Texas Instruments Incorporated Tucson , AZ 85704
As a global semiconductor company operating in 35 countries, Texas Instruments (TI) is first and foremost a reflection of its people. From the TIer who unveiled the first working integrated circuit in 1958 to the more than 30,000 TIers around the world today who design, manufacture and sell analog and embedded processing chips, we are problem-solvers collaborating to change the world through technology. Put your talent to work with us change the world, love your job!
As a digital design engineer you will develop digital IP to be combined with TI's industry leading analog technology to create cutting edge Sensing IC solutions. You will be a key team member from concept through product release and working closely with the top talent in the industry. You will architect and design the digital IP, be responsible for the RTL implementation, perform full chip and block level design verification, execute the full digital backend flow for various kinds of IC products for sensing applications like temperature, humidity, gas, current, magnetics, etc. You will collaborate with the full product development team to get your product into high volume applications.
This is a great opportunity to be part of an established team in Tucson, Arizona that's continuing to look for growth opportunities, working with worldwide leading customers and developing cutting edge solutions.
Some of your responsibilities will include, but will not be limited to:
Handling the complete digital design flow (frontend and backend)
Designing logic circuits with Verilog/System Verilog/VHDL for implementing FSMs, arithmetic for digital signal processing algorithms, communication interfaces, memory controllers, analog control for ADC's, DAC's and power management, internal test mode features, DFT, etc.
Developing HDL test benches and design models to be used in Verification.
Performing all steps in backend flow: Synthesis, Place and Route, Post-Timing Analysis, ATPG etc.
Simulating behavior/RTL/gate level designs
Designing for testability using ad-hoc / Full scan / Memory BIST and generating functional and production test vector for performing Scan Testing
Discussing specifications with our System Engineers and translating these into design requirements
Providing high-level analysis on chip architecture trade-offs to ensure spec compliance and superior performance at a competitive cost
Working with and providing guidance to physical designers and monitoring the progress of IC layout
Working closely with test and product engineers to ensure that design-for-test standards are considered up-front
Collaborate closely with analog designers to define together the needed functionality and behavior.
Maintain and extend digital flow and evaluate new tools in close collaboration with the EDA
Participating in design reviews and creating the necessary design and product documentation
Characterizing prototypes, developing test specifications and coordinating with test/product engineering to drive product releases
Demonstrated strong analytical and problem solving skills
Familiar with IC design tools, preferably Cadence's Virtuoso design environment including creating schematics, reviewing layout, setting up and running top-level mixed signal simulations (AMS, Ultraism or TIspiceVerilog).
Strong verbal and written communication skills
Ability to work in teams and collaborate effectively with people in different functions
Strong time management skills that enable on-time project delivery
Ability to work effectively in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment
Ability to take the initiative and drive for results
