Physical Verification

Roles and responsibilities

  • In a fast-paced leading-edge design environment with endless possibilities of innovation and learning , you will be responsible for ensuring flawless execution in specific areas of SoC level Physical Design such as Physical Verification, Tapeout, ESD Verification and Pre-emptive Quality audits of incoming designs
  • This is a great opportunity to join a team of talented individuals working on state-of-the art complex SoC Designs as part of Intel Foundry Design Services and Reference Design Development teams

The key skillsets need to include expertise in one or more areas of:

  • Integration and generation of layout and netlist views of different levels of hierarchy up to SoC.
  • Layout verification and signoff for IP blocks, APR partition and SoC levels of hierarchy.
  • Develop Tcl and Perl script automations to efficiently implement layout edits in APR designs.
  • Develop plans and implement audit of incoming layouts, thereby set minimum acceptable criteria.
  • Execute Structural Design health checks that can have bearing on layout quality.
  • Partner with design teams to build SoC DB that meets foundry requirements for Tape-outs.
  • Provide timely feedback to design teams on layout quality throughout design phase of a project.
  • Liaison with PDK, Tools, flow and Methodology teams along with other stakeholders to pre-empt issues and to be abreast of latest changes in foundry rules.
  • Effectively communicate with large numbers of design and layout engineers providing high quality documentation and presentations

The ideal candidate should exhibit behavioral traits that indicate:

  • Self-motivator with strong problem-solving skills
  • Strong leadership skills with ability to mentor junior engineers.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, including written and verbal communication.
  • Ability to work as part of a team and collaborate in a high-paced atmosphere.
  • Ability to influence design flows and methodology


  • Bachelors or Masters in Electrical or Electronics Engineering
  • 2+ years of experience in Physical Design and Verification or Design Implementation or Design automation.
  • Experience with APR or Custom layout implementation tools or Custom / APR tool flow methodologies.
  • Should have experience in either IP or SoC level layout design or backend sign-off process.
  • Good understanding of Layout Signoff requirements such as DRC, LVS, DFM and Reliability checks.
  • Experience with TCL or Perl programming
