Bringing intelligence to light and passion to innovation

The ams OSRAM Group is a global leader in optical solutions. By adding intelligence to light and passion to innovation, we enrich peoples' lives. This is what we mean by Sensing is Life. Our around 26,000 employees worldwide focus on innovation across sensing, illumination and visualization to make journeys safer, medical diagnoses more accurate and daily moments in communication a richer experience.

The Advanced Optical Sensors business provides market-leading sensor solutions that improve the human experience and well-being by sensing types of light both visible and invisible to the human eye. Key AOS applications include ambient light and proximity sensors; 1D Time-of-Flight, spectral sensors, bio sensors, as well as active noise cancelation (ANC).

Your new responsibilities

  • Responsible for design leadership and development of ultra-high performance, low noise analog solutions associated with mixed signal IC's from initial concept, until production ramp, including design for: manufacturability, yield, test, and reliability.
  • Performs and supervises detailed design, simulation, verification and validation of integrated circuits.
  • Directs and supervises block level and top-level layout actives to insure optimum circuit performance.
  • Expert level knowledge and experience designing for system / application level concerns, including: packaging, parasitics, power, die size, cost, etc.
  • Power User level knowledge of SPICE/Spectre testbench creation and simulations, including: PVT, Monte Carlo, mixed signal, modelling, optimization, etc.
  • Provides positive internal team leadership and communication, coordination of design requirements and tradeoffs, preparation for weekly meetings (internal and customer).
