Early career - Cellular IP Design Engineer (m/f/d)

Munich, Bavaria-Bayern, Germany


Role Number:200476248
In this role you will be key part of the Cellular SoC IP team in Munich or Linz. As an IP Design engineer you are responsible for developing highly customized hardware IPs for digital signal processing and integrating IPs into SoCs. You will work closely with SoC architects, System engineers, Design verification, Silicon validation teams, STA/DfT/Power specialists, and Physical designers, to develop IPs & SoCs that meet Apple devices’ power, performance, and area goals.


As a Cellular design engineer, you will be responsible for developing, integrating & verifying IP sub-components for a cellular transceivers System on Chip. You would be responsible for defining and driving the implementation, timing closure, and power optimizations in close collaboration with a multi-disciplinary group from system, digital-, analog & firmware design, to design verification, and physical design teams which will support your daily work. Your work will not be limited to design and will cover end-to-end responsibility across the project life-cycle of the IPs developed from concept to design, to verification, integration, silicon validation, and finally in-field operation.
