Circuit Lead Engineer


  • Investigate, plan, and design and productize novel sub-threshold and near-threshold circuits and other related low power circuit techniques (e.g., adaptive body biasing, adaptive clock distributions, level shifters, customized standard cells, specialized memory structures, PDN modeling etc.).

  • Validate and refine low power circuit design techniques as part of a team that is building standard cells in advanced nodes (e.g., 12nm and beyond).

  • Work with product development teams (library characterization, Engineering, Architecture and Product Planning team) to rapidly deploy newly developed custom circuits and standard cells in products.

  • Develop and drive standard cell development activities for test and production chips owned by the Advanced Development team.

  • Maintain a relationship and collaborate with 3rd party CAD tool vendors and foundries during the development of new circuit design methodologies.


  • Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering or related discipline. Exceptional candidates with a Master’s degree with also be considered.

  • Experience in driving new standard cell circuit design concepts, modeling, simulation and layout optimization efforts to improve PPA.

  • Experience in developing low power custom circuits on advanced FinFET process nodes with Cadence tools and scripting languages.

  • Experience in developing new circuits and transitioning those to production is highly desirable.

  • Experience in library characterization flows, custom layout design, post-layout simulation would be an added advantage.
