- Manage PCB layout design resources
- Prototype bring up and debugging
- Functional verification
- Signal characterization
- 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
- 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
