AI Silicon Design – RTL/Architecture Engineer:

RTL design and microarchitecture definition of high-performance microprocessors going into industry leading AI/ML architecture. The person coming into this role will define new features and code the RTL across multiple areas of our processor Core. The work is done alongside with a group of highly experienced engineers across various domains of the AI chip.

Responsibilities:

  • Define architecture and logic design requirements by understanding rapidly evolving AI/ML models; work with engineers across domains to understand real world use cases
  • RTL coding in Verilog leveraging on both industry tools as well as open-source infrastructure
  • Drive trade-offs for your logic by working closely with performance, DV and physical design engineers to craft optimal solutions that meet the design goals
  • Deploy innovative techniques for improving power, performance and area of the design, drive experiments with RTL and evaluate synthesis, timing and power results
  • Debug RTL/logic issues across various hierarchies (ex: core, chip) in both pre-silicon and post-silicon environment

Experience and qualifications:

  • BS/MS/PhD in EE/ECE/CE/CS with at least 5 years of experience
  • Experience with computer architecture/system components/network/fabrics as a part of a CPU, ASIC or SOC design team
  • Expertise in logic design and ability to evaluate functional, performance, timing and power for you design
  • Strong experience with hardware description languages (Verilog, VHDL) and simulators (VCS, NC, Verilator)
  • Expertise in microarchitecture definition and specification development
  • Prior experience in industry standard ISAs – ARM, RISC-V, X86 preferred
  • Strong problem solving and debug skills across various levels of design hierarchies
