NVIDIA has continuously reinvented itself over two decades. Our
invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming
market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized
parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern
AI - the next era of computing. NVIDIA is a "learning machine" that
constantly evolves by adapting to new opportunities which are hard
to solve, that only we can pursue, and that matter to the world.
This is our life's work, to amplify human inventiveness and
What you'll be doing:
You will drive physical design and timing of high-frequency and
low-power CPUs, GPUs, SoCs at block level, cluster level, and/or
full chip level.
- Help in driving frontend and backend implementation from RTL to
gds2, including synthesis, equivalence checking, floor-planning,
timing constraints, timing and power convergence, and ECO
What we need to see:
BS (or equivalent experience) in Electrical or Computer
Engineering with 5 years experience or MS (or equivalent
experience) with 2 years experience in Synthesis and Timing
Solid experience in full-chip/sub-chip Static Timing Analysis
(STA), timing constraints generation and management, and timing
Hands on experience in logic synthesis and equivalence
checking/FV required. Deep understanding of hardware architecture
and hands-on skills in RTL/logic design for timing closure.
Expertise in physical design and optimization e.g. placement,
routing, cell sizing, buffering, logic restructuring, etc. to
improve timing and power, along with a background in implementing
them through ECOs.
Understanding of DFT logic and hands-on experience in design
Expertise in analyzing and converging crosstalk delay, noise
glitch, and electrical/manufacturing rules in deep-sub micron
Knowledge in process variation effect modeling and experience in
design convergence taking into account variations.
Experience in critical path planning and crafting needed.
You'll need to have expertise and in-depth knowledge of industry
standard EDA tools.
- Proficiency in programming and scripting languages, such as,
Perl, Tcl, Make, Python, etc.
Ways to stand out from the crowd:
If you have a background in high-performance design, such as
CPU, implementation and timing convergence, this is a plus
Experience with DFT timing closure for various modes e.g. scan
shift and capture, transition faults, BIST, etc.
Knowledge in circuits, SPICE simulations, and/or transistor
- Experience in methodology and/or flow
