Snr. Mixed Signal Chip Design Engineer

Engineering | Sunnyvale, CA | Full Time

Job Description

About Us

Kumu Networks is revolutionizing the way wireless systems are built using an innovative full-duplex wireless design that its co-founders developed in their research at Stanford. Wireless full-duplex allows a radio to transmit and receive signals at the same time using a single frequency channel. Kumu's patent pending full-duplex technology changes the basic assumptions on which current wireless radios are built, allowing for improved performance and reduced complexity across a variety of wireless devices and markets. Come help us change the future of wireless!

Description

The Mixed Signal Design Engineer will be a key contributor to the evolution of Kumu Networks full-duplex technology. He/she will work with Kumu’s core technology team to drive the miniaturization of self-interference cancellation into integrated circuits. The ideal candidate will have excellent fundamentals and understand the pros and cons of different analog implementations of a desired function, as well as possess the creativity to use standard components in nontraditional and very innovative ways. The candidate will also have a deep understanding of different IC technologies (standard CMOS and RFSOI,) and the design flow from concept all the way through to release for production.

Responsibilities

  • Design on-chip blocks such as wide dynamic range OPAMPs, baseband filters, RF Attenuators, RF Phase Shifters, simple logic and biasing circuits
  • Create floorplanning or layout as well as guide others in on-chip layout
  • Evaluate the designed on-chip circuits in the lab either in hand- or automated measurements
  • Discuss block and system performance with System Engineers
  • Prepare and participate in design, spec and layout reviews

Requirements

  • Bachelor or Master (preferred) degree in Electrical Engineering with courses in IC design, communications systems or semiconductor technology
  • 5+ years of experience in hands-on design of complex chips (e.g. transceivers, wireless sensors, PLLs or convertors)
  • Ability to work and learn in a team
  • Familiar with Cadence Virtuoso, AMS, Quantus and Assura
  • Familiar with standard CMOS, CMOS on SOI and BiCMOS technologies
  • Familiar with lab test setups using signal analyzers, VNAs, signal generators, digital oscilloscopes, power meters, etc. and Python scripting

Perks

  • Lunch provided daily
  • Sunny, open, collaborative workspace
  • Opportunity to work with great people
