Our Outstanding Opportunity

At Ericsson, we are now investing heavily in the future 5G technology where cutting-edge development is key. We are offering a position to develop one of the most performance-critical blocks in the radio chain, i.e., the data converter. In the position creativity, research capabilities, and product development ambitions are needed for successful execution.

We are a small team where we are focusing on continuous feedback and improvements daily. The team consists of experienced analog, mixed-signal and digital designers where cooperation is the key to success. The successful candidate will have a phenomenal opportunity to develop problem solution skills and contribute to and learn from the team.

The team is responsible to develop data converter products from specification via ASIC design and verification to validation, industrialization, and internal customer integration and support. Meaning that there are several opportunities to grow within the team!

You will

  • Develop new concepts for data converter architectures suitable for integration in Ericsson’s radio base stations.
  • Focus on system-level modelling, transistor level design, layout as well as validation and production test development.
  • Participate in specification work for RF & Mixed-Signal ICs and documenting your work.

To be successful in the role you must have

  • In-depth and documented experience of high-end data converter designs concepts and implementations;
  • At least 2 years of experience in data converter development with focus on high-speed designs. Preferably with a background of object leadership or being a driver of larger mixed-signal block designs, which included several designers and successfully delivered on-time, high-quality work.
  • Expertise in calibration methods for data converters in state-of-the-art technologies
  • Extensive knowledge in RFIC design (with specific focus on top level modelling but also a schematic design, layout, and the loop in between)
  • Understanding of digital flow and architectures to understand system level decisions and implications.
  • Excellent communication skills with RF engineers;
  • Detailed track record of successful RF CMOS designs in advanced nodes;
  • Experience in Cadence/Spectre-RF as well as modelling tools such as Matlab
  • Knowledge of the industrialization of RFICs, such development of production test and ASIC qualification are a desired.
