Analog and Mixed Signal IP Validation Engineer, Silicon | Google | Bangalore, KA

Job description:

Google is conducting for the post of Analog and Mixed Signal IP Validation Engineer.

Job duties and responsibilities:

  • Take ownership of bench-level design validation and characterization for Analog and Mixed Signal (AMS) IPs like PLL, FLL, ADC, current sensor, temperature sensor, and droop detector, to design Google’s future products.
  • Collaborate with Design and Domain Validation (DV) teams to create bare metal bench test cases for IP validation, as well as with ASIC Architecture, Design, and Pre-silicon SoC teams to implement end-to-end manufacturing test solutions.
  • Work with cross-functional teams (Design, System Architecture, DV, software, program management, operations) to deliver products to the market.
  • Develop effective production screens in collaboration with the productization test teams.
  • Characterize IP-specific Signal Integrity, Power Integrity, and performance test cases to evaluate IP performance under various operating conditions (e.g., voltage, process, temperature).

Minimum qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, or equivalent practical experience.
  • Experience working in a lab environment and automating bench equipment such as System Management Unit (SMU), Power supplies, Oscilloscope.
  • Experience with analog and mixed-signal circuits such as PLL, ADC, DAC.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Experience in using benchtop equipment such as Digital Multimeter, Oscilloscopes, Power Analyzer, Phase Noise Analyzer.
  • Experience with schematic/layout reading, board-level hardware debug.
  • Experience coding with Python/C++.
  • Experience working in a collaborative environment.
  • Knowledge of Linux OS, shell scripting, high-speed Interfaces (e.g., USB, PCIE), Serializer/Deserializer (SERDES).
  • Knowledge of Circuit Analysis, Digital VLSI, and Test methodologies.

About the job:

As a Hardware Engineer at Google, you will be part of a team that designs and builds the hardware, software, and networking technologies that power all of Google’s services. Your work will involve designing and building systems that form the core of Google’s computing infrastructure, from low-level circuit design to large system design, all the way through to high-volume manufacturing. The projects you manage will cover multiple areas, and you’ll also be responsible for monitoring vendor performance and evaluating new technologies.

As an Analog and Mixed Signal (AMS) IP validation engineer, your role will involve evaluating, testing, characterizing, and qualifying AMS IPs used in Google’s premium tier SoCs (System-on-Chip) that power various devices like mobile phones, wearables, tablets, and laptops.

In this position, you will handle all aspects of post-silicon validation for AMS IPs, which may include Phase Lock Loop (PLL), Frequency-Locked Loop (FLL), Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), current sensor, temperature sensor, and droop detector. You’ll collaborate closely with ASIC Architecture, Design, and DFT (Design for Test) teams during the pre-silicon stages to implement strategies for Design for Test/Manufacturing/Debug. Your responsibilities will also include bench-level Signal/Power Integrity and protocol validation, reviewing IP compliance reports, Production Verification Testing (PVT) characterization, ATE (Automated Test Equipment)-Bench correlation, SLT (System-Level Test)-Bench correlation, and supporting cross-functional debugging.

Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. As part of the team that combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware, you’ll contribute to creating radically helpful experiences for users. Your work will involve research, design, and development of new technologies and hardware to make computing faster, seamless, and more powerful, aiming to improve people’s lives through technology.
