Component Design Engineer

Job Description
As a member of the Library Technology Group in TMG/LTD/Advanced Design (AD), you will be at the vanguard of designing digital libraries (standard cells) on leading-edge Intel processes to meet density, performance, and power scaling goals of CPU and SoC products. AD serves as the design interface with the process development team, working out key design/process interactions for all new Intel processes. You will be responsible for pathfinding, benchmarking, design, validation and support of library collaterals.

Your responsibilities may include:

  • Work with process, device, and design teams to co-optimize the transistor characteristics and layout design rules to enable the design of new technology.
  • Define the circuit content that helps meet the performance, density, and power needs of the products.
  • Formulate and validate the reliability and RC conditions that meet the needs of the targeted library.
  • Deliver circuit and layout collaterals for the test chips and products and define methodologies that enable seamless usage of library collaterals by any design team (internal or external).
  • Enable automation for library collateral release without compromising library and release collateral quality.

This is an entry level position and compensation will be given accordingly.


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience listed below would be obtained through a combination of your school work/classes/research and/or relevant previous job and/or internship experiences.
