SoC Low-Power Engineer (Entry Level) | NXP Semiconductor | Bangalore (Nagavara)

Job description:

NXP Semiconductor is conducting an interview for the post of SoC Low-Power Engineer.

Job duties and responsibilities:

As a member of the SoC (System-on-Chip) Low-Power Methodology team, you work on a wide range of SoCs spanning different process technologies [40nm-5nm and below] and market segments [IoT, Industrial, Automotive, Networking, Radar] to produce the best-in-class combination of power, performance, and thermal behavior.

NXP designs a very wide range of SoC solutions from very cost-sensitive, low-power devices to highly integrated, high-performance devices with a worldwide network of design centers. You will be engaging with NXP’s global design team in a highly visible position where strong verbal and written communication skills are a must.

Job requirements:

  • RTL / Netlist Power Estimation at IP and SOC level, using industry-standard EDA tools for power estimation
  • Hands-on experience in reporting dynamic/leakage power numbers, experience in checking clock gating efficiency, and power optimization techniques.
  • Ability to analyze power data and derive meaningful optimization opportunities from that data
  • Ability to develop UPF according to the Power Spec
  • Validation of UPF using Conformal Low Power tool at RTL and Gate Level
  • Working with Verification, Subsystem, and SOC to close UPF-related issues
  • Hands-on experience in the development of UPF at block / SOC level having multiple power domains
  • Hands-on experience in UPF validation using the Conformal Low Power tool
  • Good understanding of low-power implementation flow
  • Proficient in scripting languages (Tcl and Perl).
  • Ability to communicate effectively with multiple global cross-functional teams

Key challenges:

  • Analyse and identify the scope of power improvements at RTL / Synth / Implementation stage.
  • Generate high quality signoff power numbers to co-relate with silicon measurements
  • Create SOC and IP level power models for use case and system level power modelling
  • Deep dive into existing Ways of Working, identify bottlenecks, and creatively suggest improved Ways of Working

Qualifications required:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering.
  • Preferred: Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering.
  • Strong understanding of digital hardware design fundamentals, including device physics, circuit analysis, computer architecture, and memory usage at the circuit and system level Verilog / SystemVerilog and industry-standard frontend and backend Tools
