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


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.  





  • 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 


  • 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 



  • 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 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 


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