At Northrop Grumman, our employees have incredible opportunities to work on revolutionary systems that impact people's lives around the world today, and for generations to come. Our pioneering and inventive spirit has enabled us to be at the forefront of many technological advancements in our nation's history - from the first flight across the Atlantic Ocean, to stealth bombers, to landing on the moon. We look for people who have bold new ideas, courage and a pioneering spirit to join forces to invent the future, and have fun along the way. Our culture thrives on intellectual curiosity, cognitive diversity and bringing your whole self to work - and we have an insatiable drive to do what others think is impossible. Our employees are not only part of history, they're making history.
The EDIC group delivers full-custom ICs to provide the core functionality of our Advanced Multifunction Sensor products. In support of that activity, we are seeking a Senior Principal Analog Integrated Circuit Design Engineer for design and implementation of the analog section of the circuit which provides regulated voltages currents as well as sensing RF signals and other circuit operating conditions. The analog values are converted to digital data for use by host system to allow accurate control and instrumentation. Most of our designs operate at radio and microwave frequencies but we also design circuits to operate in the optical frequency range from Long Wave IR to the visible part of the spectrum. For these circuits the analog circuitry is in the primary signal path and provides wide dynamic range signal processing and conversion.
Bachelor's Degree in STEM with 9 years of relevant experience, Master's with 7 years of relevant experience or PhD with 4 years
Mastery of transistor level circuit design and analysis skills.
Good understanding of fundamental semiconductor device physics.
Understanding of common analog circuits such as amplifiers, bandgap volage references, voltage regulators as well as A/D and D/A converters.
Signal processing functions such as Integrators, differentiators, filters.
Familiarity with schematic entry and simulation tools such as Cadence ADE, Explorer/Assembler, Virtuoso, and Spectre. Use of the tools to characterize DC and AC performance such as bandwidth, gain/phase margin, PSRR over process/voltage/temperature corners.
Should be familiar with integrated circuit layout and best practices to ensure good component matching and minimize errors due to parasitic effects.
Familiarity with use of IC Layout tools is not a requirement but candidates with some experience of layout implementation or a willingness to learn would be strongly preferred.
