General Electric Mixed-Signal IC Designer in Niskayuna, New York

Job Description Summary

As a Lead Mixed-Signal IC Designer, you will be an integral part of a multi-disciplinary circuit design team pushing against the limits of CMOS performance to develop state-of-the-art mixed-signal electronics for high-technology GE products.

Job Description

Essential Responsibilities

You will contribute to the generation of new ideas and concepts by conducting research and development efforts in design of low-noise, high-fidelity, harsh-environment, and high-temperature mixed-signal electronics.

You will:

  • Design complex, multi-channel, high-performance, mixed-signal electronic devices that push the limits of power consumption, noise, speed, bit-depth, and size

  • Integrate digital signal processing and control electronics for optimal system performance, power consumption, and cost.

  • Transition designs into GE products

  • Be responsible for all segments of the ASIC development cycle: architecture design, process selection, circuit design, simulation, design validation, and testing

  • Contribute to vital tasks on technology programs and assist in transferring technology to GE businesses, vendors, and strategic partners

  • Effectively communicate results by preparing written reports and making presentations describing analyses performed, solutions developed, and value obtained


  • Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering or related scientific field with a concentration in Mixed Signal IC design

  • Proven design and analysis skills in the area of Analog-to-Digital conversion and signal processing

  • First-hand experience of a complete mixed-signal ASIC design, including fabrication and testing

  • Experience with low noise and low power design

  • Proficiency in CMOS/BiCMOS designs

  • Proficiency in MATLAB programming

  • Proficiency in circuit analysis using modeling software (SPICE, SABER, ELDO, SPECTRE)

  • Legal authorization to work in the U.S. is required; we will not sponsor individuals at the Masters level for employment visas, now or in the future, for this job opening

  • Must be willing to work out of an office located in Niskayuna, NY

  • Must be 18 years or older

  • You must submit your application for employment on the careers page at to be considered

Desired Characteristics

  • Doctorate Degree in Electrical Engineering, Physics or related field with a concentration in Analog IC design

  • Hardware design experience with VHDL and/or Verilog digital hardware description languages, including implementation of control logic, digital signal processing, and/or communication links in a mixed-signal IC or FPGA implementation

  • Demonstrated experience in ASIC, SoC, and/or FPGA design integration

  • Expertise in signal processing and/or DSP design

  • Familiarity with analog design in deep submicron processes (<60nm)

  • High integrity application experience, with a focus on avionic or energy applications (Safety Critical i.e. DO-178, DO-254, ASIL/ISO-26262, IEC 61508).

  • Familiarity with high temperature SOI, GaN, or SiC design

  • Exposure to medical, sensor, high temperature, harsh environment, or novel semiconductor electronics

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

  • Strong interpersonal skills

  • Ability and desire to work in a team environment

This role is restricted to U.S. persons (i.e., U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and other protected individuals under the Immigration and Naturalization Act, 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3)) due to access to export-controlled technology. GE will require proof of status prior to employment.
