Analog IC Design Engineer

GN Hearing
Ballerup - Denmark
Published: August 22, 2018
Are you ready to further develop the most advanced digital hearing aids on the market? Join an expanding R&D IC team in Copenhagen and use your skills to help define the future of chipset architecture and CMOS technology.

Leading major technology shifts with intelligent audio solutions
At the headquarters of GN Hearing, which is part of the GN Group in Copenhagen, you will be joining R&D IC - a dynamic team of 20+ designers that strive to develop leading chipsets for hearing applications. Together, we innovate and develop a wide variety of ultra-low-power mixed circuits in nanometer CMOS technologies from transistor-level to GDS and silicon.

Secure high-quality analog circuits
As design engineer, you will be responsible for the specification, design and qualification of analog circuits used in our chipset system.

This includes:
• Design of ultra-low-power analog-mixed circuits (DC-DC converters, battery management, data converters, frequency synthesis, radio front-ends, analog enablers for ULP digital cores)
• Specification of IC blocks with the chip architect
• Analog-mixed simulation on circuit and chip-level (Spectre-Incisive)
• Circuit layout & verification (Virtuoso, Calibre)
• Circuit high-level modelling for system integration (Verilog-A)
• Lab evaluation & characterization of ICs (automation in Python/Tcl)
• Wafer test specification and support
• Assistance in the continuous optimization of our CAD flow

Join an experienced team
You will collaborate closely with specialists in analog and digital IC design, audio processing, radio systems and 3D integration. We are all about sharing knowledge and thoughts, so this is your chance to push innovative ideas that can become part of our next generation connected DSP platform.

Good CMOS fabrication and IC design knowledge
You are an innate team player with a “can do” attitude and an interest in learning and contributing with your skills to help us design the best chipset in the business.

You also bring:
• A master’s degree or PhD in electronics engineering
• 3+ years of relevant experience working with IC design
• Knowledge of CMOS fabrication basics and scripting skills to collect and analyse simulation or test data
• Good communication skills in English
• Preferably, knowledge of sampled signal modelling and analysis in Matlab or Python and experience working with CMOS analog, transistor-level design, circuit simulation and layout in EDA tools environment such as Cadence or Mentor Graphics – although this is not a prerequisite
