Senior SoC Design Engineer
Posted on: January 15, 2023
Summary:At Intel we take pride in creating an energetic and dynamic
work environment that is driven by ingenuity and innovation. We
believe the growth and success of our company is directly linked to
the growth and satisfaction of our employees. That is why Intel is
committed to a work environment that is flexible and collaborative
and allows our employees to reach their full potential.
Intel is a world leader in programmable logic solutions or FPGAs,
enabling system designers and semiconductor companies to rapidly
and cost effectively innovate, differentiate, and win in their
markets. Intel combines the programmable logic technology
originally invented in 1983 by Altera with software tools,
intellectual property, and customer support to provide high-value
programmable solutions to thousands of customers worldwide.
As a Senior SOC Design Engineer, you will be responsible for the
micro-architecture and design of SoCs and related IPs within the
SoC Design group handling hyperscale computing, configuration, and
security of programmable devices.
Most development happens pre-silicon and requires working closely
with silicon design, firmware, and validation teams for testing and
support. During post silicon phase, engineer is expected to work
with silicon validation team for productization.As a senior member
of the SOC-FPGA Configuration design team, you will be responsible
for the micro-architecture, RTL design and/or integration of SoC
components and IPs.
Core responsibilities will include:
- Work with architects, software engineers, verification
engineers, and physical designers to define and implement the logic
for our unique SOC-FPGA products within a culture of industry
standard best practices and methodologies.
- Designing and writing well-documented, high quality, and
- Working with the Design Verification team to review test plans
and assist in test failure debug.
- Support the post-silicon validation team to define validation
strategies, test plans, quality reviews, and assist with debug when
- Defining timing constraints and working with physical design
engineers for design implementation.
- BS in Computer or Electrical Engineering or equivalent with 10+
years of experience or master's degree with 7 years of experience
in memory technologies.
- Proven industry-track in writing and verifying complex RTL
logic for SOC designs, preferably in Verilog or System
- Experience working with verification engineers on simulation or
emulation flows and familiarity with industry standard verification
methodologies (UVM, Formal, Assertions, Cover points, IPXACT).
- Experience owning and debugging timing constraints, UPF,
synthesis, and driving IP quality checks and releases.
- Experience working with physical design engineers to assist
with the implementation flow, e.g., clock tree synthesis, floor
planning, and implementing ECO fixes.
- Analytical and communication experience and be capable to work
with and influence a globally distributed team.
- Working knowledge and/or experience in integrating hyperscale
computing cores in SoCs (x86, ARM, RISC-V, MIPS).
- Experience in implementing Security design systems with proven
- Experience with performance analysis and integration of cache
coherent and high-performance NOC architectures.
- Experience with clock planning, performance analysis, and
driving physical implementation of complex clocking and reset
- Familiarity with designing/integrating cryptographic,
interface, storage and/or compression IPs will be a plus.
- Experience with cache coherent NOC, high speed peripherals, and
HW-SW programming interface is a plus.
- Experience in advanced low-power design techniques on SoC will
be a plus.
- Experience with post silicon debugging experience is a
