Senior SOC & DFT RTL Development Engineer

Location: Austin, TX, United States
Date Posted: 12-10-2018
Position Title: Senior or Senior/Staff SOC & DFT RTL Development Engineer
Location: Austin, TX
Status: Full-time

About the Team:
Join the growing Encore Semi Front-End Development team to drive the RTL development of IP blocks that implement the framework for a SOC for a high-performance system.  The SOC will be targeting new and innovative approaches for autonomous vehicles, safety and security and VR/AR.  Building on your background in Logic Design, you would own a full segment of the SOC working closely with Verification and Physical Design teams to deliver highly optimized products.

About the Project:
As a senior member of an SOC development team, you would contribute to, or ideally own, the design of a block implementing the SOC’s infrastructure.  You would create the microarchitecture and the RTL implementation and work with the Verification and Physical Design team to deliver a highly functional design meeting aggressive product goals.  An area of special focus will likely be in creating the blocks which implement Design-for-Test (DFT) and Design-for-Debug (DFD) features such as BIST or scan controllers or fuse blocks and controllers.  If you have both architecture / microarchitecture knowledge and RTL / Logic Design experience, joining the Encore Semi RTL team could be for you.

Minimum Qualifications:
• Logic / RTL Design experience especially developing logic blocks to implement SOC-wide protocol
• Experience working with multiple clock domains and dealing with asynchronous events
• Experience implementing blocks which enable DFT (Design-for-Test) and/or DFD (Design-for-Debug) features such as BIST, scan or fuse controllers
• Working with Physical Design teams to understand and incorporate feedback related to timing constraints as well as SOC level clocking and reset
• 7+ years of RTL / Logic Development experience including working with Physical Design and Verification Engineers

Preferred Qualifications:
• Computer architecture background to enable flexibility to designing multiple different areas of the large SOC
• Experience with neural networks, audio processing or image processing 
• Experience with scripting including with Python or Ruby

Education Requirements:
• Required: Bachelor's, Electrical Engineering
• Preferred: Master's, Electrical Engineering
