Global Circuit Design Staff Engineer

Qualified candidate will be responsible for the physical design and the development global clock, power and related circuits for ASIC chips. In addition to design, candidate must be able to develop methodologies, write flows, evaluate and set acceptance criteria for IP and ECAD tools related to 45nm/28nm nodes and beyond.

Candidate must have a good knowledge of physical design reference flows as well the circuit design methodologies incorporating the latest low skew and power savings techniques. Candidate must be familiar with using foundry supplied spice models and IP and be able to develop new circuits and methodologies as both an individual contributor and technical lead.

Candidate must exhibit excellent communication skills since close interaction with the internal physical design team members as well as external vendors, foundries and IP providers is required.


Evaluate various new foundry process technologies for use in clock, power and repeater networks
Manage and track issues related to foundry processes, IP design and ECAD tool usage
Interact with foundries, internal system, timing and CAD teams to spec environmental, process and simulation parameters
Spec and design clock, power and repeater circuits, flows and networks from rtl to gds using the latest low skew and power savings techniques
Verify power network and signal EM integrity using various ECAD programs such as Apache-DA Redhawk program or similar
Simulate and document circuit sensitivity with respect to process and environmental variations
Provide guidance to others as either an individual contributor or technical lead


MSEE with 8 years minimum experience in all aspects of chip design with emphasis in global clock, power and repeater circuit design
Previous circuit design experience in either 45nm or 28nm CMOS technologies
Understanding of various IP components such as PLLs, std cells, srams and IO at the circuit level
Previous experience in managing various foundry and IP vendors
Previous experience with all physical design tools from rtl to gds with emphasis on spice, timing and verification tools
Experience with extraction, signal integrity, DRC/DFM and LVS programs
Ability to use Unix shell, Perl, TCL and make scripts to generate flows and optimize design simulations
Some analog or mixed signal circuit design experience is a plus

We offer very market competitive benefits i.e. Base, Bonus, Equity, 401k, ESPP, Medical, Dental, Vision, Life, FSA, PTO (15 days accrual 1st yr), 12 Paid Holidays, EAP, Credit Union, Child/Elderly Care, Tuition Reimbursement, and Green commute incentives.
