Tasks

Your technical challenge: Design of digital circuits for MEMS microphone mixed-signal ASICs

As a digital IC designer with TDK, you will be involved in all phases of development from pre-study to evaluation of digital and mixed-signal ASICs for MEMS microphones. You will have following responsibilities:

  • Study, specification, design and verification of high-quality digital and mixed-signal ICs
  • Write digital specifications for mixed-signal ICs, make area and power estimations
  • interaction with internal ASIC development team (both Poland and Denmark sites) and product development in Germany to ensure optimal utilization of the IC
  • Write documentation

Requirements

Your competences within digital IC design

  • You are a dynamic and highly motivated engineer who owns a  with at least two years of working experience in digital IC design
  • You have experience with front-end ASIC or FPGA prototyping in VHDL and/or Verilog and/or SystemVerilog
  • You have experience with front-end verification, preferably in SystemVerilog + UVM, to write directed tests, constrained randomized tests and to gather and interpret metrics such as code/condition/FSM/toggle/functional coverage
  • You are theoretical well founded and/or experience within the field of digital signal processing (DSP)
  • You have experience with digital synthesis, logic equivalence checking (LEC) and Static Timing Analysis (STA) Experience with UPF and/or CPF and DFT and ATPG is a plus
  • Experience with scripting and programming languages such as Python and C is a plus
  • Experience and passion for digital audio is a plus
  • Experience with any of the following protocols and techniques is a plus: SPI, I2C, I2S, Soundwire (MIPI), FSM design
  • Fluent English (written and spoken)

Personally, you are the type that sees the benefit in cooperating and mutual knowledge sharing with your colleagues, and you have a positive attitude. You have a sense for detail while still being able to meet your deadlines. In relation to experience, you are able to handle several tasks simultaneously without losing perspective or sense for detail.

Unique opportunity at TDK

At TDK you will benefit from working close with the MEMS design group, getting insight into the system trade-off, being involved in designing high performance, low-cost microphones for high mass production and influence the design decisions from the beginning of the development phase.

During the course of a year at TDK you will be typically involved into:

  • 1-2 ASIC projects aimed at product development
  • Up to 3 MPW runs aimed at development of ASIC sub-blocks for new product generations
