  • Strong digital and mixed signal circuits design skills including:
    • Analysing system requirements and defining specifications for digital designs
    • Designing, verifying, and implementing chip-level circuits and performing simulations using state-of-the-art EDA tools
    • Tape-out experience of digital building blocks as part of a system-on-chip.
    • Experience with ARM series processors and peripherals
    • Developing mixed-signal behavioural models for validation of architectural choices
    • Documentation of all design related issues and contributing to datasheets, architectural specifications, and development plans.
    • Working with external design houses on implementation, simulation, layout, and validation
    • Supporting silicon validation and debugging
    • Contributing to the development of CTT’s intellectual property portfolio
  • Exceptional analytical and organisational skills, coupled with attention to detail
  • Excellent spoken and written English, with clear communication skills and an understanding of good documentation practices

And some beneficial skills (not essential) may involve:

  • Master’s degree or higher in a related field
  • At least ten years of relevant work experience
  • Experience with synthesis, place and route of complex system-on-chip designs
  • Experience with piezoelectric devices and/or touch screen technology
  • Experience of ADC design

The candidate must be prepared to get hands-on and work in a fast-paced and dynamic work environment with a passionate team of engineers. The candidate should possess a strong motivation for start-up culture and success through stock options. There is an excellent potential for professional growth and financial gain.
