Job Description and Requirements

Our IP Design and Development Team Is Hiring:

DDR IP is a staple of the mixed-signal IP market, and Synopsys is the leading provider of DDR IP products.  All current and next-generation technologies like LPDDR5X, DDR5, and beyond, are being developed by the DDR IP team.  Both digital and analog components, all developed by the DDR RTL team, complement each other in creating a high-performance, high-bandwidth, low-latency and low-power product.

Some descriptions of requirements and tasks are as follows.  The ideal candidate is or has:
  • Extensive design and technical leadership experience (12+ years) in digital and mixed-signal ASIC and custom RTL design, using leading-edge technologies. 
  • Experience with synthesizable Verilog and System Verilog design concepts and implementation.
    • This involves designing, developing, and evaluating DDR (Dual Data Rate) memory PHY designs for DDR5, LPDDR5, and similar existing and future memory JEDEC specifications.
  • Proficient in Verilog with broad experience in RTL architecture, development, and debug. 
  • Working knowledge of testbench development , including use of simulation debug tools such as waveform debuggers, assertions, and coverage collection and review. 
  • Working knowledge of RTL lint tools. 
  • Experience with front-end design flows such as synthesis, timing investigation and closure, cross-domain clocking, and power optimization techniques.
  • Demonstrated ability using scripting languages (perl, python, etc.) and UNIX operating system environment for supporting RTL development tasks and build, test, and release flows.
  • Experience with C or C++, especially in an embedded processor application environment.

Preferred candidates have one or more of the following:

  • Experience with both ASIC and FPGA synthesis, and exposure to emulation technologies.
  • Ability to coordinate, communicate with, and steer technical, cross-site teams and designs across time zones.
  • Contributes to development of business unit goals and practices, achieving results in innovative and effective ways.
  • Customarily exercises a high level of unaided judgment and interpretation in developing methods, techniques and evaluation criteria to obtain results.
  • Drives projects, programs, and business initiatives.
  • Regularly acts autonomously to establish methods and procedures on new or special assignments and projects.
  • Advises senior management on specialized technical issues.
    Post-graduate coursework or knowledge-base equivalent is expected.
