Sr. RTL Design Engineer TP-5984

Hardware Engineering Austin, Texas

As a Digital Design Engineer, you will be part of a collaborative team developing high-performance mixed-signal integrated circuits, including delta-sigma ADC’s and DAC’s, amplifiers, DC/DC converters, and other circuitry in advanced CMOS processes. You will play a meaningful role in developing next-generation devices and ensuring that leading consumer electronics manufacturers can easily integrate our devices into their products.


  • You will work in a collaborative environment to design and engineer digital design subsystems from architecture through tape-out
  • You will model control loop feedback and signal processing algorithms using tools such as Matlab and Simulink
  • You will convert digital subsystems into real-world final designs for integration into the final product
  • As part of a team, you will support tape-out and post-silicon activities including validation, characterization, and production test
  • You will be responsible for design, development, and Verilog RTL coding for a variety of digital IP blocks for high-performance mixed-signal ICs

Required Skills and Qualifications

  • Master's degree in Electrical Engineering and 3+ years of proven professional experience in digital system design engineering
  • Experience coding in Verilog RTL language
  • Deep understanding of the digital design flow from architecture through RTL design, verification, and synthesis

Preferred Skills and Qualifications

  • Solid understanding of high-level modeling tools like Simulink, Matlab, or similar
  • Experience designing and verifying complex state-machines that are incorporated into our mixed-signal designs
  • Expertise in mixed-signal design, simulation, and verification
  • Experience with back-end flow including synthesis, place and route, and timing analysis
  • Experience generating functional test vectors for PTE
  • Basic understanding of CMOS transistors
  • Hands-on lab test/debug experience during pre and/or post silicon validation with scopes, logic analyzers, in circuit emulators and other lab equipment
  • Strong oral and written communication skills
  • Understanding of control theory and discrete time, z-domain, signal processing techniques
  • Familiarity with FIR and IIR filter design
