Don't forget to mention FPGAjobs in your application. We are a small team, and these mentions are a huge help to us!

Are you passionate about setting new standards in physical implementation? This is a rare opportunity to become a part of the Cambridge CPU implementation team. The CPU group defines, designs and validates Arm's processor IP - the brains inside billions of electronic devices.


As a physical implementation engineer, you will join the successful team that has enabled huge volumes of next-generation high-efficiency processors, including the hugely successful Cortex-A53, the most recent Cortex-A510 through to the smallest and most energy-efficient Cortex-M0+ processors.


This role is to influence RTL development whilst innovating, developing and deploying the latest implementation techniques on live projects, including driving EDA vendors on advanced process nodes (eg. 3nm FinFET) whilst pushing the boundaries of power efficiency and influencing physical library development. You will provide the quality support that our customers desire and collaborate with them to develop the best products that help influence the world.


Our team is tightly coupled with the RTL design teams and this gives an outstanding opportunity to improve your knowledge of CPU microarchitecture. Your wide-ranging set of responsibilities will include:
