Physical Design Engineer Tabula
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED This opportunity has very high visibility into product-architecture and circuit-design; you will learn architecture details that circuit designers don?t know and circuit details that architects don?t know. Both ?breath? and ?depth? of this position are very high; this person contributes both at high level, dealing with architectural concepts and CAD methodologies - as well as low level, performing simple layout edits, running verification tools. The work involves many in-house developed tools and this person is both user and developer of these tools.
Successful Candidate Will?:
Work cross-functionally with circuit design, architecture and CAD teams to assemble Tabula?s programmable fabric tiles that make up the core of our chips. This involves building schematic, symbol and layout views that can readily be used for integration to chip level.
Work with architecture, CAD and layout teams to expand Tabula?s automated tile assembly flow; semi-auto-place custom components that make up various base tiles; optimize the use of an autorouter for which connectivity is driven by architecture files.
Work with architecture and CAD teams to integrate fabric-tiles into a full chip
Work with architecture team to insert buffers into fabric paths; optimize for performance and power. Develop automated simulation methodologies for predicting and extracting performance
Exposure to multiple disciplines.
ICV (Hercules) or Calibre LVS run & debug
Virtuoso schematic capture
Strong communication skills, must be able to bridge the gaps between circuit design, layout, architecture & software teams
CAD methodologies utilizing Skill, Perl, Tools
Must be self starter, motivated, proactive, be able to break down high level objectives into low level tasks
Autorouter experience, such as CSR
Spice, Spectre simulation experience
Electrical verification, such as EM/IR, SI, floating inputs, fanout
Understanding of repeater performance and insertion-strategies
5+ years relevant experience in custom physical design
BSEE or higher in a related field
If you are a self-starter who likes to explore ideas, you will not get bored in this position. This position is of key strategic importance to the company; it pulls together circuit blocks, layout pieces, architectural concepts and CAD tools and delivers a chip that can be taped out. The incumbent has the ability to heavily influence most matters that intersect architecture, circuit-design, CAD and layout-design disciplines.
