Edgecortix Inc. is seeking a Hardware Design Engineer with proven RTL/logic and ASIC design expertise. If you have a strong desire to build state-of-the-art digital chips and systems join us and let's reshape the future of AI.

Your Role and Responsibilities:

Ideal candidates will have expertise in several of the following areas:

  • RTL Design and module-level verification of modules for Edgecortix inference accelerator IP.
  • Participate in synthesis, STA, and power estimation activities.
  • Propose and implement low-level micro-architectural optimizations for better area, power, and placeability/routability of design targeting specific tech processes, power, and area budgets.
  • Work closely with our architects to support architectural-level decisions providing expert feedback to ensure high design scalability.
  • Collaborate with our architects and compiler engineers to determine the best way of implementing new functionality and defining architectural specs.
  • Engage in system integration activities for SoC design using third-party IPs and integration tools.
  • Engage in IP-level and system-level verification and debugging activities using SystemVerilog and UVM.
  • Embrace high standards of engineering practices such as code reviews, technical documentation, propper testing process, continuous integration, and release engineering.

Desired Qualifications (ASIC)

  • Ability to write clean, readable, synthesizable RTL.
  • Familiarity with AXI, Avalon or similar protocol.
  • Experience in low power RTL design.
  • Experience in performing logic synthesis using Cadence or Synopsys tools.
  • Experience in writing timing constraints and power intent definitions.
  • Experience in optimizing design for timing.
  • Experience in using power analysis tools such as Joules or PowerPro.
  • Understanding of Physical Design issues.
  • Understanding of using fixed-point arithmetic for approximating floating-point computations.
  • Experience with verification using SystemVerilog and UVM.
  • Experience with DDR, PCI-E, MIPI CSI or other high speed protocols is a plus.
  • Decent scripting and automation skills using TCL, Python, and Make.
  • Basic programming skills in statically typed languages such as C++ or Java.
