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)
