  • Performing developmental and/or test work

  • Reviewing product requirements and logic diagrams

  • Planning and organizing design projects or phases of design projects

  • Responds to customer/client requests or events as they occur

  • Develops solutions to problems utilizing formal education and judgement

As a Senior Core Timing Lead, your responsibilities include, but will not be limited to:

  • Building a high-confidence plan for core-level timing convergence of an aggressive high frequency design

  • Analyzing core timing at a micro-architectural level by developing a high-level understanding of the core pipeline

  • Coordinating across domains such as micro-architecture, DFx, SOC Integration, Clocking, etc.

  • Defining core timing convergence methodology to support convergence across voltage domains, clock domains, and PV points

  • Influencing program direction with technical proposals, analysis and recommendations

  • Leading and mentoring junior technical staff members.

As an ideal candidate you exhibit behavioral traits that indicate your:

  • Ability to use sound methods and data to test new ideas as well as the desire to have your own ideas be challenged by others

Minimum Qualifications:

Bachelors in Computer Engineering, or Electrical Engineering with 9 years of relevant work experience or M.S. in Computer Engineering, or Electrical Engineering with 6 years of relevant work experience

Demonstrated success in one or more of the following areas:

  • Ownership of timing integration for a complex project from planning through execution

  • Experience weighing various trade-offs at the integration level, including timing, power, area, and complexity

  • Applied circuit/logic design knowledge in support of timing convergence

  • Tackling deep submicron and high speed design challenges, including process effects across a large dynamic voltage range, aggressive clock network design, and process variation

  • Experience with industry standard integrated circuit design and integration tools, including static timing analysis, floor planning, and design closure

  • Scripting in an interpreted language, minimum TCL in addition to at least one other e.g. Perl, Python, Ruby

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with timing convergence on a high-speed Core IP

  • Research publications, patent filings, or other evidence of personal technical innovation in CPU/Microprocessor design
