ATOM CPU Physical Design Engineer
Creates bottoms-up elements of chip design including but not limited to FET, cell, and block-level custom layouts, FUB-level floor plans, abstract view generation, RC extraction and schematic-to-layout verification and debug using phases of physical design development including parasitic extraction, static timing, wire load models, clock generation, customer polygon editing, auto-place and route algorithms, floor planning, full-chip assembly, packaging, and verification. Troubleshoots a wide variety up to and including difficult design issues and applied proactive intervention. Schedules, staffs, executes and verify complex chips development and execution of project methodologies and/or flow developments. Requires expansive knowledge and practical application of methodologies and physical design.
In this role, you will be a part of the Atom Layout Team (DDG-ATOM) in Penang and will drive physical implementation for a range of Atom CPU products. The work is performed with broadly defined parameters, and assignments are often complex and nonstandard in nature. Your responsibilities will include but not be limited to:
- Work closely with circuit design engineers to interpret schematics and drive physical implementation.
- Build and verify all levels of physical design hierarchy (leaf cell, IP block, FUB) using CAD tool, ICV/Hercules.
- Collaborate closely with other SoC projects at various sites across Intel.
- Behavioral traits for this position include:
o Adept problem solver with a disciplined approach to problem solving
o Ability to quickly adapt to changing conditions
o Initiative to continually expand your skill set
o Good (verbal and written) communication skills
o A team player willing to share knowledge
o A self-starter proactively seeking solutions
o Flexible and able to multi-task
