An analog designer intern on the 3DXP design team will be responsible for pathfinding new solutions to reduce energy, power, latency, die size of 3DXP products and to develop solutions for new technology requirements. Once all paths have been identified, designers build and test schematics that meet all functionality and performance goals for the designated 3DXP products and develop methodologies and coverage metrics to ensure quality at the fullchip level. After design is complete, designers support fullchip validation by building various path and fullchip models and running extensive full chip validation suites while also working with layout to ensure cell level and block level layout is being drawn as necessary to achieve the desired performance and spec functionality. Finally, the designers work with product engineering to debug post silicon issues by developing models for observed behavior and proposing experiments both in silicon and in simulation to prove or disprove the proposed models.
Typically an intern will do a subset of the mentioned work depending on length of internship. Most intern work assignments demand a two semesters of intern time.
The candidate 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. Experience listed below would be obtained through a combination of your school work/classes/research and/or relevant previous job and/or internship experiences.
