Flex Logix is the leader in eFPGA with working silicon and customers in 40, 28/22, 16/12 and 14/12 nm nodes with 7/6nm about to start. And our new nn

MAX Inference IP has industry leading throughput/and throughput/watt for neural networking with silicon coming 3/20.

RESPONSIBILITIES
Digital Design Engineer involved in digital and circuit design of EFLX (embedded FPGA) and
nnMAX (inference accelerator) cores in 40nm, 28/22nm, 16/12nm, 14/12nm and 7/6nm.
– Responsible for all aspects of silicon design including:
o PnR (RTL to GDS) and timing closure for EFLX cores in different process nodes (40nm,
28nm, 16nm, 14nm, 7nm)
o optimization of custom digital cell library used for Look Up Tables, DSP and
Interconnect switches for optimal performance, power and area (PPA)
o timing closure (RTL to GDS) for EFLX/NMAX cores
o Timing Verification for EFLX/NMAX cores
o EM and IR analysis of EFLX/NMAX cores
o DFT/ATPG pattern generation
o Validation (testing) of the EFLX/NMAX cores
