Job Description :
Client is NOT considering visa candidates at this point of time

EDVT/PCB board design
Sunnyvale, CA
6+ months contract
Rate: $40/hr on W2

Key skills required for the job are:
Develop advanced high density printed circuit board (PCB) for Infinera next generation coherent PIC (Photonic Integrated Circuit) and DSP modules
Design, simulate, analyze, characterize electrical performance of the above electronic circuits
Write with clarity detailed hardware functional specification, test plan, and test reports
Supervise PCB placement and layout
Work closely with cross functional product development teams in PIC module, ASIC, firmware, mechanical, and test software
In addition, the successful candidate will have a specific focus towards high speed serial link (SerDes) architecture and circuit assignments.
These include:
Design, layout, and thorough System HW characterization of high speed Integrated SerDes circuits in various channel environments spanning multiple PCBs and high speed connectors
Evaluation and selection of SerDes interconnect PHY topologies, transmitter and receiver capabilities, parameter tuning, and related clocking / power supply considerations to meet critical performance and robustness objectives
Development and documentation of hardware requirements and specifications for system switch fabric architectures and subcomponents (chassis and card
Perform circuit simulation, in-lab testing, and methodical characterization of SerDes circuits
Design with high emphasis on noise, jitter, and signal crosstalk suppression
Design with high emphasis on compact size/miniaturization appropriate for dense boards with multiple optical/electronic channels in parallel.
Work with and drive suppliers to optimize tuning parameters and perform root cause/corrective action of defects and under-performing links. Suppliers would include both external vendors and internal (INFN ASICs
Scope a project and technically manage it across organizational boundaries. Needs good communication skills and ability to analyze/present data and determine/drive next steps.
