What does an Analog Design Engineer do?

Analog design engineers design, develop, and maintain analog electronic circuitry systems. They will often work closely with R&D (research and development) to collaborate on innovative approaches to electronics system design. These specialists perform measurements and testing to ensure the achieved performance meets target specifications. They plan and oversee all stages of product development and design, and also are often responsible for troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair.

Analog design engineers would typically have at least a master’s degree in electrical engineering, although many employers prefer candidates with a PhD in that area, often coupled with several years of professional experience involving hands-on experience with analog design tools. Expertise with analog building blocks, logic design skills, familiarity with system and behavioral modeling, or other specialized training and expertise are all advantages.

What responsibilities are common for Analog Design Engineer jobs?
  • Conduct trade studies, identify and present alternate design options.
  • Perform signal integrity analysis for package and silicon die level and give out recommendations that help to meet the required specifications.
  • Interact with cross functional teams to ensure the proper design/implementation of high speed interfaces.
  • Through the use of Model-based Engineering, DevSecOps and Agile practices we continue to evolve how we deliver critical national defense products and capabilities for the warfighter.
  • Under minimum supervision, perform analog circuit design and analysis to support development of new product.
  • Scope of responsibility also includes verification of CCA designs and compliance to system level requirements and validation at the system level.
  • Coordinate with members of multi'functional teams to develop innovative solutions for implementation of electrical design with the greater electro-mechanical and propulsion system.
  • Position may require occasional travel to meet with various customers, in both government and industry, and to interface with suppliers.
What are the typical qualifications for Analog Design Engineer jobs?
  • Bachelor's or Graduate's Degree in computer engineering or electrical engineering.
  • Experience with DDR Memory, FPGA, SERDES, C, MATLAB, and CAD software and systems.
  • Experience with microprocessors, embedded processors, board design, and computing.
  • Working knowledge of computing, schematic capture, mechanisms, and transducers.
  • Experience with interfaces, debugging, amplifiers, and topologies.
  • Can collaborate with others.
