Job Description

Do you have a BS degree in engineering and at least 5 years of experience with mixed analog/digital IC design?

Would you love to work for a company that develops innovative technologies and medical devices that save and enhance the quality of life for millions of individuals living with cardiovascular disorders?

This might be the right opportunity for you!!!


The IC Design Engineer is a Staff level position in the Integrated Circuit Design Department within MSEI.  It involves making contributions to and active involvement in aspects of IC design for general purpose blocks for Neuro Technology and other products including IP level circuit development, circuit verification and circuit design and simulation, layout floor-planning, and documentation.  This position reports to the Director of IC Design in Houston and will closely with the VLSI Group Leader in Oregon.


  • Design and Verification of mixed-signal IC functional IP blocks for implantable medical products.
  • Involved with and provide some leadership in all aspects of IC design including concept/specification development, design partitioning, block level design, detailed circuit design, circuit simulation, layout floor-planning, transistor level layout, bench verification and testing, test-vector development, and documentation.
  • Design very low-power, low-voltage analog IC functional blocks including voltage/current references, operational amplifiers, comparators, switched-capacitor circuits (amplifiers, filters, charge pumps, etc.), ADCs and DACs, oscillators, switching power circuits, etc.
  • Using MatLab, to perform theoretical analysis of behavioral level and system level design ideas for mixed signal circuits and systems including circuit implementation
  • Collaborate and work effectively with other members of the IC design group and with teams in other design centers.
  • Other duties may be assigned at the discretion of the manager


  • BS/MS degree in Electrical Engineering with 5-10 years’ experience in mixed analog/digital IC design is preferred.
  • Experience with the use of Cadence tools like Analog Artist, AMS/WREAL modeling, Spectre/RF, and Xcelium DMS  simulation tools is highly desired.
  • Experience with the use of Cadence Verilog (XL/NC/ Xcelium), Virtuoso/XL layout, PVS Verification/extraction tools and other system simulation tools and timing analysis tools will be beneficial.
  • Some knowledge or experience in system level simulation and other synthesis products are added benefits


Preferable skills are in the areas of Neuro stimulation design are highly desirable, along with skills in power management and rechargeable battery circuit design for implantable products is desired.   Architectural tradeoffs in mixed signal design including design of power regulation and optimization skills are essential.


  • While performing the duties of this job, the employee is regularly required to be independently mobile.
  • The employee is also required to interact with a computer for extended periods of time, and communicate with co-workers.
  • Must be able to travel to other office locations.
