AMS STA / Timing Engineer (f/m/d)

Munich, Bavaria-Bayern, Germany


Role Number:200257774
Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, new ideas have a way of becoming extraordinary products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. We bring passion and dedication to our job and there's no telling what we could accomplish. Smart people and inspiring, innovative technologies are the norm here. Do you love working on challenges that no one has solved yet? Are you ready to be part of a team transforming technology? Join us to help deliver the next groundbreaking Apple product. In this role, you will be a key member of our team in Munich, acting as backend focal point for all timing and constraints development, working in advanced technologies and directly collaborating closely both with RTL designers and Physical Designers, towards completion of Analog Mixed Signal IPs.


As a Static Timing Engineer, you will be spanning all aspects of SoC design in terms of timing. Key responsibilities include timing sign-off, STA and sign-off flow development, ownership of full chip, IP, and block level timing constraints both for regular and custom timing requirements from synthesis to sign-off to achieve sign-off quality timing constraints. You will also closely collaborate with RTL designers to understand design intent and clock structure, with CAD to understand and develop flow, and with Physical Design team to close and sign-off timing. You will come up with ideas and plans to verify your own timing constraints, innovate timing constraints and flow to facilitate timing closure and any potential pessimism or fallouts in timing analysis.

Minimum Qualifications
