Job Description

About the job:

In your role as a Logic Design Engineer, you will be responsible for designing logic test-chips for the next generation of silicon technology as well as supporting studies related to performance, gate count and power (PPA) for various SoC designs. You will be required to use your logic design expertise to create new designs, write detailed design specifications and create test plans in close collaboration with architects, your fellow circuit designers and verification engineers.

You'll be responsible for overseeing the definition, design, verification, and documentation for a variety of SoCs currently in development. In addition to performing logic design and oversight, you will be expected to assume one or more of the following responsibilities:

  • Provide high-quality descriptions of RTL, including SVAs for the design.
  • Use formal verification tools and static checkers to guarantee the necessary quality of the RTL.
  • Support the functional design verification team to ensure successful tape-in and success in first-pass silicon.
  • Drive functional and code coverage, timing closure, bring-up and performance and power characterization.
  • Define module interfaces, formats or specifications for simulation.
  • Integrate cell libraries, functional units or subsystems into complete SoC designs.
  • Participate in all aspects of the SoC design flow and the way from high-level architectural definition design to implementation.
