Position title: High-Speed CPU Core Physical Design Engineers
Location: San Diego, CA
Status: full-time
About the team:
The growing Encore Semi SoC implementation team collaborates with our customers on design of advanced systems for wireless communication, networking, storage, and automotive using innovative new core architectures. Joining our team, you will build on a background of working with state-of-the-art semiconductor design.   
About the project:
As a high-speed physical design engineer you will be part of a team that will develop, implement, and verify high-speed processor cores using state-of-the-art tools and technologies. Tasks involve the development and enablement of low power implementation methods, customized P&R to achieve area reduction and performance goals, and the development of high-speed customized logic cells. Additional responsibilities in this role involves good understanding of functional and test mode constraints for place and route, floorplanning, power planning, IR drop analysis, placement, multi-mode & multi-corner (MMMC) clock tree synthesis, routing, timing optimization, 2.5D RC extraction, signal integrity, cross talk noise and delay analysis, debugging timing violations for multi-mode and multi-corner designs, implementing timing fixes, rolling in functional ECOs, physical verification (drc, lvs, antenna), debugging and fixing violations and formal verification. The individual also should have deep knowledge on scripting and software languages including PERL/TCL, Linux/Unix shell and C. This individual will design, verify and delivers complex modem CPU Physical Design solutions from netlist and timing constraints to the final product.
