Senior Physical Design Engineer (Praha, Brno)

Are you experienced digital backend engineer with ambition to participate on development of state-of-the-art designs?  Are you ready for challenges of ultra-low power, low voltage integrated circuits for battery-operated and field-powered applications?

If so, our company would like to offer you the opportunity to be part of our digital and mixed-signal design team.

EM Microelectronic is one of the most innovative IC providers. It developed and manufactured the smallest and the lowest power consuming Bluetooth chip on the market, the top performing optical sensors for optical mice for office as well as gaming  and it was the first to release the award-winning world-first dual-frequency NFC + RAIN RFID em|echo.

You will have the opportunity to work on the true ultra-low power designs.

As part of our digital/mixed-signal design team, you would be responsible for:

  • definition of the physical constraints of implemented block
  • update and correction of timing constraints (provide feedback to designers)
  • floorplan construction, power plan creation, logic placement
  • clock tree synthesis, routing optimization
  • timing optimization and static timing analysis
  • power consumption and IR drop analysis
  • physical verification (DRC, LVS)
  • Engineering Change Orders (ECO) implementation
  • communication with EDA and tool vendors to fix bugs, suggest enhancements
  • development of internal back-end environment
  • understand overall device system and functionality
  • make reviews of logic block and/or flows designed by others

We have following requirements for this position:

  • at least 5 years experience with digital back-end tasks
  • experience of all IC place & route steps from floorplanning to physical verification
  • experience of Static Timing Analysis (STA)
  • experience with multi-level domain digital design (UPF definition)
  • knowledge of TCL or Perl/Pyhton scripting
  • visa and residence permit in the Czech Republic for the purpose of employment
  • written and spoken English
