Physical Design Engineer

Location: San Diego, California
Date Posted: 02-13-2018
Job Overview:
Candidate will assist with Floor planning, P&R, timing closure SI prevention/fixing, power planning, CTS, PV and I/R drop for Block, as well as Top level MSM. Also be able to work On PD projects.

Qualifications:
Able to deal with MSM Top level complexity from FP, Placement, CTS, Routing and timing closure. Must be able to take the Hardmacro through P&R from Netlist to GDS, including timing closure, formal and Physical verification.

Tools: EDA Physical design tools experience ( Examples: Cadence Innovas, Synopsys ICC2, PrimetimeSi/Calibre/ etc)
Skills: Physical design implementation expertize in latest technology nodes in one of the below domains or all of these.
  • Floorplanning at Full chip level or Macro or Block Level
  • Macro placement, power grid implementation, power routing, special routing like analog signals etc. 
  • Power collapse/Low power implementation flow.
  • P&R: Place and route at chip level or block level, perform placement, timing closure in P&R mode, perform clock tree synthesis, routing etc.
  • Timing closure/STA Perform STA using primetimeSi or Tempus or any industry standard STA engine, timing closure, ECO generation, timing correlation.
  • Deep understanding of timing skills to perform correlation, timing fixes, corner/voltage definitions etc.
  • Clock Tree Synthesis: Perform custom or regular clock tree implementation at block level or top level. Clock tree balance of complicated tree, clock power reduction techniques etc. Low Power Implementation Power collapse/power gaining techniques/implementation. UPF/CPF flow knowledge. CLP/FV.
  • Physical Verification Using Calibre. Running all the PV checks (DRc/LVS/ERC/Softcheck ) and deep understanding of all the rules and fixes Perl/Python/Shell script experience is also preferred to help with automation.
