About the Role
As a Layout Design Engineer at TSS you will be working closely with both our digital and analog teams to create extraordinary AMS designs. The right candidate will thrive in a fast-paced environment working on various levels of the design with endless learning opportunities.
Work closely with schematic design team to do complex layout for mixed signal and analog circuits
Work closely with digital place and route team to ensure full custom layout can be integrated
Floorplan of high-speed IPs and IOs such as CDR, RX, TX, GPIOs etc.
Deliver clean layout views to internal and external customers
Debug and fix LVS,DRC,ERC etc
Ensure layout meets reliability and spec requirements (PEX, EM, IR, Self-heating, PERC)
Propose and implement layout design flow improvements as needed
Typically requires 2+ years of experience in analog/mixed-signal layout design of deep SubMicron CMOS circuits (28nm and below preferred).
Experience dealing with and generating different Physical views (LEF, GDS, DEF etc).
Experience building layout with stringent matching, speed, area and power requirements
Experience with custom and standard cell-based floor planning and hierarchical layout assembly.
Great understanding of IR drop, RC delay, electro-migration, self-heating and cross capacitance.
High-level proficiency in interpretation of DRC, ERC, LVS, etc. reports.
Knowledge of industry leading layout tools (Virtuoso, Custom Compiler or similar).
Scripting/flow automation experience in PERL, PYTHON or SKILL is a plus, but not required.
Experience with layout of SerDes IP such as TX, RX, PLL is a plus
