Analog RF IC Designer (Junior)

What you will do

  • Implement and test ultra-low power transceiver analog circuits on CMOS.
  • Invent new analog circuit designs in close collaboration with a system engineer and digital designer.
  • Take the lead of your analog part of the design in a multi-disciplinary team to optimize aspects like the implementation of
    mixed-signal system loops such as AGC and CFO and other calibration loops.
  • Together with the team, create new ideas and/or new technical methods based on your solid technical experience.
  • Hand over your design to external partners and present your results towards new prospects as part of the technical support.
  • Coach the (junior members of the) RF IC design team in order to grow the talent, the quality of the work and the innovation.

What we do for you

The IMEC Ultra-low Power Analog Design team has the mission to develop world-class ultra-low power transceivers, with a sub-mW power consumption. These are used in advanced radio and radar systems. The team is internationally recognized as a center of excellence in the field of ultra-low power transceiver design. The ULP Wireless Systems team, is part of a broader program on wireless sensor node technology and designs prototypes of new ICs and new electronic systems for demonstration and transfer to industrial partners.

Who you are

  • Master's degree Or PhD degree in electronics engineering.
  • 4-6 years of experience in RF and analog IC design (ideally to include for wireless products).
