Job Description

Role and Responsibilities:

As a member of E-core CPU development team, you will have a front seat in designing the latest core IP to power cutting edge compute processors across client, server, IOTG and AI. We innovate state of the art microprocessor architecture on the most advanced and latest process technologies with a focus on power efficiency. Our core designs are present in nearly all segments of Intel's compute roadmap.

As a core IP Physical Design Engineer your responsibilities include:

  • Synthesis and Place and Route using industry standard tools for high speed CPU core design.
  • Perform all aspects of design flow from logic synthesis, place and route, FEV, power, timing, quality checks, and design closure.
  • Develop strategies to deliver reproducible design convergence results.
  • Help to create and refine synthesis flow for the project team.
  • Develop and recommend better design method practices to enable better synthesis convergence.

The ideal candidate will exhibit behavioral traits that demonstrate:

  • Willingness to work with others in a highly complex decision space.
  • Skills at developing an implementation plan monitoring key indicators and communicating resource needs and scoping risk to deliver value on schedule.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication and collaboration skills.

Experience in:

  • Experience with integrated circuit design tools (ex: Synopsys/Cadence), including logic synthesis, place and route, static timing analysis and design closure.
  • PV convergence (including static timing and power analysis).
  • Chip physical design verification including formal equivalence, timing, electrical rules, DRC/LVS, Noise and electro-migration checks.
  • Scripting in an interpreted language, minimum TCL in addition to at least one other (e.g. Perl, Python, Ruby).
  • Demonstrated success in one or more of the following areas: Synthesis of a digital logic block, which was integrated into a large SoC or IP.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Industry experience/exposure with CPU Micro-Architecture
  • Strong knowledge with Physical design best known practices concerning floor-planning, routing techniques, clock distribution
  • Strong knowledge of Static Timing Analysis, Noise analysis, and reliability verification techniques
  • Strong knowledge of RTL to GDS methodologies and formal equivalence
  • Familiar with Synopsys tool suite (Fusion compiler, ICC2, PrimeTime) or Cadence (Genus/Innovus)

Requirements listed would be obtained through a combination of industry relevant job experience, internship experiences and or schoolwork/classes/research.
