Physical Design Engineer

At Lightelligence, we’re building computational machines that are solving problems in ways that have never been done before. We’re looking for a physical design engineer.

What you’ll do at Lightelligence:  

  • Define back-end physical design methodology for ASIC tapeouts 

  • Feasibility analysis, wiring studies 

  • Define ASIC clocking methodology & rules for ASIC blocks and full-chip and define and own clocking architecture, reset and power sequencing strategy for ASICs 

  • Floorplanning, synthesis, place & route, timing and design closure 

  • Custom placement of critical blocks (digital and analog) 

  • Power analysis 

Required Qualifications:  

  • BS or MS in a relevant discipline such as Electrical Engineering and at least 5-7 years experience 

  • Experience with ASIC physical design flow from feasibility to signoff using commercial EDA tools 

  • Track record of successful tapeouts of ASICs of significant scope (size, frequency, power) 

  • Willingness to learn new skills and do the work necessary to succeed.
