Job Description

Job description


As a Physical design engineer, you will work as part of a IP working on significant deliverables for the team. This is a mid to senior level position where the candidate will be in an individual contributor role, tasked with driving synthesis, block and full chip implementation through sign-off with the latest industry P&R/STA flows and tools. Significant block level floor-planning, implementing and optimizing the design to meet aggressive performance/power and area targets will be critical for success. Key responsibilities include:

  • Hands-on responsibility from synthesis to place and route of a GPU block through signoff flows including timing and physical verification
  • Synthesis, Floor plan, Place & Route in chip-level and hierarchical physical implementation environment
  • Running MBIST and DFT insertion into block, understanding impact of MBIST/Scan and debug logic is desirable
  • Interact with RTL counterpart to resolve design issues pertaining to block closure
  • Optimize GPU block to meet aggressive power/performance/area targets

Job Requirements

Minimum requirements:

  • BSEE, Computer Engineer or comparable and 3 + years of experience
  • Solid understanding and working knowledge of the SOC/ASIC/GPU/CPU design flow with some experience in taping out designs
  • Hands-on experience with synthesis, block and full chip implementation with the latest industry P&R/STA flows and tools
  • Experience in block level floor-planning, implementing power grid and power/area/performance optimization
  • Strong scripting/programming skills in Tcl, Perl, Shell, and/or Python
  • Solid understanding of Electrical Engineering fundamentals, analytical aptitude and excellent attention to detail
  • Strong communication skills, team player working in collaborative work environment, discipline and planning; ability to execute with high quality deliverables is a must
