Job Description

Job Detail

We are looking for Power Systems engineering professionals at all levels of experience from Principal to entry level (assumes power related academic history), and depending on your experience level and area of technical expertise you will participate in the definition and verification of a variety of analog power systems while partnering with other Qualcomm engineering teams like Digital, RF and Mixed-Signal in a fast-paced environment. These systems consist of switch-mode power supplies and linear voltage regulators for a variety of core, peripheral and charging applications.

Responsibilities on the team are roughly divided between system architecture and verification with significant overlap between both areas. Examples of tasks required of each include:


Define and implement state of the art power systems and circuits for a variety of mobile devices and platforms.

Research, specification and design of switch-mode power systems for chargers, USB interfaces, backlighting systems, etc.

Power grid modeling, ultra-low-power system architecture and experience with modeling languages like VerilogAMS, VerilogA and VerilogPLI.


Writing C or C++ code on an advanced test platform to generate programs that test/verify the functionality of very complex analog and mixed-signal power systems.

Work with common lab equipment such as power supplies, oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, logic analyzers, JTAG debugger, frequency counters, etc.

Knowledge in power, mixed-signal, or analog PCB design and debug including CAD interface.

Applicants should have significant academic or industrial experience in the designing and verifying full-custom power management circuits, systems and chipsets with multiple voltage domains in BiCMOS, bipolar, and CMOS technologies for medium to highly integrated applications. Specific experience in high current monolithic DC-DC converters and switch mode battery chargers along with strength in device physics, ultra-low-power design techniques and lab skills are also essential.

About Qualcomm

QUALCOMM Incorporated, incorporated in 1985, designs, manufactures and markets digital wireless telecommunications products and services based on its code division multiple access (CDMA) technology and other technologies. The Company operates through four segments: Qualcomm CDMA Technologies (QCT); Qualcomm Technology Licensing (QTL); Qualcomm Wireless & Internet (QWI), and Qualcomm Strategic Initiatives (QSI). QCT is a developer and supplier of integrated circuits and system software for wireless voice and data communications, multimedia functions and global positioning. QTL grants licenses to use portions of its intellectual property portfolio, which includes certain patent rights essential to and/or useful in the manufacture and sale of CDMA products. In December 2007, the Company acquired San SoftMax Inc. In March 2008, the Company acquired Xiam Technologies Limited (Xiam), an Ireland-based provider of wireless content targeting solutions.
