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.

Senior RF/MMW IC Designer

You have a M.Sc. or Ph.D. in electrical engineering, and you have a solid expertise in analog, RF and/or mm-wave IC design with a silicon-proven industry track record. You worked with advanced CMOS technology nodes and you worked for high-speed wireless communication applications. You are eager to join a dynamic team developing products for next-generation 5G systems. You are a self-motivated, independent and efficient team member that has good communication skills and brings a lot of IC design industrial experience to the team.

Responsibilities

We are looking for a senior RFIC designer who owns and contributes to several parts of the RFIC, including RF front-end, wideband analog and PLL circuits, overseeing layout work and take technical lead of small teams as required.
Responsibilities include:

  • design of analog and/or RF blocks (e.g., PA, LNA, mixer, divider, multiplier, VCO, PLL);
  • design of mm-wave passive structures (e.g., TL, transformer, power splitter/combiner);
  • design of GHz-range analog baseband amplification, filtering and buffering circuits;
  • implementation of ESD, DFT, DC, biasing and calibration blocks and methods;
  • Top-level chip design and system simulation.

Requirements

The successful candidate has a proven industry track record with broad expertise in analog, RF and mm-wave IC design.

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

  • degree in Electrical Engineering with at least 10 years of industrial experience in analog/RF/MMW IC design;
  • solid background in GHz analog, RF and/or mm-wave design;
  • DFT and PVT-aware design experience including biasing blocks (e.g., Bandgap, PTAT, LDO, etc.);
  • contribution to several successful product chips with analog/RF/MMW circuits;
  • advanced user of Cadence Virtuoso custom IC tool suite;
  • Passive design experience (e.g., TL, transformer, power splitter/combiner);
  • experience with ADS, momentum, EMX, HFSS.

Following qualifications will make you stand out:

  • experience with ESD design and strategy, and with chip finishing (e.g., IO ring design);
  • experience with mixed-signal top-level simulation and verification;
  • knowledge of PDK development and skill coding;
  • experience with characterization and ATE data review and correlation to simulations;
  • experience with package modeling and interactions with packaging engineer.
