Design Automation and Computer Aided Design (CAD) Engineering Overview

Intel design automation engineers develop new design techniques and improve the performance of Intel's next-generation platforms, while our CAD engineers perform circuit simulation, performance verification, resistance-capacitance (RC) extraction, design database management, design rule checking (DRC), and layout versus schematic (LVS) using a variety of tools.

What You'll Do

These key engineering team members design, develop, maintain, and provide user support of CAD tools, assist with schematic entry and analysis in the integrated circuit design process, and create and implement computer-controlled automatic test systems. In all of these tasks, their core objectives are simple-to improve quality and reduce costs. And, with Intel's senior positions, you'll combine engineering and manufacturing work with management responsibilities.


What we make possible

What We Make Possible

Intel® X99 Chipset

This platform is equipped with features that maximize the capabilities and performance of the gaming, overclocking, and digital content creation communities.


What You'll Bring

Successful design automation and CAD engineers at Intel typically have bachelor's or advanced degrees in electrical engineering, computing engineering, or computer science. We look for individuals with strong backgrounds in logic design, working experience in synthesis, Formal Verification (FV), Design for Test (DFT), Static Timing Analysis (STA), Auto Place and Route (APR), and Physical Verification, as well as working knowledge of UNIX*, Windows*, Perl*, VHDL and/or Verilog*, and C/C++, Tool Control Language (TCL), or Tool Kit (TK).


A Job Like Mine

"The coolest part about working at Intel is walking into an electronics store and seeing people playing with and being amazed with a product which you helped create, while knowing that what you're currently working on makes that device seem like a kid's toy." - Konstantin, CPU Cluster Validation Engineer, Austin, TX, USA
