SatixFy's Careers

Physical Design Engineer

Job Description:

Be part of a dynamic and motivated multi-national Physical Design team, taking part in developing a state of the art Satellite SoC through the full life cycle: design to production. The chips include complex digital and analog modules. Some of the products are part of the next generation radiation hardened satellite modems. You will have access to best in class EDA design tools and will be working in leading edge process technologies.

  • Physical implementation of complex SoC, VLSI devices and Test Chips, integrating custom designs and 3rd party IP (Hard, Soft, IO, CPUs, DSPs, etc)
  • Full block level timing closure and manufacturing checks signoff including power planning and analysis
  • Working alongside the Logic Design RTL team to develop timing constraints for implementation at block and chip level
  • Insertion of DFT test structures and chip level integration, capture and simulation
  • Jointly with management, build your career development and growth opportunities.

Required Skills:

  • COT/ASIC physical design flow covering: Synthesis, Floorplanning, Place and Route (P&R), Clock Tree Synthesis (CTS), Parasitic Extraction, Static Timing Analysis (STA) and Timing Closure, Physical Verification, Power Analysis, Formal Verification, DFT/DFM and ATPG insertion/pattern generation
  • Deep sub-micron (28nm or below) process technologies
  • Industry standard design processes for deep sub-micron designs
  • Problem-solving and analytical skills
  • Practical use of scripting languages Tcl/Python/Perl etc
  • Experience of at least one of the following EDA tool flows: Cadence or Synopsys
  • Communicating with other design teams, 3rd party IP and library suppliers and EDA tool vendors to improve scripts and tool flow
  • Managing/Interfacing to sub-contract design service providers


At least Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or related field from a major academic institute.
