Digital ASIC Design Engineer
Direct Hire
US Citizen with Ability to hold security clearance

Client is seeking talented and motivated individuals to tackle challenging engineering problems. As a Digital ASIC Designer, you will be responsible for designing high-performance digital ASICs in advanced technologies—14nm FinFET, 22FDX, etc. You will work in multi-disciplinary teams with opportunities to learn, grow and contribute to a variety of projects in this area.

Applicants should possess solid skills in front and back-end digital systems design with experience in design flows from Cadence or Synopsys, and a working knowledge of analog design principles and signal / power integrity. Familiarity with architectures for secure systems design, e.g., cryptographic encoders / decoders or tagged processor architectures is a plus.

Specific Responsibilities:

  • System architecture design
  • Detailed analysis design and capture
  • Manage PCB layout design resources
  • Prototype bring up and debugging
  • Functional verification
  • Signal characterization
  • Testing

Required Qualifications:

  • PhD or MSEE+6 preferred
  • Strong analysis and problem solving skills
  • Fluent in Verilog/VHDL
  • Fluent in Cadence or equivalent Digital ASIC Tool Suite, e.g., Genus, Innovus, Tempus, Voltus, etc.
  • Experience with high-level design, simulation, and verification tools
  • Experience with scripting languages Python/PERL and regular expressions
  • Experience with MATLAB, Simulink, and HDL Coder
  • Experience with C, C++, or Java
  • Ability to acquire a security clearance if needed

Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience with Linux/UNIX OS, piping, batching, etc.
  • Experience with SRAM compilers and architecture tradespace
  • Familiarity with memory design for SRAM, DRAM, and NVRAM
  • Familiarity with SOC tradespace including processor selection, memory and bus implementation and architecture
  • Familiarity with interface specifications: SPI, I2C, MIL-STD-1553, RS-232, RS-422, PCIE, AXI, and Ethernet
  • Familiarity with hardware security, e.g., encryption, key management, TRNG/DRNG, PUFs, root-of-trust, design obfuscation, etc.
  • Familiarity with analog ASICs: Voltage and Current sources, Amplifiers, Converters, PLLs, and Transceivers
