Job Description:

Do you have a passion for crafting entirely new solutions? As part of our Digital group, you'll take imaginative and revolutionary ideas and determine how to turn them into reality! You and your team will apply engineering fundamentals and start from scratch if needed, bringing forward-thinking ideas to the real world. Your efforts will be groundbreaking, often literally. Join us, and you'll help design the tools that allow us to bring customers experiences they've never-before envisioned! You will be part of an exciting silicon design group that is responsible for designing pioneering ASICs. We have an extraordinary opportunity for Circuits Engineers to design advanced custom digital megacells (SRAM memories, on-chip sensors, ML accelerators data path) used in a high performance / low power SOC. Key Qualifications

  • Experience in one or multiple of the following areas is highly desirable: Machine learning accelerators, non-volatile memory circuits, memory subsystems, 3D integration / new packaging technologies, advanced device technologies, design /technology co-optimization (DTCO).
  • Deep understanding of deep submicron device physics, leakage mechanisms, technology interactions with device behavior for logic, SRAM and NVM memories.
  • Ability to conduct experiments during silicon debug, gathering and analyzing data; and use scripting to support efficient handling of ATE data.
  • Familiar with mixed signal verification and behavioral models for mixed signal blocks.
  • Familiar with digital flow from RTL to GDS.
  • Proficiency in scripting languages (Python /Perl or others) and CAD automation tools.
  • Knowledge of industry standard circuit and design tools.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills. Ability to propose and get buy-in new initiatives and communicate effectively with internal / external teams.
