Job Description

This job will be part of the Keysight Technology Organization (KTO), which helps Keysight be first to market, focusing on top opportunities and market trends that address unmet needs. Within the KTO, Keysight Laboratories is focusing on the development of state-of-the-art analog and mixed-signal application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), and monolithic millimeter-wave integrated circuits (MMICs) and subsystems that provide Keysight’s test and measurement products with a competitive advantage in performance and cost.

 

As an Analog and Mixed-Signal (BiCMOS) ASIC / MMIC Design Engineer at Keysight Technologies, you will apply your IC design knowledge and experience to design Analog and Mixed-Signal ASICs and MMICs that enable Keysight’s next generation of measurement/test equipment.  To identify what ICs are needed in current and future Keysight instruments you will be involved in system-level analysis to identify the needed IC performance with respect to the overall system requirements.

 

Ideally this role will be based in Colorado Springs, CO, where the majority of team is located. But we will consider the Santa Rosa, or Santa Clara, CA locations, where we have other team members.
