Pharrowtech is a startup headquartered in the dynamic city of Leuven, Belgium. We design leading-edge chip and antenna technology for next-generation wireless systems. We look for talented and enthusiastic new members to join our quickly growing multinational team. We offer a flexible, agile and challenging work environment and an attractive compensation package.

Analog/RF IC Designer

You have a M.Sc. or Ph.D. in electrical engineering, and you have a solid background with industrial experience in analog and RF IC design. You worked with advanced CMOS technology nodes and you know about millimeter wave circuit challenges. You are eager to join a dynamic team developing products for next-generation 5G systems. You are a self-motivated, independent and fast-learner team member with good communication skills and product-oriented mentality.

Responsibilities

We are looking for an RFIC designer to contribute to the design of wideband analog circuits and provide support for all other RFIC blocks including RF front-end and PLL. Responsibilities include:

  • contribute to GHz-range analog baseband amplification, filtering and buffering circuits;
  • support implementation of DC, biasing and calibration blocks;
  • support implementation of mm-wave passive structures (e.g., TL, transformer, power splitter/combiner);
  • support other analog and/or RF blocks (e.g., buffers, dividers, multipliers).

Requirements

The successful candidate has a proven industry experience with solid analog design background and RF knowledge.

Following requirements are a must, candidates must tick all boxes to be considered:

  • degree in Electrical Engineering with at least 3 years of industrial experience in analog/RF IC design;
  • solid background in GHz analog operation (e.g., amplification, filtering, buffering, etc.);
  • DFT and PVT-aware design experience including biasing blocks (e.g., Bandgap, PTAT, LDO, etc.);
  • contribution to one or more working product chips with analog and/or RF circuits;
  • advanced user of Cadence Virtuoso custom IC tool suite.

Following qualifications will make you stand out:

  • Passive design experience (e.g., TL, transformer, power splitter/combiner);
  • experience with chip finishing (e.g., IO ring design) and robust ESD design;
  • experience with mixed-signal top-level simulation and verification;
  • knowledge of PDK development and skill coding;
  • experience with RF blocks (e.g., PA, LNA, mixer, divider, multiplier, VCO, PLL);
  • knowledge of ADS, momentum, EMX, HFSS.
