Description & Requirements

Description of Job Opening
Youll be responsible for SoC power estimation, simulation, roll-up and measurement. This is an end-to-end role that starts with architectural assessment and continues through the design and post-silicon phases. It also includes documenting power-related specifications in datasheets and working with customers on power-related topics.

Job Duties and Responsibilities:

- Early-phase architectural power estimation using spreadsheet models, process technology scaling data, IP specifications, and comparison to existing products

- Design-phase simulation/extraction and roll-up of power projections using analysis/estimation tools such as ptpx, redhawk and voltus. Iterate/improve the estimates as more accurate design collateral becomes available.

- Silicon measurement of power across use cases. Extract static and dynamic components and build models that can be used to project power for new configurations (frequency, voltage, etc.).

- Correlate silicon measurements to pre-silicon estimates in order to improve the pre-silicon estimation methodology

- Provide input to datasheet on how power specifications should be documented  including max current by voltage rail, TDP by voltage rail, etc.

- Support applications engineering teams in customer engagement related to power topics

Who Youll Work With:

- SoC architects during the project feasibility phase

- SoC design engineers (logic design as well as physical design) during the chip development phase.

- Applications and silicon validation engineers during the post-silicon phase, and for customer engagement.

Ideal Skill Set:

- You have a solid understanding of SoC power estimation methodologies, starting with high-level architectural approaches and continuing through EDA-based power extraction/simulation and lab measurements.

- You have knowledge and experience with power analysis tools like PTPX, redhawk, and Voltus.

- You can define and implement a methodology to estimate/simulate power at individual block level and then roll it up at SoC level

- You are familiar with power measurement methods and have experience in working with post-silicon teams to define and execute a power characterization plan.

- You have strong verbal and written communication skills and experience/desire to engage with customers

- You have at least a BS in Electrical/Computer Engineering. MS is preferrable, as is 10+ years of experience.
