Position : ASIC Design Engg

The responsibilities of this role include:

  • Working independently with little supervision.
  • Making decisions that are moderate in impact; Errors may have relatively minor financial impact or effect on projects, operations, or customer relationships; Errors may require involvement beyond immediate work group to correct.
  • Using verbal and written communication skills to convey information that may be somewhat complex to others who may have limited knowledge of the subject in question. May require basic negotiation and influence, cooperation, tact, and diplomacy, etc.
  • Having a moderate amount of influence over key organizational decisions (e.g., is consulted by senior leadership to provide input on key decisions).
  • Completing tasks with multiple steps that can be performed in various orders; some planning and prioritization must occur to complete the tasks effectively; mistakes may result in some rework.
  • Exercising creativity to draft original documents, imagery, or work products within established guidelines.
  • Using deductive and inductive problem solving; multiple approaches may be taken/necessary to solve the problem; often information is missing or incomplete; intermediate data analysis/interpretation skills may be required.
  • May be solicited during strategic planning period. The responsibilities of this role do not include:
  • Financial accountability (e.g., does not involve budgeting responsibility). PRINCIPAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
  • Uses tools/applications (i.e., Cadence, RTL Compiler, etc.) to execute the architecture and design of multiple blocks according to design protocol provided.
  • Participates in developing an implementation strategy that meets system requirements and customer needs, occasionally relying on help from manager.
  • Resolves architecture, design, or verification problems by applying sound ASIC engineering practices and provides assistance to more junior engineers.
  • Owns the design and verification strategies of ASICs, SoC, and IP cores of a single block or IC Package.
  • Reviews tests and regressions from more junior team members and completes own tests to ensure that bugs are fully understood and analyzed.
  • Runs power checks on multiple blocks to ensure they meet specifications provided by team lead.
  • Interprets the results of complex performance checks and reports them to team lead.
  • Furthers the innovation of ASICs, SoC, IP cores, and/or transistor level integrated circuits by staying up to date on technical literature and technological advances.
  • Writes, reviews, and edits technical document in accordance with template requirements.
  • Communicates directly with key team members on any significant deviations from the Plan of Record for assigned work, re directs resources as necessary and guides the work of more junior team members.
  • Participates in and contributes significantly to design or project reviews and project meetings.
  • Acts as a tech lead on small- to mid-sized projects.
  • Defines processes to facilitate an effective work-flow within the team and continually evaluates processes for possible improvement. Additional responsibilities might include:
  • Coordinates design and implementation of test keys according to technology requirements.
  • Uses modeling/simulation/layout tools to debug issues and execute on development of competitive process technology modules.
  • Develops and maintains databases for technology data mining and analysis, and helps larger team to draw conclusions on issues. REQUIRED COMPETENCIES: (All competencies below are required upon entry)
