AMS Layout Design Engineer

Markham, ON, Canada

Job Type

Full Time

About the Role

As a Layout Design Engineer at TSS you will be working closely with both our digital and analog teams to create extraordinary AMS designs. The right candidate will thrive in a fast-paced environment working on various levels of the design with endless learning opportunities.


  • Work closely with schematic design team to do complex layout for mixed signal and analog circuits

  • Work closely with digital place and route team to ensure full custom layout can be integrated

  • Floorplan of high-speed IPs and IOs such as CDR, RX, TX, GPIOs etc.

  • Deliver clean layout views to internal and external customers

  • Debug and fix LVS,DRC,ERC etc

  • Ensure layout meets reliability and spec requirements (PEX, EM, IR, Self-heating, PERC)

  • Propose and implement layout design flow improvements as needed


  • Typically requires 2+ years of experience in analog/mixed-signal layout design of deep SubMicron CMOS circuits (28nm and below preferred).

  • Experience dealing with and generating different Physical views (LEF, GDS, DEF etc).

  • Experience building layout with stringent matching, speed, area and power requirements

  • Experience with custom and standard cell-based floor planning and hierarchical layout assembly.

  • Great understanding of IR drop, RC delay, electro-migration, self-heating and cross capacitance.

  • High-level proficiency in interpretation of DRC, ERC, LVS, etc. reports.

  • Knowledge of industry leading layout tools (Virtuoso, Custom Compiler or similar).

  • Scripting/flow automation experience in PERL, PYTHON or SKILL is a plus, but not required.

  • Experience with layout of SerDes IP such as TX, RX, PLL is a plus
