Be the change you want to see in the world - M.K. Gandhi

Senior ASIC layout & verification engineer

Philips research

9040007 | HIGH TECH CAMPUS, BEEMDEN, EINDHOVEN | Detachering | HBO | 40 uur | publicatiedatum 


Over de functie

Philips Research is involved in the development of an ultrasound scanner for intravascular imaging. The miniaturized scanner includes multiple ASIC dies and a transducer array and is integrated at the tip of a catheter. The ASIC includes high-voltage and low-voltage analogue and digital circuitry to program the device, to generate high voltage stimulus pulses and to sense & amplify the ultrasound echo signals. 
The candidate mainly focusses on layout and verification of the ASIC solution. The activities include involvement in floor-planning, top-level integration, functional and physical verification based on schematic and back-extracted data. As side activities, the candidate may be involved in porting of functional ASIC modules (design & layout), preparation of evaluation PCBs and verification of functional modules of colleague designers. 
The work is executed in a multidisciplinary team involving engineers with analogue & digital ASIC design expertise, transducer knowledge and mechanical integration expertise. 


The candidate has extensive experience in custom analogue layout and integration challenges, using Cadence and Calibre design & verification tools. Because of the extreme miniaturization, early floor-planning and compact ASIC layout is crucial; next to that, performance compromises are to be made across disciplinary boundaries. On integration level, this involves understanding of current density challenges, current loops, dissipation, energy storage, voltage drop and cross coupling due to parasitic effects. Clear and open communication with other team members is crucial. 
Key requirements 
• Extensive experience in custom analogue layout and integration challenges 
• Knowledge of Cadence & Calibre design and verification tools 
• Basic knowledge of analogue & digital ASIC circuit topologies 
• Affinity with multidisciplinary activities 
• Motivated team-player 
• Experience with high-voltage ASIC technology is preferred
