Senior SI Engineer

DTS is looking for a highly skilled Senior PCB Designer with SI experience to join our team in Penang, Malaysia.

Job Description:

Designing Printed Circuit Board layouts for semiconductor test applications utilizing Cadence Allegro Software. Support Signal Integrity and Power Integrity analysis at the PCB board level to meet noise specifications & delivery requirements.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Produce PCB layouts for mixed signal / RF / high-speed designs using Cadence Allegro Software.
  • Generate manufacturing files and supporting docs for the designs, including gerber, fab, and assembly drawings.
  • Work directly with applications and local engineers to complete all aspects of the ATE PCB development process.
  • Power integrity analysis for PCB (e.g. layout extraction, electromagnetic / HSPICE simulation, etc.) to meet specs.
  • Optimize layer stack-up & power plane assignment to minimize voltage noise.
  • Signal trace length matching and impact to timing.
  • Crosstalk analysis and reduction.
  • Full-wave simulation and model extraction for signal integrity and power integrity analysis.

Experience Requirements:

  • Minimum of 3 to 5 years layout expertise with the Cadence Allegro design platform is a must.
  • Solid working knowledge of the constraints manager and design for manufacturability.
  • Design experience for ATE applications on Teradyne, Advantest and other platforms is a plus.
  • Must possess good electrical knowledge and experience with multilayer high speed, RF and power designs.
  • Solid background on transmission line theory and in-depth knowledge of electromagnetics, and PCB layout techniques.
  • Experience with SI simulation tools (e.g. Synopsis HSPICE, Ansys HFSS, Q3D, Cadence PowerSI, PowerDC, and Agilent ADS).
  • Must understand the PCB fabrication process, and design for manufacturability
  • Knowledge on other PCB design software (e.g. Pads / Altium) is a plus

Additional Required Skills:

  • Professional attitude and being a team player is a must.
  • Well organized with good follow-through skills.
  • Good problem solving and debug capabilities.
  • Ability to work independently, manage deadlines, and multi-task with minimal direction.
