Job Details

Company:Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Job Area:Engineering Group, Engineering Group > CPU Engineering

General Summary:

We are hiring talented engineers for CPU RTL Power targeted for high performance, low power devices. In this role, you will be responsible for all key aspects of CPU power modeling and analysis, and RTL power estimation and optimization of high-performance energy efficient CPU designs.

Minimum Qualifications:
Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related field and 4+ years of Hardware Engineering, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering, or related work experience.
OR
Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related field and 3+ years of Hardware Engineering, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering, or related work experience.
OR
PhD in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related field and 2+ years of Hardware Engineering, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering, or related work experience.

Required qualifications

BS degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering with 3 - 8 years of CPU RTL power modeling and estimation experience.

Deep understanding of CPU or ASIC low power design including expertise in active and Idle power optimization, RTL clock gating techniques, CPU power modeling and analysis for power/performance tradeoffs and battery life projections

Working knowledge of Verilog and/or VHDL with hands-on experience in low-power simulation tools such as PowerArtist and PTPX.

Knowledge of logic design principles along with power and timing implications.

Preferred qualifications

MS degree in Computer or Electrical Engineering with at least 3 years of practical experience

Very good understanding of low power minimization techniques

Experience using a scripting language such as Perl or Python

Strong problem solving, organizational and communication skills, and ability to work in a fast-paced and dynamic environment

Roles and Responsibilities

As an RTL Power engineer you will own and/or participate in the following tasks:

Estimate/analyze RTL power for CPU modules (using PowerArtist or equivalent tool) and optimize power at various stages of the design to meet targets working with architecture, RTL, verification and physical design teams

Create comprehensive CPU power models, identify early power targets and achieve correlation with physical design, and analyze power/performance/area tradeoffs

Build scripts (using Python/Perl) to automate power estimation/analysis flow and create algorithms to analyze complex HW throttling mechanisms to achieve peak CPU performance within EDP, TDP and peak current limits.
