Low Power Design/Methodology Engineer
- Location: San Diego, CA
Design low power / power management controller IP blocks including AVS (adaptive voltage scaling), ACD (adaptive clock distribution), on-chip sensor controller, digital power meter, and embedded voltage regulator controller. Design 3rd party PHY IP wrapper and IP landing. Provide SoC integration support. Perform RTL design, simulation, synthesis, timing analysis, lint check, clock domain crossing check, conformal low power check, and formal verification for IP blocks. Work closely with technology/circuit design team to close IP block specification/requirement. Work closely with verification/physical design team to complete the IP design implementation. Support SoC team to integrate low power / power management IP solution into wireless SoC chips and front-end design flows. Work closely with system/software/test team to enable the low power feature in wireless SoC product. Evaluate new low-power technologies and analyze their applications to address requirements. Provide feedback for low-power chip and system architecture. Understand and perform block & chip-level power analysis. Understand and create block-level power models.
BS or MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering 3 years of experience doing low power digital ASIC design. Familiar with ASIC front-end design process and related flow, including u-arch, RTL coding, simulation, synthesis, STA. Previous experience in AVS (adaptive voltage scaling) desired. Understanding of electrical engineering concepts, circuit analysis and logic design skills. Familiarity with advanced low power techniques and high speed clocking desired.
