Introduction to the job

ASML US, including its affiliates and subsidiaries, bring together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler, Arizona, San Jose and San Diego, California, Wilton, Connecticut, and Hillsboro, Oregon.

Role and responsibilities

The mission of Sr. Electrical Engineer is to design digital/mixed signal circuits based on subsystem requirements. Work with sub-system architects to derive design and test specifications for specific analog modules. Conduct module prototyping, debug, and full function bench test. Support module level, sub-system level, and system level integration.
This position may require access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require the Company to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology

Developand design image scan and pre-processing systems, including wide bandwidthamplifiers, high speed A/D, D/A, and filters.
Developand design high density FPGA based circuits based on system specifications
Circuitsthermal and simulation design, including hardware simulation and HDL codesimulation.
Highspeed data acquisition and distribution design.
Workwith sub-system architect, derive design and test specifications forspecific digital/mixed signal module

Conductschematic capture, circuit simulation, PCB layout
Conductmodule prototyping, debug, and full function bench test
Supportmodule level, sub-system level, and system level integration in the lab orcleanroom

Education and experience

Bachelors with 8+ years hands-on experience, Masters with 5+ years hands-on experiences, or Ph.D. with 3+ years of hands-on experiences in electrical engineering or relevant fields.

Minimum qualifications
1+ years FPGA based circuits design experience
1+ years high speed signal circuits design experience
3+ years digital relevant circuits design experience
Strong English communication skills
Good team work


Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way do that. You won’t work in a silo. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view. You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.
To thrive in this job, you’ll need the following skills:

Experience with capital equipment in semiconductor industry is preferred.
High precision signal system design includes analog front-end circuits, low-noise amplifiers, high speed A/D and D/A, op-amp, wide bandwidth amplifiers, passive and active filters。
High speed digital circuits design including LVDS, DDR, PCIe, USB, Ethernet, and fiber communication, which are based on MCU, DSP, and FPGA.
High frequency or high speed circuits design and experience, including signal integrity and power integrity, transmission line, noise analysis, high-speed circuit layout, high-density BGA, and EMC analysis.
Experience in image scan and pre-processing systems and supporting sub-system level and system level integration.
Experience of schematic capture, circuit simulation, PCB layout and providing detailed layout guidance.
Experience in a lab environment using oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, network analyzer, signal/function generator.
Experience of prototyping, conceptual design, feasibility analysis, components selection, hardware bring-up, debugging, and full function bench test.
