Job Description

Power Delivery Circuits and Systems Research group in Intel Labs is looking for an experienced, mixed signal circuit designer to contribute to the prototyping and development of state-of-the-art technologies in the area of DC-DC Converters.

The candidate will work under the guidance of a Research Scientist to:

  • Complete assigned circuit design tasks and run simulations/analysis to assess circuit performance and validate functionality.
  • Explore circuit design techniques within stringent area and power efficiency constrains.
  • Drive layout and perform post-layout simulations with extracted parasitic and do appropriate tuning of the circuits to meet the desired specs and contribute towards the tapeout of the technology prototype.
  • Perform testing and characterization of the prototype silicon to successfully demonstrate the technology on silicon/system prototype.
  • Work closely with engineers in business units within Intel to provide any necessary documentation/training to enable a successful product integration.

Behavioral traits that we are looking for:

  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills with continuous learning mindset
  • Strong verbal/written communication skills
  • Effective team player and collaborator
  • Willingness to balance multiple tasks and ability to operate in a fast-paced and sometimes ambiguous project environment


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Relevant experience can be obtained through school work, classes and project work, internships, military training, and/ or work experience.

Minimum Qualification:

The candidate must have an Bachelors degree with (4+ years industry experience) or Masters degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering with (2+ years of industry experience) in analog / digital mixed signal circuit design including:

2+ years of experience in below areas:

  • Designing, testing and validating analog and/or mixed signal circuits with sub-micron CMOS technology.
  • Design of mixed signal circuits such as comparators, level shifters, ADCs, DACs
  • Solid understanding of deep sub-micron device physics, process technology and manufacturing.
  • Knowledge of analog layout techniques, including floor-planning, matching, shielding and parasitic optimization.
  • Strong background in VLSI and industry standard CAD tools for schematic capture, simulation, layout and physical verification, such as Cadence Spectre/Ultrasim/AMS Designer /Virtuoso, StarRC.
  • Programing/Scripting using Verilog/VHDL/SystemVerilog, MATLAB
  • Working with Mask Designers on layout implementation and reviews

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Knowledge of power electronics (DC-DC converters) topologies (Buck, LDOs, SC etc), VR controllers (CCM, DCM etc) is highly desirable
  • Experience in taking power delivery designs from circuit to layout to silicon prototype is highly desired.
  • Expertise in Digital RTL design, and taking the blocks through Synthesis/APR steps is a plus.
