    I have a BS in Computer Engineering, and wish to become a "mixed-signal
    design engineer" or "system-on-chip (SoC) engineer."

    I have done some contract work for a semiconductor company,
    (digital/analog/logic programming, a good gig!), but nothing permanent as of
    yet.

    I have some specific questions:

    Is there such thing as a mixed-signal (SoC) design engineer? Or is this a
    description of a team of both analog and digital designers?

    Is there a way to prepare oneself, and put oneself on the market as an SoC
    design engineer, or should I just focus on digital or analog and then try to
    join a company that has SoC projects?

    Is an SoC design engineer just an engineering manager who manages a team of
    both digital and analog designers to make sure they can work together on the
    same chip?

    Should I just start designing filters in my spare time and then apply to ___
    Inc. just to get my foot in the door?

    Is it better to just start learning .NET programming and forget about EE
    design since I have little to no experience at all?


    thanks.
