Job Requirements:

As a Signal Integrity & Power Integrity Validation Engineer you will participate in the definition and implementation of the initial framework, and perform feasibility study for complex high-speed designs with leading edge high speed and high-power consumption. Signal Integrity engineers Validation Engineer will contribute in all phases of the product design, including definition, review and signoff on schematics, bring up of a new ASIC. and validating the design in the lab through lab measurements. In this position, you will:


  • Work with the HW, ASIC, SW, and FW teams to provide signal and power integrity needed for the product
  • Work alongside simulations for SoC package, and PCB designs, while working with cross functional teams to optimize the design for performance, quality, and correctness
  • Develop simulation methodologies, and design sign off checklists
  • Participate and drive lab measurement activates, to correlate the simulations to physical reality, at the same driving improvements in methodologies for correlation
  • Work with fab vendors, IP, components, and ASIC vendors in finding best in class solutions for our products
  • Be a team player, quality driven, and effective communicator


Preferred Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of experience in high speed designs with signal integrity focus
  • Ability to programmatically automate repetitive tasks in your day to day job (knowledge in scripting languages is highly desired: TCL, Python, etc.)
  • Experience with EDA tools such as Ansys HFSS, Cadence PowerSI, Q3D, PowerDC, APD, Keysight ADS, HSpice, and SIWave
  • Experience in high speed SerDes
  • Strong electrical debug capabilities, having the technical breadth and depth to gap various functional teams
  • Familiarity with high-speed serial interfaces such as: XFI, KR, and PCIe
  • Familiar with memory interfaces such as DDR4, and DDR5. Ability to do timing analysis
  • Ability to direct CAD with design constraints, and routing rules
  • Hands on lab measurements, validation process. Correlation on package, and PCB level
  • Trade off studies around ASIC die bump-out, package pin-out/ball-out assignment
  • Familiar with industry standard lab tools such as: real time scopes, VNA, TDR, and BERT
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills


Education Requirements:

  • MSEE or equivalent practical experience, with minimum 3+ years of work experience
