Position Title: Senior/Staff Physical Design Engineer (14nm FinFET, Cadence Innovus)

Status: Full-time Employee (W2)
Work location: Raleigh, NC
Full Benefits:


As Physical Design Engineer, will work on a small team to assist in the physical integration of a large chip using 14nm FinFET ASIC flow.  The scope of the work will include various aspects of the chip integration flow: image design, IO planning, circuit placement, clock insertion, signal routing (power + signal), checking (DRC+LVS), at the RLM (unit level) but with focus on the Top-Level.

Required Skills:

• Strong experience working with Cadence tools, and more specifically Innovus flow (formerly Encounter + Nano Router + Clock Design).
• Ability to run checking tools is a significant plus to validate the physical design work ( e.g. Innovus Timing, Calibre LVS/DRC).
• Strong experience in the ability to understand and debug physical design and timing closure issues.
• Understanding of all aspects in the integration of an ASIC: DFT, power considerations, noise coupling, etc.
• Ability to implement bit-stacking (analytical placement) when needed, as well as other techniques required to achieve aggressive placement densities for both data and clock logic.
• Strong skills with TCL and/or other scripting language.
