Job Description

Become a key member of a team participating in the physical design construction and integration and verification of a future Intel CPU! This position requires an engineer with broad physical design and STA skills, coupled with leadership skills necessary to drive methodology and to collaborate effectively with multiple functional teams within the CPU design team.

We are looking for a talented individual to drive the physical and timing convergence of a Full-Chip (FC) assembly of partitions. As a FC design engineer, you will perform floor planning, pin and feedthrough planning, repeater insertion, power grid generation, assembly of partitions, push-down partition collateral generation, constraints management and STA verification.

Given the need for executing multiple projects in parallel, you will be responsible for driving efficiency and quality improvements to the overall FC methodology - including floorplan optimization for better utilization/QoR/runtime and timing and physical aware feedthrough/pin placement. You will also be responsible for coordinating collateral handoffs between the FC Design team and other functions within back-end design such as Clocking, Power Delivery and Partition synthesis/APR. You will drive physical design and timing closure including FEV, LVS, DRC, and reliability verification (IR drop / EM analysis).

The ideal candidate should have an aptitude to work effectively with EDA tools and exhibit behavioral traits that indicate:

  • Teamwork and be productive under aggressive schedules
