As part of the Qualcomm DTCO team in one of the largest fabless design powerhouses, the selected candidate will evaluate the most advanced logic technology from a DTCO and a PPA standpoint, with the ultimate goal of co-defining / optimizing technology features & entitlements with foundry and research partners. The selected candidate will be part of core DTCO team responsible for pathfinding and validation of standard-cell (and block-level) DTCO boosters, for better Power and Performance, in technologies with advanced transistors architecture such as GAA / FINFET and advanced stdcell MOL schemes.
+ Responsibilities include re-defining and optimizing stdcell architecture on PPA benefits, with existing process definition or minimum changes.
+ In order to define DTCO boosters directions for standard-cell level, the selected candidate will be involved on extensive RO /delay-chain based assessment with detailed intrinsic parasitic breakdown.
+ The selected candidate will be part of block-level Physical Design (PD) based PPA activity/regression for DTCO boosters impact analysis at block level.
+ The selected candidate will also be required to analyze and interpret the result of complex Power Performance Area (PPA) projects for DTCO and block level boosters.
+ Finally, the selected candidate will actively participate in meetings with both internal cross functional teams and external Foundry/EDA/Research partners.
The ideal candidate would possess the following qualifications
+ Experience working with customers (internal & external), and cross-functional teams.
+ Addon exposure/experience on 3DIC design implementation and STCO boosters explorations from RTL to full design PD Experience is a big plus.
