Design Engineer – Digital/SoC

Innatera is currently staffing its SoC design team which is spread across two locations – Delft, The Netherlands and Bangalore, India. The team is responsible for the architecture development and digital design of Innatera’s neuromorphic processor SoCs, which combine energy-efficient processing elements within a highly scalable, massively parallel compute array. The team is looking for multiple, experienced design engineers to work on the development of the digital architecture in Innatera’s upcoming SoCs.

Positions are available both at Delft, and in Bangalore.

In this role, you will be responsible for

  • Working collaboratively on the RTL design and architecture development of the high-performance digital fabric inside Innatera’s SoC products.
  • Specification, design, optimization, FPGA prototyping, and testing of multi-processor architectures, network-on-chip interconnects, memory hierarchies, and other digital components.
  • Semi-custom design, tape-out, and validation of the digital sub-systems.
  • Work together with analog-mixed signal design engineers to interface the digital sub-systems with Innatera’s neuromorphic compute elements.
  • Collaborate with a team of hardware architects, digital design engineers, and application engineers.
  • Contributing to the creation of IP (patents, knowhow) at Innatera.

The ideal candidate for this position

  • Has a PhD or MSc, with several years of relevant industrial experience in the semiconductor / SoC / processor / multiprocessor design fields
  • Is experienced in the RTL design, FPGA prototyping, and semi-custom VLSI design of complex digital SoCs
  • Is experienced with pre- and post-silicon validation
  • Experience with digital tapeouts is beneficial
  • Is a problem solver, has a goal-oriented attitude, and is highly-motivated
  • Is a self-starter, and is passionate about technology

Preferred skills for this position

  • Mentor Modelsim, Xilinx ISE/Vivado, Synopsys Design Compiler, Cadence Innovus
  • VHDL/Verilog, SystemC
  • C/C++
  • Python, Tcl,…
  • Computer architecture, processor/multiprocessor design, SoC
