Digital Physical Design Engineer (Place & Route)
Ottawa, Ontario, CA
41d ago

Position Overview

In this role, you will be working as a Physical Design Engineer (Place & Route ) in a team environment performing full-custom analog and mixed-

signal layout of next generation high-speed interfaces and signal integrity systems (aka SerDes, PHY, HSS, wireline transceivers, optical transceivers) in deep submicron FinFET technologies.

Multiple positions are available in Toronto or Ottawa Design Centers at different seniority levels depending on candidate qualifications.


You will be responsible for floor planning, and both block-level and top-level P&R of digital and mixed signal IC. You will put into action your solid understanding of advanced technologies and STA fundamentals to create high-

quality high-speed digital physical designs. You will utilize your strong experience in deep submicron CMOS and FinFET technologies.

You will be responsible for physical implementation from netlist to GDS of large, complex, high-performance CMOS chips, including PnR, timing analysis, PI / SI analysis, physical verification, DFR design and verification, DFM design and verification, physical design data delivery.
