Role Number: 200005479
As part of our Digital Design Engineering group, you’ll take imaginative and revolutionary ideas and determine how to turn them into reality. You and your team will apply engineering fundamentals and start from scratch if needed, bringing forward-thinking ideas to the real world. Your efforts will be groundbreaking, often literally. Join us, and you’ll help design the tools that allow us to bring customers experiences they’ve never before envisioned. You will be part of an exciting silicon design group that is responsible for designing state-of-the-art ASICs. We have an extraordinary opportunity for Power UPF Engineers. The SoC hardware development team is looking for a Power UPF methodology engineer who will drive transistor level power ERC sign-off and power intent-UPF implementation & verification on mobile SOCs.

Key Qualifications

  • We are looking for applicants with experience in ASIC design methodology and an emphasis on power definition.
  • Experience in ASIC design flows and custom IP design flows.
  • Familiar with basic circuit & layout fundamentals.
  • Familiar with Caliber based ERC flows.
  • Familiar with power intent definition, implementation and verification flows.
  • Knowledge of scripting languages like, Tcl, Perl and Python.
  • Familiar with of power analysis and optimization methods.
  • Familiar with entire RTL2GDS flow (RTL sim (VCS), equivalence, synthesis, P&R, intent checking)
  • Strong communication skills are a pre-requisite as you will collaborate with a lot of different groups.
  • NCG or Experienced.

Description

Imagine yourself at the center of our SOC design effort, collaborating with all disciplines, playing a strategic role of getting functional products to millions of customers quickly. You will have the opportunity to integrate and come-up with new ideas, as well as work with a team of hardworking engineers. The main responsibility of this role is to develop and support transistor level power ERC sign-off for digital and mixed signal designs, drive power ERC sign-off at full-chip level, drive UPF implementation and verification for mobile SOCs and make current power sign-off flow more robust and expand power sign-off methodology for next generation mobile products, including: • Drive Mixed signal IP power ERC and power intent verification. • Drive coverage of power intent across static and dynamic checking methodologies. • Define and develop power ERC framework for new projects. • Bring up power intent checking flows on new projects. • Drive power intent & power ERC sign-off for tape-out. • Liaison with CAD and physical design verification team for debugging any power ERC and power intent flow issues.

Education & Experience

BSEE/MSEE or Computer Science required.
