Do you want to shape how the next generation of compute systems extract maximum performance and power efficiency from the latest process technologies? In the Central Technology – Systems team, we have a diverse set of engineers covering all aspects of architectural system definition.

You have the opportunity to extend our capabilities for System-Technology co-optimisation! If you have experience in clock and power management design and how they relate to digital timing closure, you will be applying this to systems using 2.5D and 3D packaging technologies.

– System partitioning for 3D IC systems

– Develop concepts for chiplet-based system partitioning by 2.5D packaging and 3D stacking
– Thermal and Power Management of 3D IC systems

– Develop, enhance, and maintain system-level power analysis methodologies and flows
– Specify mitigation for di/dt-induced voltage droop mitigation
– Analyze power characteristics of critical workloads
– Work with IP-teams on cycle-2-cycle HW power estimation methodology
– Voltage regulation for 3D IC systems

– Specify /select system PMIC and on-die voltage regulators

Required Skills and Experience:
– Domain expertise in SoC level low power design techniques and power management design

– 3D-IC timing sign-off

– Understanding of STA timing sign-off and ability to transfer to 2.5D and 3D systems
– Experience driving physical design EDA tools, design reference/sign-off flows in advanced process technologies, and EDA vendor engagement
– Understanding of advanced CMOS process, as well as 2.5D and 3D technologies

– Make good judgements on functionality, performance, and physical implementation trade-offs

“Nice To Have” Skills and Experience:
Understanding of fundamentals of CPU and compute system architecture
Awareness of underlying transistor-level characteristics
Experience with design and function of power converters and clock generators

Arm is an equal opportunity employer, committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal opportunities are available to all applicants and colleagues. We are a diverse organization of dedicated and innovative individuals, and don’t discriminate on the basis of any characteristic.
