Competitive salary

Senior Digital Design Engineer - Dublin

In this role you will be responsible for the design, implementation and block verification of DSP baseband blocks and various subsystems.

You will work as part of a cross-functional team to deliver the next generation products from concept to volume production. Support concurrent engineering activities to ensure on-going production of quality products with high yield. Support applications team to maximise revenue from current products.

Core tasks and responsibilities:

• Actively contribute to the generation of product specifications (block, sub-system and IC level)
• Design and document digital/DSP baseband/system blocks as required using low power RTL coding techniques
• Perform design verification of relevant blocks/subsystems
• Work with the verification team to specify verification requirements for your designs
• Work with IC Physical Designers on synthesis, power optimisation, formal verification and timing closure
• Ensure that designs follow industry best practice design flows, verification techniques, Design For Test (DFT) and quality process adherence
• Create the necessary design and product documentation and host design reviews

• Develop test specifications and co-ordinate with test/product engineering to drive product releases
• Execute plans and develop test procedures
• Actively participate in silicon bring-up and characterisation testing

• Interact with other engineers in the verification, systems and RF/Analog teams to ensure products are delivered to meet or exceed specifications, on time and where applicable within budget
• Support IC Applications team in solving customer issues and solving and anticipating potential issues
• Support concurrent engineering teams to ensure issues with current products are resolved in a timely manner and to ensure their on-going high yield in volume production

Main Goals of this role are:
• Deliver timely digital/baseband design following roadmap or priority product / customer current issues
• Produce high quality digital/baseband IC systems/sub-systems using industry best practice methods for design, verification and test according to project plans
• Actively participate in developing IC's targetted for high-volume by collaboration with the entire product team
• Define efficient testing methods
• Actively support concurrent engineering activities e.g. continuous yield improvement
• Actively support applications engineering & sales teams to increase revenue
• Provide relevant documentation including design, product, test

Interested applicants should have:

• Good working knowledge of the complete Digital ASIC Design flow process (specification, front-end RTL Design, Verification, STA, DFT and physical implementation)
• Good working knowledge of DSP concepts used in modern communications systems
• Experience in implementing fixed-point algorithms into RTL.
• Low power IC design techniques
• Complete IC Design Flow: IP Evaluation and Selection, Analog/Digital partitioning in mixed-signal systems
• Familiarity with designing in CMOS 40nm or less nodes
• System Verilog and Verilog
• Matlab
• Good interpersonal skills
• Problem solving skills
• Analytical skills
• Ability to work on own initiative to come up with innovative solutions
• Good communication skills, verbal & written

Minimum Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering or related field and at least 8 years' experience in relevant product development
