Analog Devices (NASDAQ: ADI) designs and manufactures semiconductor products and solutions. We enable our customers to interpret the world around us by intelligently bridging the physical and digital worlds with unmatched technologies that sense, measure and connect.

Analog Devices Inc. is seeking an intelligent and versatile digital physical design engineer to join our wideband transceiver design group. You will join a team of digital and analog CMOS designers implementing state of the art RF transceiver chips. As a member of the digital team, your focus will be on implementing digital designs in an RTL to GDS flow . As a member of a small, focused team, you will have opportunities to be involved with broad aspects of the chip design process, including RTL coding, design floor planning, synthesis, place and route, static timing closure, and LVS/DRC verification. Close interaction with fellow digital and analog circuit engineers is expected. The role will include collaboration with design teams at other ADI sites and which may require some travel.


  • Implementing digital designs using synthesis and place/route tool sets

  • Design floor planning and partitioning for hierarchical SOC design flows

  • Performing static timing analysis for signoff and timing closure, including multi-frequency clock systems

  • LVS/DRC signoff for tape out verification

  • Contribute to improving design flows and processes across all area of digital design from RTL to GDS

  • Collaborating with digital and analog designers to bring high performance mixed signal products to production


  • BS/MS Electrical Engineering

  • 3-5 years' experience working with digital implementation tools:

  • Synthesis from Cadence (Genus) and/or Synopsys (Design Compiler) tools

  • Place and route from Cadence (Innovus) and/or Synopsys (ICC) tools

  • Static timing analysis using Cadence (Tempus) and/or Synopsys (Primetime) tools

  • Knowledge of RTL coding techniques and good design practices

  • Working knowledge of HDL simulation and testbench mythologies desirable

  • Desired knowledge in:

  • Ultra-deep submicron technologies below 65nm, FINFET technologies desirable

  • Flip chip design floorplanning

  • Hierarchical design methodologies for synthesis, layout, and timing analysis

  • Strong working knowledge of digital clock tree insertion, balancing, and analysis

  • DFT methodologies and practices

  • Understanding of timing closure of mixed signal design environments

  • Scripting languages such as TCL, Perl, Python, or similar

  • Knowledge of TCL scripting inside digital implementation tools desirable

  • Strong ability to develop custom programs/scripts to solve problems

  • Linux shell scripting in csh and/or bash

  • Strong communication skills are required.

For positions requiring access to technical data, Analog Devices, Inc. may have to obtain export licensing approval from the U.S. Department of Commerce

  • Bureau of Industry and Security and/or the U.S. Department of State

  • Directorate of Defense Trade Controls. As such, applicants for this position except US Citizens, US Permanent Residents, and protected individuals as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3) may have to go through an export licensing review process.
