Principal Engineer - Synthesis & STA
Develop and implement high-performance, low-power, and area-efficient digital designs for ASICs and SoCs using industry-standard EDA tools.
In your new role you will:
- Develop and implement high-performance, low-power, and area-efficient digital designs for ASICs and SoCs using industry-standard EDA tools.
- Work closely with design teams to understand the requirements and constraints of the design, and provide feedback on design feasibility,timing and power.
- Write and implement block level and top-level constraints for synthesis,perform timing closure and power analysis.
- Develop and implement synthesis flows and methodologies, and driveimprovements in the design process.
- Debug and resolve design issues related to synthesis, timing, power, andarea.
- Understanding of DFT flows, including scan insertion and ATPG.
- Optimize designs for power, performance, and area, and meet design goals within the given schedule.
- Implement pipelining at different levels for performance optimization and timing closure.
- Perform power analysis and optimize designs for low power.
- Have experience in mentoring junior engineers.
- Proficient with EDA tools from Synopsys/Cadence/Mentor.
- Excellent analytical &communication skills.
- Shown ability to collaborate in a multi-functional environment, cross-site or cross-time zone. Proficient in Tcl and Perl or other scripting relevant language is a plus.
