Who We Are

Cisco SiliconOne team is looking for an expert and talented Senior ASIC Design Engineer. You will have an ASIC design background with hands-on experience in design, physical design, post silicon validation, with in-depth knowledge of ASIC/SoC development cycle, the best industry practices, from specification through tape-out and lab validation, and a proven track record of success in high-performance/high-volume products.

What You'll Do

The role expects you to be specifically responsible for the Static Verification of the chip, which includes :

  • Static Timing Analysis, developing Timing Constraints, understanding the top-level design and vendor IPs/PLLs/Serdes/PHY Macros and all aspects of timing modes including DFT timing.
  • Analysis of cross clock domain paths at Full chip level and experience with CDC analysis tools.
  • Drive the Formal verification flow including Logic Equivalence Check (LEC) flow using Formal tools like Formality and assertion based formal verification tools like VC-Formal.
  • Document and improve methodologies to make product successful.

Who You Are

  • Worked in micro-architecture and design of high-scale, high-performance ASICs.
  • Validated experience in implementation: specification, design, formal verification, system testing.
  • Validated experience in physical design aspects: timing analysis and closure, CDC analysis, power/area optimizations, macro size/placement analysis.
  • Validated experience in flow automation (scripting, Makefiles, etc), and establishing guidelines for the team.
  • Good interpersonal skills, and validated leadership to accurately describe issues and make improvements.
  • 7+ years of hands on experience in large-scale, high-performance ASIC.

  • Experienced in system debug and SW/HW bringup, system validation of silicon towards FCS.
  • RTL and Synthesis experience.
  • Synthesis and Block/Full chip STA constraints and Timing analysis
  • Experience with PrimeTime and Spyglass CDC (or equivalent tools)
  • End-to-end design experience from Verilog to gates, block planning, area/timing closure is helpful.
  • Programming/scripting skills (C, C++, Perl)
  • Good written/verbal interpersonal skills and leadership skills.
