Contract type   permanent contract

Starting Date    immediately

Location              Paris, Caen - France

Job function  SCALINX’s design team is seeking a dynamic and highly motivated digital IC design engineer who will participate to the design of an innovative CMOS analog front-end (AFE) IC. The candidate will be particularly involved in the architecture definition, design and validation on silicon of the digital signal processing part of the AFE in close collaboration with the mixed-signal IC design engineers.

Work description

  • Define the hardware architecture of the digital signal processing (DSP)
  • System-level modeling and simulation of the DSP part
  • Description, simulation and validation using a RTL description language (VHDL or Verilog)
  • Synthesis including testability, place and route, floor planning and timing analysis
  • Test the fabricated IC prototype in our measurement lab
  • Work in team to successfully design a state-of-the art IC
  • Participate to design reviews
  • Write documentation

Qualification and Experience

  • You have at least three years of experience in the semiconductor industry or a PhD in electrical engineering
  • You have a proven track record in the design of digital IP blocks or digitally-assisted analog and mixed-signal functions such as A/D and D/A converters
  • You have a solid background in semiconductor physics and signal processing
  • You have knowledge of a digital hardware description languages (VHDL or Verilog) and programing languages (python, C)
  • You demonstrate good analytical and problem solving skills
  • A previous experience with Cadence ASIC design flow is necessary
  • A previous experience with FPGA is a plus
  • You are a team player with a critical attitude and sense of initiative
  • You communicate fluently in English (oral and written)
