Senior ASIC Engineer

Neuspera® Medical is seeking a Senior ASIC Engineer deep experience/knowledge in taking a design from concept to specification through design, tapeout, test and delivery. The qualified candidate will be capable of evaluation, selection and application of standard engineering practices, techniques and procedures. The idea candidate will have experiences working with and managing 3rd party ASIC developers and foundries. The candidate should have extensive experience in the design and test of ultra-low power electrics. The ASIC Engineer must be capable of identifying specifications from a system level, development of architectures to meet specifications, and testing samples to meet specifications. The qualified candidate in this role will also be asked to assist and, at times, mentor junior engineers.

The candidate must have experience in ASIC Design, Simulation and Verification including the use of FPGAs and EDA tools. Experience with schematic design, mixed signal simulation, and physical design is required. The candidate should be capable designing and testing custom emulation hardware using off the shelf components to emulate ASIC system architectures. Ability to work in the lab and plan for and perform initial hardware bring-up and debug is required, as is the ability to write design documentation and manage requirements compliance, including verification method traceability. Familiarity with design Configuration Management and Quality Control Processes is desired along with ability to plan/document Verification. Experience in design of electronics for medical applications is a plus.
