Our client a leading Multinational Telecoms Semiconductor company requires a Senior RF/Analog Mixed Signal Design Engineer for role based in Dublin or Cork, Ireland. 


As a member of the RF/analog team, you will work with our experienced engineers, digital designers and system architect. You will take part in the creation of the next generation of RF circuits. 


  • To design ultra-low power implementation of subsystems of RF transceivers in CMOS/FinFET. 
  • To contribute to system studies combining several connectivity standards such as Bluetooth, WiFi, ZigBee and provide feedback on implementation. 
  • To design and generate behavioral models for analog / mixed signal / RF blocks of IoT transceivers. 
  • To bring in new ideas based on literature or experience for ultra-low power RF and/or analog / mixed-signal blocks architecture and design. 
  • To contribute to the definition and specification of subsystems in collaboration with digital design, system engineering and validation teams to order to ensure the robustness and suitability of the design. 
  • To support the validation team for silicon testing and participate in measurements as appropriate.
  • To take part in pre-sales and counseling with our customers and partners. 


You have the following competencies:

  • 10 years + plus experience 
  • Good communication with internal and external teams and partners.
  • Ability to work at different abstraction levels, from behavioral modeling and architecture tradeoffs down to transistor level design of CMOS or FinFET circuits.
  • Familiarity with: Cadence design environment, Matlab,
  • Curious and open-minded, you are looking forward to design of state-of-the-art RF circuits with an ultra low-power objective.
  • Experience and familiarity with some of the following fields is valued
  • Study, research and design of CMOS or FinFET analog and RF circuits with low-power and low-area constraints (up to 10GHz)
  • Simulation and statistical process variation analysis (Monte Carlo + PVT variations) of RF or Mixed-Signal subsystems
  • Behavioral modeling (either specification or model writing, in Verilog-A, Verilog or Matlab)
  • Design of RF blocks like LNA, PA, LO distribution circuits, PLL (analogue or digital).
  • Design of analog or mixed signal blocks such as low-power data converters, power management subsystems, bias circuits.
  • Lab measurements and investigation into measurements vs. design discrepancies
  • Layout experience (either RF or Data converters)
  • With a background of engineering in embedded electronic and RF transceivers,
  • You are rigorous, versatile, are a team player, and have good interpersonal skills.
