Required Skills
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Design
  • Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering/Math/Physics or related discipline
  • U.S. citizenship
  • Experience using simulation software (e.g. Ansys HFSS, SIwave, Q2D/Q3D, Maxwell, Cadence ADE, APD, EMX, Clarity 3D, AWR, Sonnet 3D Planar, CST Studio Suite; IdEM, Keysight ADS Momentum, COMSOL AC/DC, RF)
  • Experience using Power Integrity Tools (e.g. Mentor Graphics Hyperlynx PI, Ansys SIwave, CST Studio Suite AC/DC, Cadence Sigrity PowerPI)
  • Experience using Signal Integrity Tools (e.g. Hyperlynx SI, Ansys SIwave, CST Studio Suite RF, Cadence Sigrity PowerSI)
  • Familiar with PCB schematics, layout, design constraints, impedance control, et. al.
  • Simulate electromagnetic performance characteristics of printed circuit boards (PCB) and chip packages
  • Architect, create, and validate broadband SPICE models for large-element count (100+ signals), high-frequency (> 1 GHz), high-dynamic-range (-80dB) linear time-invariant (LTI) signal chains
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to synthesize model requirements
  • Design pre-layout models for initial design-space explorations
  • Import, simulate, and model the resulting device/package/PCB post-layout
  • Deploy strategic techniques to simplify the models while retaining accuracy and minimizing simulation time
  • Generate test plans to validate models and coordinate with test engineers to execute the test plans
  • Validate models against measured results and analyze any deltas as feedback for improving the model
