Arm improves people’s lives by enabling the intelligence in affordable, easy-to-use electronic products that transform the way we live and work. We work in partnership with a global network of leading technology companies which are using our smart low-power technology. Together we are shaping the future of a better world.

    The team in Bangalore will work on all aspects physical design and tape-outs in the area of security vulnerability protections. The analog engineering team will be responsible for delivering solutions against Arm IP and hardware platform roadmaps which includes circuit design and sign-off, integration and verification, analog layout and physical sign-off, post silicon characterization and debug.

    Job Purpose

    Experienced Analog Design engineer will be responsible for creating circuit designs in the area of hardware security. He will need to perform circuit design and simulation, interact with Layout engineering and on occasion with digital P&R team. Senior engineers are expected to play a tech lead role as well as develop team of Analog engineers.

    The technology area will range from the mature nodes (65nm/55nm) down to the most aggressive Finfet nodes, will be on bulk as well as FDSOI processes.

    Experienced Analog Design engineere will be responsible for the definition, design, verification, monitoring layout and characterization of the analog IP, as per the Arm security IP hardware roadmap. Candidate would be expected to work closely with teams in US, UK, India and other Arm locations on need basis. Candidate will work with digital designers (P&R) on digital to analog interface + analog DFT and test.
