Xilinx is seeking an experienced front end implementation engineer for the development of high-performance IP blocks in the company’s next generation product. Successful candidates will be responsible for prototype implementation of assigned IP blocks to ensure RTL meets all defined quality metrics. As a member of the Hard IP Design group, you will work on both design flow automation and product implementation for tape-out. Close interaction with both the RTL design team and signoff/back-end implementation team is essential. Responsibilities include SDC generation/verification, logic synthesis, running RTL LINT, DFT DRC, and CDC verification. Additional responsibilities may include the development of power intent constraints (UPF), running LEC, Memory BIST insertion, and scan insertion. Maximizing efficiency through the effective use of automation throughout these processes is expected.
Applicants should possess a BS/MS in EE or equivalent field with applicable work experience in the several of the following tools. The position requires substantial TCL-based scripting competence within CAD tool shell environments as well as stand-alone TCL shell scripts. Prior work experience in CAD, RTL, or front end implementation teams is expected.
- Synopsys Design Compiler
- Prime Time experience including SDC constraint development for complex blocks with many clock domains
- Strong TCL scripting background
Experience in the following is highly desired:
- Mentor Questa CDC (Zero In)
- Cadence Conformal LEC
- Cadence Conformal Low Power including UPF development
- Mentor Tessent Shell Memory BIST
Education and Years of Experience Requirements: Minimum of a BS with 12+ years or MS with 8+ years or PhD with 5+ years
Education/Field Requirements: Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or related equivalent
Highly motivated candidates with strong written and verbal communication skills and structured, well-organized work habits are desired.
