Senior Analog Mixed-Signal Circuit Design Engineer

Ferric is a technology startup based in New York City that is pioneering an entirely new approach to power delivery for Integrated Circuits and Electronic Assemblies. This approach leverages Ferric’s integration of thin-film magnetic inductors with CMOS semiconductor technology to enable a significant improvement in the integration density and efficiency of voltage regulators (VRs) compared with current commercially available technologies.

As a Ferric Design Engineer, you contribute to building the most advanced cutting edge integrated voltage regulators, leveraging Ferric’s industry-leading on-chip inductor technology. These products have applications ranging from high-power modern SoCs to ultra-low power Mobile platforms including wearable devices.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Design analog and mixed-signal circuits meeting architectural requirements and technical specifications in various CMOS nodes

  • Actively contribute to the architectural definition of the design and chip integration and work with business and application team to define specifications for upcoming IC's

  • Research and investigate new circuit techniques to help improve Ferric IC's

  • Perform analysis, design and verification simulations to ensure building blocks meet specifications at the schematic level and after post-layout extraction

  • Document assigned blocks, and hold design review meetings and participate in the reviews 

  • Work cross-functionally with Characterization, Test, and Application Engineers to verify, characterize and debug owned circuit blocks

Minimum Qualifications:

  • PhD or MSEE with 3+ years of experience in full-custom CMOS design

  • Design skills in areas such as bandgaps, ADC's/DAC's, PLL's, DLL's, LDO's, temperature sensors, switched-capacitor circuits, op-amps, comparators, and biasing circuits.
