Our product portfolio comprises general purpose and specialized 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers, 32-bit microprocessors, field-programmable gate array (FPGA) products, a broad spectrum of high-performance linear, mixed-signal, power management, thermal management, radio frequency (RF), timing, safety, security, wired connectivity and wireless connectivity devices, as well as serial Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EEPROM), Serial Flash memories, Parallel Flash memories, and serial Static Random Access Memory (SRAM).
We also license Flash-IP solutions that are incorporated in a broad range of products.
As a CAD / PDK Enginee r you will use your understanding of integrated circuits and process technologies to implement specifications for process design kits (PDKs) and design automation.
You will develop and maintain in-house PDKs as well as install and customize external foundry PDKs. Both require close collaboration with design teams, technology development teams, and several groups within the CAD department.
PDK development tasks will include creating and maintaining technology files, symbols, layout pcells, CDFs, netlisting, and callbacks.
In addition, you will build test structures and run simulation, physical verification, and parasitic extraction to ensure proper model and verification deck integration.
You will be required to develop and maintain automation utilities using Cadence SKILL and LINUX scripting languages. You will also provide user support of the both the PDKs and the design capture and layout tools, to worldwide design centers and technical contractors.
This will include providing user training, both in person and online, and maintaining web documentation.
Qualified candidate could have an opportunity to manage projects and lead a team.
