Job description

Within the Infineon analog mixed-signal (IC) design flow reliability checks are performed to analyze voltage drop and electro migration behavior of the circuits during development and for sign-off. Infineon is using Ansys’ Apache/Totem software to accomplish this. In order to validate Totem results we will run a comparison with Spice simulators.
Voltage drop can be calculated for small circuits also by a pure analog Spice simulation on a fully extracted post-layout netlist. Therefore a comparison of Totem and simulation results can be done and thus an indirect verification of the parasitic extraction.

In this student job you will:
  • Select suitable analog IP blocks, preferably a memory block, for the comparison of development groups at Infineon.
  • Set up or take over Spice simulation (Spectre, XA or Titan).
  • Conduct Totem analyses.
  • Support the development of a method to compare the calculated voltage drop from analog simulation and Totem in order to get to a verification of the extraction capabilities of Totem.


You are best equipped for this task if you:
  • Are studying electrical engineering, micro- and nanotechnology or similar.
  • Have gained experience with analog electronics circuits and/or scripts like Shell or Perl.
  • Are interested in doing research, using state of the art verification methodologies and developing a script and a presentation to compare the results.
  • Bring along knowledge of developing and implementing automation scripts on a LINUX operating system.
  • Possess good knowledge in Perl, Python and Shell. Basic knowledge in tool command languages (tcl) are an advantage.
  • Could already gather first experiences with Spice Simulator and UNIX/LINUX.
  • Have a self-motivated and independent working style.
  • Are fluent in English. German language skills are a plus.

Please attach the following documents to your application:
  • Your CV in English;
  • Your certificate of enrollment at university;
  • Your latest study transcript;
  • Your high school report.
Additionally, the following requisites apply for student jobs:
  • You have to live somewhat close to the site: more than 150 kilometers is too far a travel for a student job.
  • You have to be enrolled in either your Bachelor or your Master studies to be eligible for a student job.
