Mixed Signal IC Design Engineer 


Mountain View, CA 


Cover designing project for TV tuners from designing, simulating, lay outing to lab testing. 


  1. Analyze specifications and design RF circuits in RFCMOS/CMOS process based on specifications, draw circuits with Cadence IC design tool.
  2. Simulate how the circuit works in a simulation environment on computer.
  3. Draw a lay out to place circuits into patterns to go on chips.
  4. Test and debug sample circuits in their laboratory, how the sample chips work within electronics products under certain temperature, battery level and functions.
  5. Take documentation of specifications and keep designing notes.
