Job Description and RequirementsAt Synopsys, we’re at the heart of the innovations that change the way we work and play. Self-driving cars. Artificial Intelligence. The cloud. 5G. The Internet of Things. These breakthroughs are ushering in the Era of Smart Everything. And we’re powering it all with the world’s most advanced technologies for chip design and software security. If you share our passion for innovation, we want to meet you.
 
Our Silicon IP business is all about integrating more capabilities into an SoC-faster. We offer the world’s broadest portfolio of silicon IP-predesigned blocks of logic, memory, interfaces, analog, security, and embedded processors. All to help customers integrate more capabilities. Meet unique performance, power, and size requirements of their target applications. And get differentiated products to market quickly with reduced risk.
 

ASIC Digital Design Engineer
Seeking a highly motivated and innovative digital design engineer with knowledge of ASIC development flow. The candidate would be working as part of a highly experienced mixed-signal design and verification team, targeting the next generation NRZ and PAM-based SerDes products. Strong theoretical and practical background in high-speed serializer and data recovery circuits is a strong plus. The position offers an excellent opportunity to work with an expert team of digital and mixed-signal engineers responsible for delivering high-end mixed-signal designs from specification development to performing functional and performance tests on prototype test-chips.
 
The PHY IP development is very dynamic and provides an endless list of challenges. The candidate would have an initial training done by the top experts in the field as well as continuous on the job training and assignments. The work is very challenging, not only given the constant technological changes but also given the ownership and the need to charter unknown waters.
