🚀 Summer Internship


AI generated summary

  • You need a BS/MS in EE, coursework in digital design and Verilog, scripting skills, and experience with FPGA synthesis and IC design taping out. Proficient in test equipment.
  • You will design FPGA hardware for RFID tag testing, collaborate with cross-functional team, automate test capabilities, and participate in IC design. Exciting, hands-on work at Impinj!

Summer Internship



  • As an intern in the Silicon Engineering Organization, you will have the opportunity to work with many silicon engineers on the endpoint IC product (tag). This passive electronic is responsible for responding to commands from Gen2 RFID readers using only RF modulation. You will work with digital designers, analog designers, test engineers, and systems engineers. Your project on augmenting silicon emulation prototyping for next generation silicon endpoint ICs will directly enable faster development of Gen2 extensions (Gen2+), help assist reader firmware development and improve silicon verification. This is a 3-month internship starting in June.


  • Current BS or MS Electrical Engineering Candidate
  • 1-3 years of relevant coursework experience
  • Course work in digital design
  • Course work in RTL design of digital blocks (Verilog preferred)
  • Course work or experience with synthesizing RTL for FPGAs
  • Proficiency in a scripting language Perl, Ruby or Python
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Coursework or experience digital logic synthesis, place and route, timing analysis.
  • Experience with taping out an integrated circuit design in academia or industry.
  • Proficiency using standard test and measurement equipment including spectrum analyzers, power meters, logic analyzers, and oscilloscopes.
