Within BR&T, Boeing's Solid State Electronics Development organization (SSED) performs microelectronics technology development and design for aerospace systems. We develop digital, analog, and RF Systems on Chip (SoCs) for radar, navigation, electronic warfare, communications, processing, and other electronic systems. These systems are used on Boeing airborne, terrestrial, and satellite platforms. Designs are implemented with state of the art semiconductor process technologies including CMOS, GaAs, GaN, and SiGe. SSED uses external wafer fabrication but performs design (architecture, RTL, synthesis, circuits, physical design, verification, packaging and test) in house. SSED has numerous microelectronics projects, funded both by internal Boeing customers and external Government Science and Technology (S&T) customers. SSED's large staff of microelectronics engineers conduct research and designs microelectronics hardware in support of these projects.

We are seeking experienced semiconductor device model engineers who are able to model CMOS transistor behavior in extreme environments (e.g. cryogenic, extreme heat, and high radiation) in advanced semiconductor fabrication nodes (32nm). adapting foundry-provided models for extreme environments based on experimental data and theoretical understanding of DC to multi-GHz AC behavior; defining test structures and measurements needed to provide data to validate and calibrate models; predicting and explaining behavior of high-speed digital, analog/mixed-signal, and RF circuits using the developed devices models.

Position Responsibilities:

  • adapting foundry-provided models for extreme environments based on experimental data and theoretical understanding of DC to multi-GHz AC behavior

  • Defining test structures and measurements needed to provide data to validate and calibrate models

  • Predicting and explaining behavior of high-speed digital, analog/mixed-signal, and RF circuits using the developed devices models.

Ability to obtain a U.S. Security Clearance for which the U.S. Government requires U.S. Citizenship. An interim and/or final U.S. Secret Clearance Post-Start is required.

Basic Qualifications (Required Skills/Experience):

  • Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate of Science degree from an accredited course of study, in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry

  • 3+ years of experience in the development and calibration of CMOS transistor models for digital, mixed-signal/analog, and RF integrated circuit applications

  • 3+ years of experience with semiconductor device physics

  • Experience with process variation / mismatch models

Preferred Qualifications (Desired Skills/Experience):

  • Experience with industry-standard device modeling software for transistor characterization and modeling

  • Experience with foundry-provided Process Design Kits?

  • Experience with experimental process technologies

Typical Education/Experience:

Education/experience typically acquired through advanced technical education from an accredited course of study in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry (e.g. Bachelor) and typically 9 or more years' related work experience or an equivalent combination of technical education and experience (e.g. PhD+4 years' related work experience, Master+7 years' related work experience). In the USA, ABET accreditation is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.
