Job Overview

To strengthen their existing IC design team, my client are currently looking for a junior digital IC designer. The engineer requested for this position will be responsible for design, simulation and full validation of several programmable functional units within a complex IC device, which is at the core of their flagship power adapter product. you will be reporting to the head of the IC team. The selected person will work in close collaboration with our R&D team for the development of new IPs to be integrated into the next generation ASICs.

Main Responsibilities:

You should be a motivated and proactive engineer, able to work well within an independent team and ready to be involved in:

  • VHDL / Verilog / System-Verilog design at RT-Level of core functional blocks
  • Implementation of RTL-to-Syn IC design flow, including timing/power analysis
  • Testbench design in system-verilog (UVM compliant)
  • Verification of digital IPs using simulation tools at different abstraction level (from RTL to post-layout)
  • Co-simulation of digital and analog IPs to validate the whole mixed-signal system
  • FPGA prototyping of core digital IPs
  • Silicon validation activities with laboratory instrumentation

Qualifications and Background
  • PhD or MS Degree in Microelectronics or Physics
  • 3-10+ years related experience
