Job Description

As an analog characterization engineer, you will be involved in the characterization of the analog blocks embedded in 32-bit microcontrollers to extract the electrical performances useful for the specification of the product datasheet. You will also contribute to the development of our analog/parametric test infrastructure.


  • Participate in New Product Development teams to release new 32-bit microcontrollers.
  • Strong collaboration (worldwide) with the analog design and integration, application, and product engineering teams
  • Definition of the validation plans for analog blocks to be characterized (ADC, DAC, PLL, OPAMP etc…)
  • Specify schematic for characterization hardware
  • Automatic test bench development
  • Debug new products with design teams to identify root cause issues
  • Analysis of measurement results, correlations with design simulations and writing of characterization reports for each IP
  • Electrical performance specification of the analog blocks for the product datasheet
  • Contribute to the overall improvement of methods, quality, and optimization of the validation processes (flow, tools, test infrastructure)

Qualifications and Experience

  • Candidate should have 10+ years of related work experience
  • BSEE/BSCE minimum, MSEE/MSCE preferred from an accredited engineering school


  • Good knowledge of analog electronics
  • Solid experience on measurement methods and use of equipment such as: oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, vector network analyzer, arbitrary wave generator, multimeter, current and voltage source, etc…
  • Strong experience on:
    • equipment driver and automatic test benches development with Labview/TestStand environment.
    • characterization of analog IPs: ADC, DAC, PLL, analog comparator, quartz oscillator, Opamp…
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills (Debug)
  • Programming skills on Embedded C, Python, NI LabView/TestStand programming and script languages
  • Good computer skills:
    • familiar with Windows and MS office suite
    • data analysis tools like JMP, Excel
  • Knowledge in:
    • Microcontrollers: digital/analog functions
    • Manufacturing process to better understand the process / IP interactions
    • Hardware board design: schematic, routing (Altium designer)


  • Working knowledge of collaborative development tools: JIRA, GIT, Confluence
  • Ability to work in an international environment (Europe, Asia, USA) with different groups (Architecture, IC Design, Analog Library, Applications, Marketing, Product and Test Engineering).
