We are Boeing Research & Technology (BR&T): Boeing's global research and development team creating and implementing innovative technologies that make the impossible possible and enabling the future of aerospace. We are engineers and technicians, skilled scientists and bold innovators; Join us and put your passion, determination, and skill to work building the future! #TheFutureIsBuiltHere #ChangeTheWorld
Within BR&T, Boeings Solid State Electronics Development organization (SSED) performs microelectronics technology development and design for aerospace systems. We develop digital, analog, and RF Systems on Chip (SoCs) for radar, navigation, electronic warfare, communications, processing, quantum computing and other electronic systems. These systems are used on Boeing airborne, terrestrial, and satellite platforms. Designs are implemented with state of the art semiconductor process technologies including CMOS, GaAs, GaN, and SiGe. SSED uses external wafer fabrication but performs design (architecture, RTL, synthesis, circuits, physical design, verification, packaging and test) in house. SSED has numerous microelectronics projects, funded both by internal Boeing customers and external Government Science and Technology (S&T) customers. SSEDs large staff of microelectronics engineers conduct research and designs microelectronics hardware in support of these projects.
We are seeking experienced semiconductor device modeling engineers who are able to model CMOS transistor and other device behavior in extreme environments (e.g. cryogenic, extreme heat, and high radiation) in advanced semiconductor fabrication nodes (?32nm). Responsibilities include: adapting foundry-provided models for extreme environments based on experimental data and theoretical understanding of DC to multi-GHz AC behavior; creating new models based on measurement data; defining test structures and measurements needed to provide data to validate and calibrate models; predicting and explaining behavior of high-speed digital, analog/mixed-signal, and RF circuits using the developed device models.
