Job Overview

QUALCOMM is the world's leading developer of next-generation wireless and multimedia technology. QUALCOMM is committed to building a world-class organization that will lead the industry in multimedia technology.

Be a part of the Display team responsible for the development of Next Generation Display Controllers that are key to delivering vivid and stunning visual experiences in the mobile, compute, automotive and IoT markets.

We are searching for a Design Engineer with experience in high speed digital video interfaces interested in developing world-class display solutions. Successful candidates will work within a multi-disciplinary, multi-site team of architects, designers and verification engineers to help build next generation Mobile System-on-Chips (SoCs).

Successful candidates will be responsible for the design of the protocol layers of high speed digital video interfaces like DisplayPort, MIPI-DSI, Thunderbolt, HDMI, etc. and will be expected to:

  • Develop detailed understanding of relevant industry standards including functional, conformance and test specifications

  • Develop micro-architecture and module specifications

  • Model and analyze performance, area, power, and system cost tradeoffs for different micro-architectures

  • Work closely with the mixed-signal PHY team to define PHY requirements and design partitioning

  • Implement modules and sub-systems in Verilog RTL

  • Work closely with the design verification team to define verification methodology, review test plans and develop reference and bus-functional models

  • Implement and debug tests at the module, sub-system and SoC levels throughout the ASIC development cycle (pre- and post-silicon)

  • Develop and debug synthesis and timing constraints, review clocks, and layout to achieve netlist synthesis and static timing closure

  • Make significant contributions to silicon debug and analysis

Minimum Qualifications

Bachelor's degree in Science, Engineering, or related field.

Preferred Qualifications

Candidates with industry experience in the following areas are invited to apply:

  • High-speed video or data interfaces (DisplayPort, MIPI-DSI, Thunderbolt, HDMI, PCI-E, etc.)
