Job description:

Ciena is looking for a highly skilled Signal Integrity engineer.

  • The candidate will be involved in the Signal Integrity Simulations (pre and post-layout) of high-speed interfaces on Networking Platforms for our next-generation carrier-class networking products across the product line.
  • This position will focus on Modeling/designing high-density I/O’s and high-speed interfaces on PCBs, packages, connectors, and probe cards with respect to parameters such as reflections, bandwidth, and crosstalk.
  • You will be required to lead to creation and execution of signal/power integrity simulation plans.
  • You will also be called on to support the debugging of any subsequent issues over the life of the product.
  • You will also be required to Develop test procedures for Signal Integrity testing. Maintaining the relevant test equipment will be another aspect of your job profile.
  • The candidate will be expected to provide a basic assessment of his/her own work including effort estimation, status reporting, etc. The candidate will get enough exposure for continuous learning and developing skills in the related domain.

Job duties and responsibilities:

As an HW SI engineer, you would be involved in the following:

  • Pre-layout simulations of all the high-speed interfaces that includes, DDR4, PCIe Gen3/4, USB and SERDES interfaces uptp 112GHz.
  • Modelling different components on board including driver, receiver, connectors, passive components and vias, etc.
  • Review the layout from SI perspective and work with the CAD team to make things better.
  • Run post-layout simulations to check and confirm the compliance of all the critical interfaces.
  • Perform electrical testing on the relevant interfaces once the board arrives to check the compliance to corresponding standards and identify/analyze differences between simulation results and test results.
  • Attend meetings, report progress, and take technical leadership to debug the issues.
  • Help investigate and collect information to resolve process or design issues found in a current design or in previous designs.
  • Provide guidance and mentoring to junior engineers hired into the team who may be tasked to perform some of the above duties.
