In this role, the Senior Analog RF IC Design Engineer will be part of a team contributing to Silicon Photonics Solution Group's mission to transform and lead datacenter connectivity and enable Intel's differentiation in the networking space. As a Senior Engineer, the individual will be involved in developing key high-speed mixed signal designs from architecture to product.
Responsibilities will include, but not limited to:
Driving system specifications, defining circuit architectures and enabling designs meeting power, performance and cost for next generation optical interconnects.
As part of the team developing key integrated circuit components, the engineer must be willing to work collaboratively leading block level development.
Specify, architect and design low voltage and low power Mixed-Signal integrated circuits from product definition through characterization and qualification.
Plan design work with constraints on performance, power, time and quality.
Provide guidance to junior designers and layout engineers.
Prepare and participate in concept, schematic and final design reviews for circuit blocks.
Guidance to develop test plans for lab characterization once design comes back from fab.
Document all design work with review materials and detailed design descriptions as well as participate in the writing of datasheets and application notes for customers.
Intel Silicon Photonics Product Division (SPPD) is at the forefront of silicon photonics integration. Since announcing the world's first hybrid silicon laser nearly a decade ago, our team continues to lead the industry with cutting-edge technology and efficient, scalable high-volume manufacturing. Our dedication to advanced development ensures that Intel Silicon Photonics continues to drive future data center bandwidth growth with smaller form factors and higher speeds, from 100G today to 400G and beyond tomorrow. We are looking for great talent to accelerate this journey, so if you are interested in joining our leading organization, then we want to hear from you.
