Silicon Laboratories International Pte Ltd

SoC Chip Design Lead

Full Time  / 10 to 15 Years experience

Job Description   

What we’re looking for:

This position involves the development of complex SoC/chip architectures with multi-core, multi-threaded processor subsystems, AI accelerators, interconnects, memory architecture and multi-level caches, multiple clocks and resets, high-speed interfaces, peripherals. The chosen candidate would need to contribute to, and manage a team for, the development of architecture, microarchitecture, and design of SoCs which include RISC-V, ARM or proprietary processor designs, and high-speed interfaces for off-chip memories, along with the integration of wireless systems, power management, and mixed signal IP. The candidate would be responsible for the leading a project through the entire product development process.

Skills you’ll need:

  • Lead the development and execution of Wireless SoC’s from definition, through execution, and into production
  • Definition and Planning
    • Coordinate with the product marketing teams to develop the SoC requirements.  Provide the necessary design collateral to support the product approval gates.
    • Develop and maintain the SoC architecture or technical specification to meet the product requirements, with a key goal to maximize IP reuse.
    • Develop the design schedule, including milestones and resource requirements.  Coordinate with cross functional teams (such as software) on dependencies.
  • Project Execution
    • Coordinate with global design functional leads (RF, baseband, verification, etc) to track execution, triage issues, and perform prudent escalation.
    • Represent the design community to provide succinct weekly status and attend the cross functional meeting.       Drive design action items to closure.
    • Perform SoC Design Integration and maintain design collateral such as documentation, register libraries, and pinouts delivered to cross functional teams.
    • Follow established quality procedures and processes to achieve first tapeout.
  • Validation to Production
    • Actively support the validation and product test teams during silicon bringup, validation, characterization, and qualification.
    • Triage, track, and resolve issues reported during silicon evaluation.   Execute a metal or full layer revision, if necessary
Job Requirements

Education and/or Experience:

  • Tech/M.Tech in related branches of electronics and computer science with a minimum of 10 years of related experience.
  • Capable of leading complex IP, SOC development projects execution. Experience coordinating with contractors a plus.
  • Top-down planning and execution of SOC projects.
  • Experience in full-chip development cycle
  • Able to build strong technical team.
  • Hands-on experience in architecture, micro-architecture, digital design processes
  • Knowledge of high-speed interfaces like USB, PCIe, Ethernet, Mobile DDR, Quad/Octa-SPI
  • Knowledge of peripheral interfaces like SDIO, UART, I2S, I2C, PWM, CAN, etc.
  • Knowledge of processors like RISC-V and ARM processors
  • Knowledge of design signoff flows including Lint, CDC, Formal Verification, Synthesis, Constraints and STA Timing Closure
  • Knowledge of DFT including Scan, ATPG, MBIST
  • Knowledge of low power design methodology (static/dynamic clock gating, power gating, dynamic voltage and frequency scaling)
  • Knowledge of hardware accelerators
  • Knowledge of Verilog and System Verilog
  • Knowledge of scripting languages like Perl, Python, Tcl, shell

Benefits & Perks:

Not only will you be joining a highly skilled and tight-knit team where every engineer makes a significant impact on the product; we also strive for good work/life balance and to make our environment welcoming and fun.
