It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products.

This is the Invention Age and this is where you come in.General Summary Digital Oversees definition, design, verification, and documentation for ASIC development for a variety of products.

Determines architecture design, logic design, and system simulation.

Defines module interfaces/formats for simulation.

Evaluates all aspects of the process flow from high-level design to synthesis, place and route, and timing and power use.

Analyzes equipment to establish operation data, conducts experimental tests, and evaluates results.

Uses System tools, such as National Instrument (NI) products, LabVIEW, and MathWorks MATLAB, SIMULINK, VISIO and other toolboxes.

Uses language such as HDL, C, PERL.

Provides technical expertise for next generation initiatives.

Analog Oversees definition, design, verification, and documentation for ASIC development for a variety of products.

Determines architecture design and circuit specifications based on system level requirements.

Is actively involved in all aspects of the design from system definition/simulation to circuit design and simulation.

Heavy involvement in overseeing layout and silicon evaluation is also expected.

Uses design tools such as Cadence ADE, MathWorks MATLAB and others.

Provides technical expertise for next generation initiatives.
