Digital Design Engineer

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States


Role Number:200214306
Join our team at Apple developing complex digital IPs for Apple’s custom mixed-signal integrated circuits! We have already shipped hundreds of millions of chips into Apple’s existing product lines and are developing new chips for future product lines! As a member of our mixed-signal ASIC team, you will be responsible for crafting sophisticated digital IPs for Apple power conversion and system management IC’s. You will work with the system architects, product teams, verification engineers, and analog designers, crafting block level specifications and implementing the designs. You will own the creation of the blocks, and take them through the concept, implementation, and validation phases, and then into mass production. Learn and use state of the art digital ASIC development flows to implement your designs. We supply silicon to Apple’s industry leading hardware development teams and collaborate closely with them. We have a close-knit, robust team in need of enthusiastic digital design engineers to develop new ASIC IP’s. We pride ourselves for being an especially diverse team that values innovative approaches to deliver creativity, high productivity, and industry leading results. Join us in building Apple’s next generation products. Do you want to be a part of building the “surprise and delight” in Apple’s future products?
