Intel Analog Engineer - SK in Folsom, California
This position is associated with the sale of Intel's NAND memory and storagebusiness to SK hynix (You can read more about the transaction in the press release - https://newsroom.intel.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/11/2020/10/nand-memory-news-q-a.pdf). The transaction will enhance the resources and potential of the business' storage solutions, including client and enterprise SSDs, in the rapidly growing NAND Flash space amid the era of big data.
This is an exciting time to be at Intel - come join our team as a Analog Engineer and work on one of the most advanced 3DNAND and SSD technology portfolios in the world. As the global leader in the semiconductor industry, Intel possesses many industry-leading SSD technologies including the most capable Quadruple Level Cell (QLC) NAND Flash products. As a Analog Engineer, you will be part of a world-class team that will transition to lead the SSD business at SK hynix.
This position aligns to Phase 2 of the transaction, which includes NAND technology and component development along with fab operations. Employees aligned to Phase 2 will continue to be employed by Intel and will continue to develop NAND technology and components and manufacture NAND wafers at the fab. Phase 2 of the transaction is expected to close in March 2025, at which time employees aligned to this phase of the transaction will transition employment to SK hynix.
You will be a member of the Non-volatile memory Solutions Group working on NAND memory products as an Analog/Mixed-signal/IO Design engineer.
Your responsibilities will include (but are not limited to):
NAND circuit design, validation, reliability analysis, timing/chip-planning, layout interaction, extraction and co-optimization.
Top level analog system design and integration, intensive analog, IO and mixed-signal validation and debug. Process, device, template evaluation, and characterization.
Understand and lead methodology development.
Additional responsibilities include the post-silicon electrical validation, post silicon debug, and high volume manufacturing support in the circuit.
You will also be responsible for interfacing with cross functional teams (technology, architecture, product engineering etc.) and maybe leading small teams during different phases of product development in addition to owning design tasks.
Demonstrating cross team interface skill along with good written and oral communication skills.
Designs, develops, modifies and evaluates complex analog and mixed signal electronic parts, components or integrated circuitry for analog and mixed signal electronic equipment and other hardware systems.
Determines creative design approaches and parameters.
Analyzes equipment to establish operating data. Conducts experimental tests and evaluates results.
Applies and uses independent evaluation to selects components and equipment based on analysis of specifications and reliability.
Evaluates practical capability of vendor to support product development.
Also includes Analog, MixedSignal and RF Development Engineers with specialized skills and expertise in developing Monolithic Integrated Circuits for wireless and wireline communications systems and products using CMOS, BiCMOS, SiGe, GaAs Process technologies.
Minimum qualifications are required to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.
MS in electrical Engineering (EE/ECE)
