You'll put your technical mind to the ultimate test in this dynamic position.
The Data Path Solutions (DPS) business unit is seeking a highly motivated, hands-on experienced candidate to participate as a key contributor to the high speed interface applications engineering team. This position is based in Santa Clara, CA.
As a System Applications Engineer you will be part of a team that defines, write specifications and validate product performance on high speed equalizer/repeaters, retimers, serializer and deserializer products used in multi-gigabit data communication applications. The primary focus will be data center infrastructure and ultra-high definition video systems transporting 10+ Gbps serial data over copper transmission media.
In this position you will:
o Work closely with design, marketing and key customers in defining products that solve customers' signal integrity challenges
o Participate in trade shows, follow industry trends and industry communication standards
o Engage in product validation and testing to ensure compliance to product specifications and industry standards
o Develop high-speed evaluation modules to demonstrate product performance
o Requires considerable interaction with world-wide customers and field staff; some international travel is required
o Prepare customer collateral such as product specifications, test reports and training materials
This position requires system-level knowledge in key communication standards, hands-on experience in multi-gigabit equalization, clock and data recovery technologies (CTLE, FIR, DFE, CDR etc.) and industrial measurement techniques for equalizers/repeaters, retimers, and SerDes products used in data communication.
The ideal candidate should have experience in most of the following areas:
o Experience in high-speed technologies such as CTLE, FIR, DFE, PLL, CDR, and SerDes
o Strong background in high-speed communication standards such as Ethernet, SAS/SATA, PCIe, Infiniband, Fibrechannel etc
o Strong knowledge in high speed signal integrity - s-parameter channel modeling, PCB SI analysis, channel simulations
o Hands-on experience with high-speed equipment such as BERT, VNA, TDR, oscilloscopes and measurement techniques such as jitter analysis, de-embedding in frequency- and time-domain
o Experience running system-level IBIS-AMI channel simulations with Agilent ADS or other simulators
o Ability to develop bench validation setups to perform system validation and SI analysis of high-speed products
o Schematic capture, high speed board design and PCB SI analysis
o Strong communications skills: clear, concise and complete documentation; effective spoken communication
o Software/scripting skills (Python, Matlab, Perl)
Qualified candidates will have a minimum of a BSEE or equivalent with at least 5 years of engineering experience.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
