Rivos Power Design team is seeking highly motivated candidates to perform power design for the new high performance power efficient SOC designs. The role will be at the center of a state-of-the-art power design effort, interfacing with all disciplines and have a critical impact on getting products to market quickly. 

Responsibilities

    • Imagine yourself at the center of our design effort, collaborating with all fields, playing a strategic role. You will have the opportunity to integrate and come-up with new ideas, as well as work with a team of talented engineers. The main responsibility of this role is to drive the power modeling and optimization:
    • Work with architects to resolve interesting use-cases to simulate.
    • Provide power projection for the future projects based on analysis.
    • Create test cases within the design verification team’s environment.
    • Work with logic teams to determine the correct functionality or enhance functionality for power reduction.
    • Work with the Architecture and design team to model the power for use cases.
    • Work with CAD team and implementation team on the power estimate flow and regression.
    • Develop IP power model on new architecture design, providing power data for performance/power/area trade-offs.Work with multi-functional teams on improving power modeling.
    • Understand interactions of the product at the software and system level that impact power.

Requirements

    • Familiar with power simulation and modeling, hardware power simulation and analysis flow.
    • Familiarity with ASIC power analysis and optimization.
    • Familiarity with Verilog and SystemVerilog.
    • Familiarity with script writing in Python, Perl or Tcl.
    • Familiarity with power impact at architecture, logic design, and circuit levels.
    • Familiarity with silicon design flow and methodology.
    • Familiarity with power simulation and power optimization.
    • Silicon power measurement experience is a plus.
    • Excellent skills in problem solving, written and verbal communication, excellent organization skills, and highly self-motivated.
    • Ability to work well in a team and be productive under aggressive schedules.

Education and Experience

    • PhD, Master’s Degree or Bachelor’s Degree in EE, EECS or CS.
