Job Description:

We are seeking an experienced Sr. Staff Design Engineer - Microarchitect. In this role you will be responsible for leading and owning RTL development of one or more modules of a high-performance CPU core. This position will be responsible for all aspects of the design including Performance, Power, and Area.You will:

  • Drive the micro-architecture and design of a critical CPU block or multiple blocks of a CPU core
  • Explore high-performance strategies working with the CPU modeling team
  • Perform Microarchitecture development and specification- from early high-level architectural exploration, through microarchitectural research and arrive at detailed specifications
  • Configure Design Features Development, assessment, and refinement of RTL design to target power, performance, area, and timing goals
  • Perform Functional verification support and assist in the design verification strategy
  • Assist with the verification of RTL design performance goals
  • Partner with a multi-functional engineering team to implement and validate physical design aspects of timing, area, reliability, testability, and powerIdeally, you'll have:
    • Hands-on working knowledge of the pipeline stages of an in-order or out-of-order high-performance CPU core is required
    • Thorough knowledge of microprocessor architecture including expertise in one or more of the following areas:Instruction fetch and decode, branch predictionInstruction scheduling and register renamingOut-of-order executionInteger and Floating-point executionLoad/Store execution, prefetchingCache and memory subsystems
