Layout Design Engineer
We are looking for an Layout Design Engineer – someone who is excited to join a growing group of diverse individuals responsible for handling challenging high-speed digital and analog circuit designs. 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 that are hard to solve, that only we can pursue, and that matter to the world. This is our life’s work, to amplify human creativity and intelligence.
What you'll be doing:
Execute IC layout of cutting edge, high-performance, high-speed CMOS integrated circuits in foundry CMOS process nodes in 3nm, 5nm, 7nm and lower nodes following industry best practices.
Deliver layouts for Circuit Solutions Group specializing in digital cum analog IPs.
IP layout will comprise of significant digital components and some analog components.
Adopting and putting in place best layout practices/methodology for composing Analog and digital layouts
Follow company procedures and practices for IC layout activities.
What we need to see:
2+ years of experience in high performance analog layout in advanced CMOS process.
BE/M-Tech in Electrical & Electronics or equivalent experience.
Thorough knowledge of industry standard EDA tools for Cadence and experience with layout of high-performance analog blocks such as Current mirrors, Sense Amps, bandgaps etc. is required.
Knowledge in analog design and layout guidelines, high speed IO, (matching devices, symmetrical layout, signal shielding, other analog specific guidelines)
Experience with floor planning, block level routing and macro level assembly.
Knowledge of high-performance analog layout techniques such as common centroid layout, matching, symmetrical layout, signal shielding, use of dummy devices, thermal aware layout with consideration for electro migration and other analog specific guidelines.
Demonstrated experience with analog layout for silicon chips in mass production.
Background with sub-micron design in foundry CMOS nodes 7nm finfet and below is preferred.
Experience working in distributed design team is a plus and requires self-starter with the ability to define and adhere to a schedule.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
