About The Role

Qualcomm offers flexible work options tailored to our employee’s needs. These include a combination of work from home and working in our brand new, state of the art office in Penrose Dock, Cork.
Well-being and life balance are fundamental to Qualcomm as an employer. We recognise and understand that employees have missed spending quality time with loved ones and extended family.
As such, Cork Qualcomm policy allows our employees to blend short-term remote working with annual leave.
Qualcomm’s Mixed-Signal IP Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) team is seeking Analog / Mixed-Signal design engineers to join our growing team in Cork, Ireland. The successful candidate will work on analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for high-speed PLL IP for So C and PHY level integration into Qualcomm's Mobile, Auto, Io T & Compute So C products. The primary focus of the work is on low-power and low-voltage mixed-signal design with emphasis on advanced nanometer Fin FET technology nodes.
You will, both, design key circuit blocks and work closely with layout engineers to ensure the layout is fully optimized and complies with best analog layout practices. You will be directly involved in delivering next-generation PLL designs for Qualcomm So Cs and will be part of a large analog mixed-signal design team involved in architecture analysis and IP delivery in leading-edge Fin FET process technology nodes at 3nm and beyond.
The role requires industry experience in transistor-level circuit implementations or highly relevant academic experience in a Masters’ or Ph D program focused on full custom analog circuit design using nanometer CMOS technologies. In addition to Analog and Mixed-Signal circuit design expertise, good understanding of device physics, analog circuit custom layout, power distribution networks (PDN), mixed-signal design flow, So C top-level integration and IC Design Tools are desired.
Architecture, design, and development of analog / mixed signal hard macros for the PLL IP Design team
Perform custom circuit design in the latest Fin FET CMOS processes technologies and beyond to support the delivery of PLL IP
Participate in internal customer requirements discussions.
Create design specifications.
Create behavioural models in Verilog.
Set-up, run and analyse circuit simulations.
Perform quality assurance procedures on developed hard macros.
Deliver hard macros and support customer integration and testing.
Perform silicon characterization analysis and prepare silicon verification reports.
Skills and Experience we would love to see:
Master’s or Ph. D. degree in Science, Engineering, or related field.
A minimum of 3-years of transistor level analog mixed-signal design experience, preferably in PLL design, high-speed wireline Ser Des, DDR or other high speed applications
Experience in SPICE simulators and schematic capture tools
Experience in designing op-amps, bandgaps, differential amplifiers, VCO, PLL, DLL
Understanding of signal integrity in high-speed wireline design is preferred
