Touch Sensor and Signal Processing Architect, Qualcomm, Inc.

A multidisciplinary engineering team at Qualcomm is looking for a system design engineer with experience designing discrete or integrated touch sensing solution for interfacing capacitive multi-touch sensors.

As a member of this team you will be responsible for analysis and improvement of touch performance through algorithm analysis, implementation and optimal chipset partitioning.

 

[Responsibility] Develop power optimized solutions for several classes of capacitive multi-touch sensors delivering top-of-the-line user experience. This role will require modeling, simulation, prototyping, characterization and competitive analysis of hardware designs. Expect to work closely with hardware, firmware and chip designers to implement end-to-end functionality in process technology of choice.

[Education Requirements] Required: Bachelor's, Electrical Engineering with 7+ years of relevant industry experience
Preferred: Master's, Electrical Engineering with Digital Signal Processing focus with 5+ years of relevant industry experience.

[Skills/Experience]

  • Experience developing / implementing capacitive touch sensing algorithms for embedded environments. Experience with touch sensor technology on smartphones or tablets is a plus.
  • Strong background in digital signal processing (DSP). Expertise in DSP algorithms like detection, equalization, filtering, synchronization, interpolation and tracking preferred.
  • Proven experience implementing noise avoidance and mitigation techniques in sampled analog systems.
  • Experience developing /prototyping DSP algorithms in MatLab or FPGA based rapid prototyping systems.
  • Strong electrical engineering background and familiarity with low-power mixed-signal design. Knowledge of semiconductor technology and capability to conduct trade-off analysis for different implementations.
  • Experience instituting design of experiments for characterization, benchmarking and failure analysis.
  • Familiarity with LCD drive technologies and interface protocols is a plus.
  • Familiarity with embedded peripheral interface protocols (SPI, I2C and USB) is desirable.
  • Software development experience on real-time embedded systems using ANSI C is desirable. Knowledge of Qualcomm processors would be a plus.
  • Self-motivation and strong problem solving ability.
    Good communication (oral and written) and interpersonal skills.
