Xilinx Serdes Technology Group develops high-performance, multi-protocol wireline transceivers in state-of-the-art CMOS process. We are currently seeking an analog/mixed-signal design intern to join our world-class team.
The candidate will be responsible for the design of a high-speed ADC-based receiver or DAC-based transmitter
- Define DAC/ADC circuit architecture optimized for a PAM4 electrical an optical links
- Perform link level simulation in Matlab or HSPICE to proof the architecture
- Design circuit components (e.g. SAR-ADC, S/H, Analog Front-end) required to implement the architecture in advanced FinFET process
This position is open for Ph.D students interested in pursuing career in analog/mixed signal circuit design. The candidates must have taken a graduate-level circuit design classes covering analog/digital circuit design and data-converters. Hands-on experience using circuit simulators as part of a class design project and project/lab-work experience in high-speed circuit design and high-speed data converters are a plus.
