Machine learning and computer vision. These breakthroughs are ushering in the era of Smart, Secure Everything-where devices are getting smarter, everything's connected, and everything must be secure.
Powering this new era of technology are advanced silicon chips, which are made even smarter by the remarkable software that drives them. Synopsys is at the forefront of Smart, Secure Everything with the world's most advanced tools for silicon chip design, verification, IP integration, and application security testing. Our technology helps customers innovate from Silicon to Software, so they can deliver Smart, Secure Everything.
In this role, you will work on the design, development, and refinement of Multi-Gbps NRZ & PAM4 SERDES IP. You will be part of a fast-growing analog and mixed signal R&D team developing high speed (>100Gbps) analog integrated circuits in the latest FinFET process nodes. Working from SerDes standards to block specifications, you quickly identify potential circuit architectures and successful design strategies. You will work with a cross functional design team of analog and digital designers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our environment is best in class with a full suite of IC design tools supplemented by custom, in-house tools supported by an experienced software/CAD team.
Our Solution IP group in Boxborough, Massachusetts is looking for an enthusiastic person to join our team. You will be working with a cross functional team of analog and mixed signal circuit designers from a wide variety of backgrounds on design and methodology. This position requires
strong technical experience in full custom analog/mixed-signal circuit design, custom layout, circuit simulations,
and a deep understanding of silicon IP design requirements with the ability to lead and train junior engineers to become experts with new methodologies.
Job ResponsibilitiesReview SerDes standards to develop analog top and sub-block specifications.Ability to lead projects and guide junior engineers.Exercise independent judgement to identify and refine circuit architectures to achieve optimal power, area and performance targets.Propose design and verification strategies that efficiently use simulator features to ensure highest quality design.Oversee physical layout to minimize the effect of parasitics, device stress, and process variation.Review and present simulation data for peer and customer review.Define and document design features and test plans.Propose solutions for post-silicon design updates.
Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or similar technical fieldBSEE degree and 12-15 years of experience in IC design, or MSEE (or PhD) with 8-12 years of experience.Design experience in high speed PHY such as DDR, HBM or SERDESIn depth familiarity with transistor level circuit design - sound CMOS design fundamentals.Detailed design experience with one, and familiarity with several other SerDes sub-circuits: receive equalizers, samplers, voltage/current-mode drivers, serializers, deserializers, voltage-controlled oscillator, phase mixer, delay-locked loop, phase locked loop, bandgap reference, ADC, DAC.Familiarity with custom digital design (i.e. high-speed critical paths).Understanding of design for reliability (i.e. EM, IR, aging, etc.)Understanding of layout effects (i.e. matching, reliability, proximity effects, etc.).Experience with tools for schematic entry, physical layout, and design verification.Understanding of SPICE simulators and simulation methods.Knowledgeable in Verilog-A for analog behavioral modeling and simulation-control/data-capture.Experience with TCL, Perl, C, Python, MATLAB, or other scripting languages is desired.Hands-on experience with physical layout of high-speed circuits is a plus.Good communication and documentation skillsThe base salary range across the U.S. for this role is between $117,000-$204,000. In addition, this role may be eligible for an annual bonus, equity, and other discretionary bonuses. Synopsys offers comprehensive health, wellness, and financial benefits as part of a of a competitive total rewards package. The actual compensation offered will be based on a number of job-related factors, including location, skills, experience, and education. Your recruiter can share more specific details on the total rewards package upon request.
