Job Responsibilities


The Edge SoC Silicon R&D team is looking for a hands-on, team oriented engineer with SoC/ASIC implementation expertise. In this individual contributor role, candidate will have complete ownership of SoC/ASIC STA (subsystem or full chip level) from RTL to timing closure. Candidate should have hands-on knowledge of Synthesis, Formal Verification, Static Timing Analysis, Low Power methologies and DFT at Physical partition or full chip level of SoC/ASIC. Candidate should have strong ability to learn and explore new technologies. Candidate is desired to have expertise in SoC/ASIC CAD tool (SoC/ASIC implementation) flow development and ability to demonstrate good analysis and problem-solving skills. Candidate is desired to have an extraordinarily creative and motivated  approach towards complex design problems. Candidate must be highly organized, able to prioritize, and juggle multiple work streams towards tight deadlines.



  • 5+years of SoC/ASIC implementation cycle with good working understanding/experience/knowledge of following is must:
    • Study of Functional Specification/Requirement documents, Standard documents to extract key information required for ASIC/SoC implementation flows
    • SoC/ASIC Physical-partition/full-chip floorplan experience
    • Clock, Reset Structures/Schemes
    • Synthesis/STA Constraint modelling/validation
    • Clock-Structure analysis, Reset-Structure analysis
    • Synthesis/STA Constraint modelling/validation
    • Logic Synthesis (using Design-Compiler or equivalent industry tools)
    • Formal Verification (using Formality, Conformal or equivalent industry tools)
    • CDC (using Spyglass or equivalent industry tools)
    • Static Timing Analysis (using Primetime or Encounter Timing System)
    • Power Analysis (Primepower or equivalent industry tools)
    • Interaction/co-ordination with different cross-functional (digital-design/analog-design/physical-design/verification) teams across different world geographies
    • ASIC tool flow environment setup: Spyglass-lint/CDC, Design Compiler(T), Formality, PrimeTime, PrimePower
    • DFT Techniques/Structures
    • Scripting: Perl, Tcl, Shell languages
