Achronix Semiconductor is a privately held fabless semiconductor corporation based in

Santa Clara, California. We design high-performance, low-power FPGAs using Intels


22nm and 14nm 3-D Tri-Gate process technology.
Achronix is currently shipping its 22nm HD1000 FPGA, making us the only customer of
Intels custom foundry program to ship product, as well as the FPGA industrys processtechnology leader.
The Core Technology team at Achronix owns the reconfigurable fabric (look-up tables,
routing, configuration memory, carry chains, register files, multipliers, etc.) for our
companys FPGAs. Members of our team participate in all phases of the FPGA productdevelopment cycle, from architecture conception to circuit design and implementation to
high-volume manufacturing. New employees will have the opportunity to contribute to all
of these phases and work with the worlds most advanced process technology.

Position Profile Name: Hardware Engineer


Type of Position: Regular, Exempt
Reports to: Vice President Hardware Engineering
Location: Santa Clara, CA

Job Description and Responsibilities
The employee will work on the design, implementation, and characterization of fullcustom, high-performance digital logic in 22nm and 14nm. The employee will work with
the design leads for multiple circuit blocks and work with him or her to do the following
(per circuit block):

Create a verification plan for the circuit


Execute against the verification plan (creating digital and analog tests)
Optimize the circuit for performance, power, and area
Collaborate with a mask designer and design lead to implement the circuit
Document the circuits behavior in an engineering specification
Drive the architecture of future products by providing feedback on the area,
power, and performance tradeoffs of different versions of the circuit
Automate a subset of the verification process for nightly regressions
Evaluate the post-silicon testability of the circuit and develop a post-silicon
testing plan
Validate in the lab that the circuit meets its specification

Skills and Qualifications:


Employee should be comfortable programming in a scripting language (e.g.,
Python or Perl).

Employee should have basic digital VLSI knowledge (e.g., a senior- or masterslevel VLSI course)
Employee should be comfortable reading and writing RTL (e.g., Verilog)
Employee should be extremely well organized and have excellent communication
skills
Familiarity with commercial CAD flows (LVS, DRC, simulation, etc.) is a plus
Familiarity with object-oriented programming concepts is a plus
Familiarity with revision-control systems (e.g., perforce, git) is a plus
Education: BS in electrical engineering or computer science + 1 year experience
