resolve failure prone circuit and layout structures
  • High proficiency in Cadence and Mentor Graphics layout / verification tools and interpretation of verification reports
  • Team play spirit with excellent communication skills to work with various teams in the company and make presentations to upper management
  • Ability to accurately plan and allocate layout resources for multiple projects
  • 15+ years RF and analog/mixed-signal layout experience with 7+ years management experience.

Description

As a RF Layout Manager, you will be responsible for:
- Establish robust layout methodology to help drive efficient and high quality detailed transistor level layout of RF / analog circuit blocks such as LNA, Mixers, PLL, LO generation, Modulators, Power Amplifiers, ADC / DAC, Baseband Filters, Bandgap / Bias / LDO, etc.
- Work with CAD to optimize layout flow and ensure robust and efficient chip verification and release
- Work with design leads on top-level Floor-planning and area estimations
- Resource planning and allocation for multiple projects and teams
- Recruiting and staffing for both full-time layout positions and specialized RFIC contractors to meet peak layout demands
- Collaborate with design team on block level floor planning for min area and parasitics
- Enforce block-level and top-level layout review for device placement, routings of power, ground, signals and differential lines, and checking of electro-migration, IR, signal path and signal coupling
- Top-level layout integration and verification, and schedule management with design leads.

Education & Experience

Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or equivalent preferred
