Engineer IV - Sr. ASIC Physical Design & CAD Support Engineer
EDUCATION DESIRED: BS or MS., Electrical Engineering
ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS: Lead integration, verification, design trade-offs, and carry out layout on critical performance elements. Implementation of GDSII custom IC layout for mixed signal ASICs comprised of digital netlists, large analog circuit macros, and custom foundry components. The digital netlist to GDSII implementations will follow traditional CAD based back-end flow such as floor-planning, P&R, synthesis, formal verification, clock tree insertion, and timing closure. Ability to perform top level ASIC assembly with mixed signal components, performing power analysis, load and decoupling analysis for analog references, mixed signal clocking nets, as well as ensuring successful ground plane crossings. Interface with front end designers to assist them with customizing cad flows, Physical Design Verification methodology, and debugging LVS/DRC issues at all levels of hierarchy. This role requires a fundamental understanding of circuits and mixed signal design as well as proficiency in scripting, back end digital flows, CAD tools, and foundry PDK formats. In-depth knowledge in CAD/EDA tools to support team of engineers on their daily CAD issues. Install and maintain and troubleshoot PDK environments for semiconductor foundries. In addition to executing the above tasks the role is primarily for someone who can build and customize robust back-end flows, capturing the needs of both digital and analog circuit implementation and verification.
EXPERIENCE DESIRED: At least 6 years as lead engineer with demonstrable experience in:
ESSENTIAL PHYSICAL/MENTAL REQUIREMENTS: Proficiency in use of computers, engineering work stations, complex electronic equipment, oral and written communication, interaction with vendors/colleagues and willingness to work in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment. Ability to work well in a team and independently.
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS (e.g. driver’s license, special tools or restrictions): U.S. citizenship is required. Must be able to obtain and maintain a security clearance. Active SSBI is a plus.
