Are you ready to join the team that is changing the way the world does chip design? Today’s chips and systems are becoming too complex to continue design with the traditional RTL design techniques so the industry is moving to a higher level of design abstraction using SystemC and High Level Synthesis.

The Stratus High Level Synthesis (HLS) product from Cadence synthesizes SystemC input models into high quality Verilog RTL based on a target technology library and user constraints. Stratus is already in production flows at many of the industry’s top semiconductor and systems companies.

In this role, you will be responsible for the design, implementation and maintenance of one of the many complex phases of the Stratus synthesis process. This includes implementing in C++ many modern algorithms, design and implementation of complex data structures and understanding the hardware implications of C++ synthesis.
