  • BE/B.Tech./MS/M.Tech.(Electronics or Electronics & Communication)

Physical Design Engineer

  • knowledge of PD Flow from netlist to GDS  (Floorplanning, Synthesis, Power Planning, Placement & Optimization, CTS, Routing, ECO steps, Timing/SI)
  • Good idea about OCV/MMMC and multi power designs (Level shifters, Isolation cells etc)
  • Should have worked extensively on XTalk/SI/EM
  • Knowledge about CTS, Clock tree methodology and clock skewing.
  • Tool specific knowledge: ICC, innovus, primetime, DC, Genus depending on the background
  • Knowledge of DRC/LVS, IR Drop, Formal Verification and Synthesis.
  • Job would require complete ownership from netlist to GDS for blocks.
  • Should have worked on 28nm and lower technologies.
