Abbott Staff Engineer, Integrated Circuit Design in Sunnyvale, California
At Abbott, we're committed to helping people live their best possible life through the power of health. For more than 125 years, we've brought new products and technologies to the world -- in nutrition, diagnostics, medical devices and branded generic pharmaceuticals -- that create more possibilities for more people at all stages of life. Today, 99,000 of us are working to help people live not just longer, but better, in the more than 150 countries we serve.
We are seeking a talented and versatile IC designer to be a part of our Integrated Circuit Development organization. Our team designs ultra-low power mixed-signal IC’s for use in Abbott’s implantable pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiovascular devices. These devices save lives and provide therapy for serious medical conditions.
The successful person in this role will have a strong mastery of analog and mixed-signal IC design, with breadth and depth of knowledge across digital and analog design. This position requires consideration of clinical as well as practical design constraints and opportunities that extend well outside the design of the IC’s themselves.
In this role, the engineer will work closely with other members of the Analog and Digital Design groups, and other functions such as Clinical, Electrical Systems Engineering, Firmware Development, ATE, and Manufacturing. The engineer will play a key role in growing our analog mixed-signal design capabilities, and act as a design lead on IC design projects.
Successful experience as IC project lead
Demonstrated ability to define micro-architecture specifications for IC’s and IC subsystems given broad performance requirements
Experience with high-level modeling (e.g. Matlab) of mixed-signal systems
Mastery of circuit and block-level analog IC design
Ability to guide IC top-level integration and drive functional and physical verification
Experience with PLL’s, data converters, and analog signal processing
Design expertise for building blocks such as op amps, bias generators, bandgap references, regulators, switched capacitor circuits, etc.
Excellent design, simulation and debug skills
Experience with Cadence IC design tools is required
Excellent verbal and written communications skills, and ability to work collaboratively in a team environment
Demonstrated ability to work on cross-functional development projects
Interest and ability to provide mentorship to other designers
Demonstrated ability to clearly document design work and present and explain design choices
Great analytical skills and a desire to delve deeply into technical challenges
A strong interest in contributing to integrated circuits that save people’s lives
Experience with weak inversion (subthreshold) and/or ultra low-power analog IC design is a plus
Digital design experience using Verilog
Experience with discrete electronics design (BJT, MOS, Power Devices, etc.)
Education and Experience Requirements:
MSEE or equivalent required
At least 10 years industry experience in IC design
