May 26, 2023

  • Job
    Entry Level / Graduate
  • Design
  • Cambridge


  • Previous exposure to complex IP design
  • Understanding of implementing modern design techniques.
  • Exposure to energy-efficient & low-power logic design.
  • Understanding of logic optimisation, synthesis, timing analysis.
  • Fluency with RTL Verilog/VHDL syntax and hardware modelling.
  • Familiarity with logic simulation and debug environments as well as formal verification.
  • Ability to work well in a team and be productive under tight schedules.
  • Excellent communications skills, self-motivated and well-organised.
  • Education & Experience
  • BSc/MSc/BEng/MEng/PhD in related fields.
  • Additional Requirements
  • Some international travel is required.


  • You will work closely with other designers to refine GPU micro-architectural specifications as well as collaborate with the architecture, physical design & verification teams to identify potential issues as early as possible. 
  • You will implement the micro-architecture, targeting cutting-edge technology nodes, balancing energy efficiency, performance and area constraints with project schedule, maintainability and coding elegance. 
  • You will review synthesis and power reports, root-cause and resolve timing and power issues and ensure maximal QoR throughout your design. 
  • As your design approaches functional completion, your task will be to work closely with the verification team to ensure the design behaves as intended and is tested thoroughly. 
  • At this point, there will be ongoing collaboration with the physical design team to help with any adjustments necessary to produce an optimal layout of the design, in its context. 
  • Once your design is integrated into the system as a whole, you will be simulating and debugging issues both within and around your design.
