Senior hardware Engineer

East Bay, (none selected)

Post Date: 01/21/2016 Job ID: 6010 Industry: Consumer Electronics / Appliance

Our company is a privately held fabless semiconductor corporation based in
 California. We design high-performance, low-power FPGAs using Intel’s
22nm and 14nm 3-D Tri-Gate process technology.

Our company is currently shipping its 22nm HD1000 FPGA, making us the only customer of
Intel’s custom foundry program to ship product, as well as the FPGA industry’s processtechnology
leader.

The core technology team at our company owns the reconfigurable “fabric” (look-up tables,
routing, configuration memory, carry chains, register files, multipliers, etc.) for our
company’s FPGAs. Members of our team participate in all phases of the FPGA productdevelopment
cycle, from architecture conception to circuit design and implementation to
high-volume manufacturing.
New employees will have the opportunity to contribute to
all of these phases and work with the world’s most advanced process technology.

Position Profile Name: Senior Hardware Engineer
Type of Position: Regular, Exempt
Reports to: Vice President Hardware Engineering

Job Description and Responsibilities

The employee will work on the design, implementation, and characterization of fullcustom,
high-performance digital logic in 22nm and 14nm. The employee will work as a
design lead on multiple blocks in our FPGAs’ reconfigurable logic fabric. His or her
responsibilities will include the following:

? Own the design of several full-custom and RTL-based digital logic blocks
? Collaborate with other members of the team to optimize our physical design and
verification methodologies to scale to a chip with over 10 billion transistors
? Estimate the power, performance, and area of the custom and RTL blocks both
before and after physical implementation
? Work closely with Intel foundry employees working on process development,
customer support, EDA, reliability, test, and qualification on the first customer
tapeouts in 22nm and 14nm
? Develop automated processes for block-level and system-level verification
? Mentor junior engineers
Skills and Qualifications:
? Employee should be comfortable programming in a scripting language (e.g.,
Python or Perl) and writing programs with 5,000 – 20,000 lines of code.
? Employee should have experience with digital VLSI design
? Employee should be comfortable reading and writing RTL (e.g., Verilog)
? Employee should be extremely well organized and have excellent communication
skills
? Employee should be experienced with commerical CAD flows (LVS, DRC,
simulation, etc.)

? Experience developing digital logic in current process nodes (28nm, 22nm,
20nm) is a plus
? Familiarity with object-oriented programming concepts is a plus
? Familiarity with revision-control systems (e.g., perforce, git) is a plus
? BS/MS/PhD in electrical engineering or computer science + 5-10 years
