Job Information

Qualcomm Physical Design Engineer, Sr. in Austin, Texas

Company:

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Job Area:

Engineering Group, Engineering Group > ASICS Engineering

General Summary

In this position, you will be working in areas related to QUALCOMM's DSP core implementation that are used for leading edge products; oversee definition, design, and documentation for

ASIC development for a variety of products; determine architecture design, logic design; define module interfaces/formats for simulation; evaluate all aspects of the process flow from

high-level design to synthesis, place and route, and timing and power use; uses language such as HDL, C, PERL, tCL, python; and provide technical expertise for next generation initiatives.

Responsibilities:

Include various aspects of physical design and implementation of DSP.

Work with the synthesis team as well as interacing with the logic RTL team.

Update the flows to best suit the design and make tradeoff for optimum PPA, and create handoffs to top-level chip teams

•Perform core level timing ECOs as well as implement fixes.

•Drive the development of semi-custom design techniques where appropriate to

maximize utilization, performance, and power efficiency

•Use and extend/enhance design methodologies to achieve the best PPA

through scripting

•Work independently with little supervision.

•Make decisions that are moderate in impact; errors may have financial impact

or effect on projects, operations, or customer relationships; errors may require

involvement beyond immediate work group to correct.

•Use verbal and written communication skills to convey complex and/or

detailed information to multiple individuals/audiences with differing knowledge

levels. May require strong negotiation and influence, communication to large

groups or high-level constituents.

•Have a moderate amount of influence over key organizational decisions (e.g.,

is consulted by senior leadership to provide input on key decisions).

•Complete tasks that do not have defined steps; simultaneous use of multiple

mental abilities is generally required to determine the best approach; mistakes

may result in significant rework.

•Exercise substantial creativity to innovate new processes, procedures, or work

products within guidelines or to achieve established objectives.

•Use deductive and inductive problem solving; multiple approaches may be

taken/necessary to solve the problem; often information is missing or

conflicting; advanced data analysis and interpretation skills are required.

•Occasionally participate in strategic planning within own area affecting

immediate operations.

•Use tools/applications (i.e., Cadence, RTL Compiler, etc.) to execute advanced

architecture and design of multiple complex blocks and makes suggestions for

design protocol.

•Develop an implementation strategy that meets system requirements and

customer needs for team.

•Effectively utilize advanced problem solving and ASIC engineering practices to

resolve complex architecture, design, or verification problems.

•Own the design and verification strategies of ASICs, SoC, and IP cores, reviews

the strategies of more junior team members and develops strategies for

multiple blocks or IC Packages.

•Review complex tests from more junior team members and completes own

tests to ensure that bugs are fully understood and analyzed.

•Run advanced power checks on multiple blocks to ensure design

specifications are met; makes recommendations to leadership when

specifications are not met.

Minimum Qualifications:

•Bachelor's degree in Science, Engineering, or related field.

•2+ years ASIC design, verification, or related work experience.
