The Company

ConSol Partners customer develops next generation RF transceivers, supporting 2G, 3G and 4G (LTE) protocols. Today, we're seeking team players who get things done and share a passion for bringing new wireless technologies to the rapidly growing mobile market. Now is your chance to join the world class engineering team and develop new, world-leading products.

The Role

The successful candidate will execute the full flow from synthesis netlist to a GDSII, including the timing, power and physical verification. He/she will work together with the front-end team to get to a timing clean design and work with the chip integration team to have the final design correctly integrated in a higher level of hierarchy.

  • Clock tree synthesis (CTS): optimizing the clock tree is essential and often requires a mix of clock tree synthesis and (partial) manual instantiation of the clock tree for the most sensitive parts.
  • Placement and routing
  • Structured & hierarchical layout, manual placement and routing.
  • static timing analysis (STA) and closure
  • Signal integrity (SI) analysis and closure
  • IR drop analysis
  • power analysis (static and dynamic)
  • DRC and LVS sign-off.

The Individual

  • Minimum 8 years' experience
  • MS in EE, Computer Engineering, or equivalent field
  • Experience with digital hardware: RTL design (VHDL, Verilog), logic optimization, RTL compiler, deep sub-micron.
  • Experience with (mainly Cadence) backend tools: Innovus (CTS, CPF, SDC, STA, SI, …), Redhawk, ….
  • Prior experience with high speed digital designs is a big plus.
