Job Overview:
Are you passionate about shaping the future of chip design? In the Solutions Engineering group at Arm, we offer the outstanding opportunity for an experienced
Power Analysis Engineer
to join our successful team in a dynamic and diverse role!
Arm is establishing a team to develop best-in-class silicon platforms based on Arm’s IP Compute Subsystem solutions, addressing markets such as premium mobile, infrastructure, and automotive. Arm’s ambition is to demonstrate efficient performance by architecting, designing, implementing, and fabricating pioneering silicon test chips using the latest SoC process nodes and packaging technologies.
This is an exciting and unique initiative, where we are driving how the next generation of leading compute devices are built across the industry. Join Arm to be part of the solution!
You will join a highly focused group where we analyse and optimise the power of our next generation compute solutions using innovative technologies, methodologies and tools.
Analyse the power efficiency of SoC design features from early estimation to final product validation.
Developing and running RTL simulator and emulator based workloads to analyse the power of the hardware design.
Taking pre-silicon design power measurements throughout the SoC development cycle from early modelling, RTL analysis, to in-depth timing annotated netlist analysis.
Analysis engineers collaborate with multiple teams from SoC Architecture, Performance Analysis, Microarchitecture Design, to Physical design to develop and analyse real software use-cases and the physical hardware.
Building relevant metrics along with visualisation to demonstrate the hardware power signature and capabilities of the compute subsystems.
Reviewing the quality and accuracy of data produced by the latest EDA power analysis tool flows.
Continuously innovating by improving the power analysis methodologies used by the team.
Required Skills and Experience :
We are seeking experienced engineers for a multi-disciplinary role in power analysis. Ideal candidates have past experience in power analysis or are motivated engineers with valuable transferable skills from design, implementation, or verification backgrounds.
Skilled in performing power modelling or pre-silicon power analysis flows.
Experience with low power design features and techniques, including clock and power gating, voltage/frequency scaling, memory/logic retention.
Ability to understand and balance trade-offs between power, performance, and area.
Familiar with developing RTL using Verilog, System Verilog, or VHDL.
Knowledge of Physical Implementation flow from RTL through Synthesis, Place & Route to STA.
“Nice To Have” Skills and Experience :
A background in development based on Arm processor based SoC system designs.
Development or analysis of CPU or Graphics benchmarks for PPA analysis.
Experience using tools for power analysis, power delivery and signoff. (e.g. PowerPro, PrimePower, Redhawk, etc)
Background in running simulation/emulation tools. (e.g. VCS, Questasim, Incisive, Veloce Strato, Palladium, Zebu, etc)
Good understanding of the concepts and tools related to synthesis, place & route, clock tree synthesis, constraint development, timing closure. (e.g. Innovus, Tempus, etc)
In Return:
You will influence the direction of our SoC developments and Compute Subsystem product lines, learn about the latest SoC power saving technologies, utilise your engineering skills to analyse and influence optimisations for innovative SoCs. You will be able to drive new engineering practices and methodologies and bring your ideas to a wider group, build your technical leadership and influencing skills and build towards becoming an established and recognised expert within the existing team.
