Senior Analog Mixed-Signal Designer

Toronto, Ontario
We have partnered with a scaling start-up organization that focused on delivering performance leading MEMS timing and frequency reference solutions for the semiconductor industry. The company specializes in MEMS timing products which provides disruptive competitive advantages over quartz-based timing, and they are transforming the 100-year-old quartz-based timing market with their breakthrough innovations.  

  • You would be working in a newly formed team, designing a full ASIC from scratch, meaning a lot of interesting work and a lot of room for creating innovative solutions ;
  • You would be contributing to all aspects and the complete cycle of circuit design & development;
  • You would be defining the required tests and the verification methodology;
  • You would be creating and running the test benches, and analyzing the functionality and performance of different analog modules;
  • You would be debugging the circuits (pre- and post-layout), to achieve the required performance;
  • You would be helping with the post-silicon debug, and ASIC/MEMS integration.

  • You are curious about emerging technologies and motivated to find new solutions to improve the existing tech infrastructure;
  • You are an analog-oriented circuit designer, excited about working on a full-chip design;
  • You have experience with analog (full-custom, transistor-level VLSI) design within UNIX environment;
  • You are proficient with schematic capture tools such as Cadence Virtuoso or Synopsys Custom Compiler;
  • You are familiar with Spectre and/or other Spice-based circuit simulators such as Hspice, XA, Finesim or AFS;
  • You have a decent knowledge of the design flow, testing methodology, block-level specifications, calibration & compensation, etc. ;
  • You are familiar with the layout design concepts (parasitic effects, symmetry, regularity and matching, gradient and proximity effects, reliability, etc.).
Nice to Haves: 
  • Some experience using scripting languages (Shell, PERL, Python, TCL, etc.);
  • Some experience with analog circuit modeling in Verilog or VerilogA;
  • Some experience with Matlab and Simulink.
