Description: Need for an experienced and growth minded mission engineer. This engineer will assist in the top-level and block-level design of clock distribution trees for a non-traditional ASIC. This includes, planning, insertion, routing, timing verification, and DRC/LVS checking, of clock trees. Prior experience with both the Cadence Innovus Design suite, as well as GlobalFoundries / Avera Semi FX14 ASICs Dflow is required. The selected candidate will be required to work both independently and collaboratively. As such, the ability to be a hand-on person is critical, capable of running tools, while working effectively with others, while having the willingness and ability to learn new tool. Similarly, a strong understanding of the underlaying concepts is required to allow for early modeling techniques in the absence of fully developed designs or fully defined parameters. The ability to do analytical placement beyond what the tools can achieve is a requirement, for those critical elements of the clock tree. In doing so, intimate knowledge/use of scripting languages such as TCL and/or Python to facilitate such tasks is required.
Requirements: Job Duty 1 - Assisting in the design, development, and physical design integration of an ASIC and its associated components from a clock distribution standpoint. Job Duty 2 - A working knowledge of analyst tools to include: Innovus Place, Innovus CCopt, Innuvus Nanoroute. Job Duty 3 - Experience working on hierarchical designs both at the top-level, as well as macro (i.e. block) level. Job Duty 4 - Ability to optimize the design solution based on area, power, or timing, including timing closure, when needed, in order to meet required performance targets. Job Duty 5 - Interact with customers (when needed) through technical exchange meetings (TEMs), formal reviews at key program milestones, system demonstrations and briefings, while providing written documentation for the work performed. Basic Skills, clearances and other elements required, in order of importance, and number of years experience, where applicable, in each skill: 1) Refer to Job duties above (i.e. all tools necessary to do physical integration of a complex ASIC). 2) Other: Strong verbal and written communication skills required.
