Client:


Our client a leading Multinational Semiconductor RF Company requires IC Power Management Lead for role in Dublin City Centre, Ireland.


Role:

You will work with the IC product managers to generate the MRD, PRD and product specification for future low power roadmap products.  

You will a Lead a cross-functional team to deliver the next generation IC products from concept to volume production. Support concurrent engineering activities to ensure on-going production of quality products with high yield.  

 

Responsibilities:
 

 

Design:

  • Work with the business team on IC requirements and product definition 

  • Maintain the IC specification and supporting documentation 

  • Drive the IC floorplan, package, IO ring. ESD strategy and top-level power management 

  • Work with teams from all disciplines (analog, digital, backend, packaging)  

  • Ensure the IC follows best practice for design and testability (DFM, DFT, production test access etc.) 

  • Interface with the Physical Designer to hand off the synthesized netlist and constraints, and to iterate through layout, floorplan and design changes needed to close post-layout timing. 

  • Ensure that designs follow industry standard design flows, verification techniques, 

  • Create the necessary design and product documentation. 

  • Drive Design reviews and tapeout signoff meetings for spec compliance 

Test:

  • Assist in the development of the IC production test suite (Package test, wafer probe, HTOL, Latch-up, ESD) 

  • Execute plans and develops test procedures 

  • Actively participate in silicon bring-up and Characterisation testing 

 

Interpersonal:

  • Work with the product managers and the IC design team to ensure the IC design is executed to plan 

  • Interact with other engineers in systems, RF/analog subsystems to ensure products are delivered to meet or exceed specifications, on time and where applicable within budget. 

  • Support the applications team in solving customer issues and solving and anticipating potential issues. 

  • Provide direct customer support on IC related issues. 

 

Main Goals: 

  • Technical leadership for the production of high quality mixed signal, low power, ICs using industry best practice methods for design, verification and test 

  • Actively support concurrent engineering activities such as continuous yield improvement 

  • Actively support applications engineering & sales teams to increase revenue 

  • Mentor junior engineers and to share IC skills/experience with other members of the team 

 

Experience:

  • Experience in the complete digital ASIC Design flow, from specification, frontend RTL Design, Verification, STA (static timing analyse) through DFT and physical implementation 

  • Experience in the complete analog ASIC Design flow, from specification, schematic entry, layout, post-layout simulation. 

  • An excellent understanding of IC design flow and key productivity / performance metrics 

  • Have experience in multiple high volume tape-outs? 

  • Experience in low power IC modelling and design techniques 

  • Experience in IP Evaluation and selection, Analog/Digital partitioning in mixed-signal systems 

  • Experienced in die-size estimation and modelling the trade-offs between functionality and die-size and package selection would be an advantage 

  • Familiarity with designing on nodes of CMOS 40nm or less 

  • Excellent problem solving and analytical skills 

  • Excellent communications skills and ability to work on own initiative to come up with innovative solutions 

Education:
 

  • Minimum Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering or related field and 15+ years of experience in relevant product development.
