Analog design engineers design, develop, and maintain analog electronic circuitry systems. They will often work closely with R&D (research and development) to collaborate on innovative approaches to electronics system design. These specialists perform measurements and testing to ensure the achieved performance meets target specifications. They plan and oversee all stages of product development and design, and also are often responsible for troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair.
Analog design engineers would typically have at least a master’s degree in electrical engineering, although many employers prefer candidates with a PhD in that area, often coupled with several years of professional experience involving hands-on experience with analog design tools. Expertise with analog building blocks, logic design skills, familiarity with system and behavioral modeling, or other specialized training and expertise are all advantages.
