Intel Programmable Solutions Group (PSG) is looking for a SoC/Solution Micro-Architect for Structured ASIC products. This forward-looking dynamic role provides unique opportunities to influence future product roadmap, requiring a self-starter with strong personal communication and collaboration skills. As a SoC/Solution Micro-Architect, you will be responsible to work on feasibility of customer feature requests, partitioning them effectively between hardware/software and propose an effective implementation which meets the desired Power, Performance and Area targets.
You will need to work with cross functional teams and will be responsible for defining Micro-architecture specifications for the Structured ASIC solutions. You will also work closely with IP and platform implementation teams on the creation of Soft IP blocks, solutions and customer designs to enable those capabilities.
As a SoC Micro-Architect you will be responsible, but not limited to:
- Responsible for SoC Frontend Architecture and Design. Define micro-architecture specifications.
- Perform feasibility study on different third-party IP and integrate IP at the SOC level.
- Closely work with Verification team and help define testplan, run tests and debug design.
- Lead the performance model definition and development.
- Participate in design reviews of hardware and related software systems.
- Run Lint, CDC, Synthesis, STA and formal verification tools, work closely with Backend team on floorplan, Constraints definition and timing analysis.
- Participate and drive timing convergence for high speed designs including micro-architecture optimizations
- Collaborate with internal and external team members on architectural decisions, development flows and methodologies.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate:
- Experience with IA or CPU based SoC designs processor based SoC architectures.
- Experience with NoC design and integration with interconnect protocols, such as AXI, ACE, APB, etc.
- Expertise in Ethernet, PCIe, TSN will be a plus.
- Expert RTL developer using ASIC development techniques and designs flows at modern technology nodes including synthesis and timing closure.
- Strong knowledge of digital design involving multiple clock domains and clock power management.
- Experience of low power design, tools and methodologies. Power intent UPF specifications knowledge a plus.
- Excellent communication and documentation skill. Must be able to influence in heavily matrixed environment.
- Ability to operate in ambiguity where roles may not be clearly defined or teams across multiple/functions and IP/SOC must be pulled together.
You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.
The candidate must have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or related field.
