Why Work at Analog Garage?

Small Teams, Fast Results

No 100-member teams with years-long timelines here—our teams are small, work quickly, and give everyone a key role.

Gain Experience in Multiple Fields

You’ll work directly with senior people in your field, as well as experts in other fields, gaining skills in a wide range of disciplines.

Become a Leader Sooner

You won’t wait years to move up at the Garage: Show your potential and we’ll give you a chance to lead a project.

Innovators Wanted

ADI’s product development increasingly revolves around software, including machine learning algorithms and other artificial intelligence technologies. Integrating more advanced software within our devices can make them more valuable and easier for customers to use. Our products “sense, measure, interpret, power, connect,” and software is an increasingly important element to do all of those things.

icon-algorithmic-systems-group

The Algorithmic Systems Group within Analog Garage creates advanced algorithms in the fields of signal processing, machine learning, computer vision, artificial intelligence, communication systems, and other areas of electrical engineering and computer science, and implements those algorithms in practical and efficient hardware.

icon-software-engineering-group

The Software Engineering Group, working with researchers, algorithm developers, and hardware engineers, uses lean approaches and modern technologies to develop software that spans the gamut from custom processors and embedded firmware to the cloud, web, and mobile.

icon-security-group

The Systems Engineering Group takes new concepts and breakthrough sensor technologies and builds the complete physical systems (Mechanical, Electrical, Software) we deliver into our customers' hands.

icon-venture-team

The Analog Garage Venture Team members work closely with start-ups, incubators, and universities to collaborate on developing breakthrough technology that creates value for ADI and for our partners. We provide entrepreneurs with a path to propose, explore, and scale new technologies and new business models.


Other groups within Analog Garage include an Analog Circuits Group, an Autonomous Vehicle Group, an Internet of Things Group, and a group that focuses on consumer products.

Research Areas

The Analog Garage covers a wide spectrum of research areas. You can have an impact right away, developing these disruptive technologies that make life better, when you work at the Garage.


Research Areas

See LIDAR Research in Action

Conventional detection and signal chain problems can often be greatly improved by utilizing constraints and ideas that come from outside of the system we are designing. The firefly process describes a boundary on how objects can move—that is, it details the constraints, not on the detector or signal chain, but on the object they are measuring.

Applied Research Areas

ADI’s analog, mixed-signal, and digital signal processing integrated circuits play a fundamental role in converting, conditioning, and processing real-world phenomena such as light, sound, temperature, motion, and pressure into electrical signals to be used in a wide array of technology solutions.

Analog Garage Success Stories

Cesium

Cesium

CesiumAstro is developing a plug-and-play, software-defined active phased array system for space and airborne communication, and ADI is partnering with Cesium for tight technical and go-to-market collaboration. Cesium’s technology is particularly attractive for low earth orbit satellite communication as well as in-flight connectivity, UAVs, and numerous defense applications.

Pinpoint

Pinpoint

Recent events surrounding the threat posed by the COVID-19 global pandemic highlight the urgent need for better methods for front-line mass screening to contain the spread of microbial pathogens. One pioneering biotech company envisioned a breakthrough concept using portable nanosensor technology diagnostics to pinpoint pathogens in under one minute. But to commercialize its patented technology, it needed a strategic partner like the Analog Garage and ADI’s Hillview fab process engineering team.

OtoSense

OtoSense

OtoSense was an AI startup focused on environmental sound recognition, and the technology enables the identification of various events and detection of anomalies on machine sounds or vibrations. OtoSense has added differentiated software, analytics, and machine learning capabilities to our hardware offerings in Condition-based Monitoring (CbM) and other applications across multiple markets.

ToF

ADI’s Time of Flight Camera

ADI’s high resolution depth mapping over existing 3D technology enables consumers to more accurately map themselves and their environment for a better user experience. When the ToF team was faced with the challenge of operating multiple ToF cameras together, the marketing and applications team turned to Analog Garage.
