Oversees definition, design, verification, and documentation for SoC (System on a Chip) development. Determines architecture design, logic design, and system simulation. Defines module interfaces/formats for simulation. Performs Logic design for integration of cell libraries, functional units and subsystems into SoC full chip designs, Register Transfer Level coding, and simulation for SoCs. Contributes to the development of multidimensional designs involving the layout of complex integrated circuits. Performs all aspects of the SoC design flow from highlevel design to synthesis, place and route, timing and power to create a design database that is ready for manufacturing. Analyzes equipment to establish operation infrastructure, conducts experimental tests, and evaluates results. May also review vendor capability to support development.
As a CPU Synthesis 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:
Willingness to work with others in a highly complex decision space
Skilled at developing an implementation plan, monitoring key indicators, communicating resource-needs, and scoping risk to deliver value on schedule
Excellent verbal and written communication and collaboration skills
