Northrop Grumman Entry Level Direct Analog Mixed Signal IC Designer 2 - Baltimore in Baltimore, Maryland

Did you know that Northrop Grumman's Advanced Technology Lab is developing a new family of superconducting digital

logic known as Reciprocal Quantum Logic (RQL)? On a gate for gate basis, RQL consumes five orders of magnitude less

power than CMOS while running at significantly higher clock speeds. Having demonstrated its performance with basic

circuits, we are now developing processors, memories, and larger systems.

We are seeking an Analog/Mixed Signal Integrated Circuit Designer who will be responsible for the design and layout of

superconducting integrated circuits to support the development of Northrop Grumman's patented RQL circuit family. You

will use your skills as an Integrated Circuit designer while learning about superconducting circuit design.

Tasks will include schematic creation, circuit simulation, manual layout, verification (Layout vs. Schematic and Design Rule

Checking), and parasitic extraction for a variety of superconducting circuits. The right candidate will be comfortable in a

dynamic environment with rapidly developing technologies and tools. Verilog-A or Verilog-AMS and electronics test lab

experience are a plus.

Basic Qualifications:

Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or other related technical degree.

Knowledge and/or experience with one or more of the following: IC custom design tools (eg Cadence or Mentor) for schematic capture; circuit simulation and full custom layout; mixed-signal circuit design experience (digital and analog); verification skills utilizing Cadence Assura

Ability to obtain and maintain a US Government Secret Security Clearance.

Knowledge/Experience with Analog/Mixed Signal Integrated Circuit Design.

Preferred Qualifications:

-Active Secret clearance

  • Experience performing chip level integration

  • Strong design automation skills

  • Experience with analog behavioral modeling

  • Electronics test lab experience

  • Experience with low-temperature experimental measurements, microwave engineering
