Website Flex Logix

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 nnMAX Inference IP has industryleading 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:

  • PnR (RTL to GDS) and timing closure for EFLX cores in different process nodes (40nm, 28nm, 16nm, 14nm, 7nm)
  • optimization of custom digital cell library used for Look Up Tables, DSP and
    Interconnect switches for optimal performance, power and area (PPA)
  • timing closure (RTL to GDS) for EFLX/NMAX cores
  • Timing Verification for EFLX/NMAX cores
  • EM and IR analysis of EFLX/NMAX cores
  • DFT/ATPG pattern generation
  • Validation (testing) of the EFLX/NMAX cores

EXPERIENCE AND SKILL REQUIRED

  • Must have experience in at least one successfully taped out a silicon design
    BSEE/MSEE with 3 or more years of relevant industry experience
  • Must be very smart and very motivated
  • Must have hands-on experience in Back-End Physical Design (RTL to GDS) PnR using tools such as Cadence Innovus or Synopsys ICC.

Preferred experience OR willing to quickly learn:

  • Standard cell library development including LIB/LEF development
  • Synthesis of the EFLX/NMAX cores
  • Scripting language such as Perl, Python
  • RTL design
  • Must be passionate about being part of an aggressive, venture-backed startup team that is changing chip architecture. Must be entrepreneurial, innovative problem solver and willing to work hard.
