What will you do at Ciena as a Senior Analog / Mixed Signal Engineer?
The Wavelogic family of products are widely used in Ciena's optical fiber transmission solutions and are one of the main contributors to Ciena's success in the telecommunications industry.
You will be joining a vibrant team with a proven track-record of success over 30-years of evolution and revolution in the advancement of high-speed circuits used in broadband fiber-optic modems. This team pioneered the introduction of the world’s first high-speed DAC and ADC analog macros that ushered in the era of coherent fiber-optic product solutions.
To further strengthen our team, we are looking for a hardworking analog design engineer who will participate in the design of advanced high-speed analog circuits in the latest deep-submicron CMOS and/or BiCMOS technologies. Your role as an analog designer will be to deliver advanced high-speed circuits within a larger team who are responsible for a full mixed signal IP block solution that will be integrated into the Wavelogic family of products.
These analog macros include design and deliver of electrical interface-facing DAC and ADC based SERDES solutions for 112G and 224G, optical-line-facing high-speed DAC and ADC circuits interfacing with optical modulators and detectors, transimpedance amplifiers, modulator driver circuits, and critical precision analog circuits for control and monitoring functions, etc..
In this role:
You will be responsible for the complete and detailed design of the analog blocks assigned to you. You will interact with layout team members who may assist with some aspects of the overall implementation through to full GDSII delivery to Ciena’s integration partner.
