Senior Principal Analog Mixed-Signal Design Engineer - RF/SiPho/TIA/CMOS/SiGe

About Marvell

At Marvell, we believe that infrastructure powers progress. That execution is as essential as innovation. That better collaboration builds better technology. Trusted by the world’s leading technology companies for 25 years, we move, store, process and secure the world’s data with semiconductor solutions designed for our customers’ current needs and future ambitions. Through a process of deep collaboration and transparency, we’re ultimately changing the way tomorrow’s enterprise, cloud, automotive, and carrier architectures transform—for the better.

The data infrastructure that our customers build has never been more critical to our global economy. It’s what’s keeping the world connected, businesses running, and information flowing. If you’re ready to excel, innovate, and truly enjoy your work, apply now for the position detailed below.

The Opportunity

Our world class group leverages our core competencies in advanced circuit design to solve the world’s ever-increasing desire to transmit more data for less power with fewer errors. We are continually first to market in Data Center, Metro and Long-Haul applications.

As a member of the design group, the candidate will be responsible for design and validation of FET and BiCMOS circuits for high-speed broadband ICs that serve these applications.

Job Responsibilities

Marvell is seeking an RF and Analog Design Engineer to contribute to the development of multi-tens of GHz Transimpedance Amplifiers TIAs. These optical interface chips are tightly coupled with our high-performance equalizers. The results of our innovative designs have made our TIAs best in class for coherent long-haul and metro systems as well as PAM4 data center systems.

In This Role You Will Be Responsible For

  • Active circuit design as well as technical leadership.
  • Leading edge optical modulator driver and transimpedance amplifier design, primarily in Silicon Germanium (SiGe) BiCMOS (Bipolar Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) technology, where circuit performance will need to transcend beyond industry leading products.
  • Developing transmission line structures and other millimeter wave structures to enable higher performance than would normally be achievable.
  • Design of hi-performance broadband analog circuits for optical front-end receivers and transmitters, including modulator and laser drivers.
  • Design of various other analog circuits including linear regulators, AGC loop, current/voltage sensors, bandgaps etc.
  • Developing microarchitecture of major circuit blocks and guiding a team of designers to implement them.
  • Working with various technologies including SiGe BiCMOS and CMOS.
  • Working with other functional groups to facilitate post-silicon validation, qualification, transition to mass production, and customer support.
