Staff System Design Engineer, Timing Products

Austin, TX


Meet our team: Timing Systems Engineering Team


The Skyworks, MSS-Timing Systems Engineering Team is an elite group of system design engineers skilled in high speed PCB designs, Multi-chip-module designs (both designs need expertise in signal integrity analysis and design, use of PCB design tools,  thermal modelling) , digital design (FPGA design, verification of mixed signal ICs), mixed-signal circuit analysis and modelling. The systems engineering team provides system and application level expertise to the IC design, software, firmware, validation and application engineering teams.  System design engineers have a deep understanding of all aspects of timing system development including product definition, platform design and validation planning. 


The role: Why it matters?


Skyworks has a broad portfolio of Timing products ranging from clock generators, network synchronization, jitter attenuators, oscillators and buffers. We are the dominant Timing supplier in a high-performance communications timing market thanks to our leading technologies. Our products heavily leverage digital technology, and are very flexible and versatile in nature. The combination of high performance and high programmability has led to many product opportunities without the high cost of new silicon development. This position is to take these opportunities and turn them into profitable products and customer designs. This position will have the opportunity to interact with our tier one customers, to work with our world class solution engineering teams and to extend our successful timing product roadmap.


You: Is this a match?
