Semiconductor Research Engineer - Components Research Exploratory Memory and Analog Circuit Design
Intel's Technology Development Component Research (TD CR) delivers innovative semiconductor and packaging technologies research and development. The group focuses on unique, enabling capabilities across all aspects of Intel's semiconductor processing and packaging roadmap. Components Research engineers are responsible for leading programs to design, fabricate and analyze novel devices/interconnects/patterning, materials, and integration schemes across a wide variety of novel applications.
The semiconductor research engineer will work together with a team of researchers on the implementation of exploratory devices and integrated circuits for logic, memory, and novel computing paradigms e.g Compute-In-Memory for AI.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to.
- 1. Emerging Memory Circuit design
- 2. CMOS analog circuit design
- 3. CMOS/non-CMOS based digital circuit/subsystem/full chip design via logic, design/RTL/simulation/placement-and-routing/timing/power (all aspects of SoC design flow).
- 4. work with functional verification.
- 5. work with physical design team to meet timing, area, and power targets.
- 6. work on lab tests of circuits etc.
The main direction of the project will be exploratory circuits for emerging memory. The project will utilize and enhance the skills and capabilities in scientific analysis, problem solving, synthesis of simulation and experimental data, effective communication, and collaboration within the team.
