Who are we:
  • POP Implementation team part of Physical Design Group(PDG) at Arm Bangalore.
  • POP team is an experience to see the bigger picture of technical, business and problem solving aspects through the journey of building Arm CPU, GPU, NPU and Interconnect implementations. So what are the aspects we touch upon a daily basis?
  • Physical implementation of Arm’s latest CPU, GPU, NPU and Interconnect IP.
  • Exposure to advanced and mainstream technology nodes(3nm/5nm/7nm/12nm/22nm) being driven by multiple foundries.
  • Path-finding for Performance, Power and Area(PPA) metrics using varied recipes along with backend closure that’s representative of a tape-out.
  • Implementation flow and PPA tuning across multiple vendor based EDA flows in parallel.
  • Collaborating with Arm sales, marketing and end customers to refine the physical IP and implementation products.
  • Contribute in brainstorming ideas, approaches and recipes on all products being designed in the team.
  • Learn the intricacies of supporting products across different market segments like Client, Infrastructure, Automotive, IOT and Machine Learning.
  • Celebrate with the team to rejuvenate the mind and spirit for accomplishing greater things in future.
What you'll be doing:
  • You will be expected to build implementations of Arm CPU/GPU class designs using Arm’s optimized physical IP.
  • You will need to setup RTL, integrate memory models, create floorplans, setup synthesis / P&R flow and complete backend closure.
  • The primary objective would be to optimize performance, power and area as required by the Arm IP and the associated market segment.
  • In terms of backend closure, you will need to take the design through STA, EM, IR drop, signoff DRC and other types of verification steps.
  • You will also need to work on lighter aspects related to DFT(scan insertion, compression and ATPG) and setup Gate-level simulations to report power.
  • Your daily job will demand a lot of handshaking with physical IP teams who are responsible for “optimized” standard cell and memories.
  • You will also need to work with EDA partners in an independent manner to create and deploy recipes related to EDA tools.
  • You will see exposure to sales, marketing and licensing teams at Arm.
  • You will also be interacting with end customers directly to help them in usage of POP IP through the complete customer product tape-out cycle.
  • You will be expected to drive a lot of knowledge sharing sessions with wider audiences.
Qualification & Experience
  • BE/BTECH/MTECH with 4 to 5 years of minimum experience in Physical Design domain.
  • A star that believes in making the whole constellation brighter rather than shining all alone. We are only about “We” and not “I”.
  • Values communication as a key medium to nurture learning, builds trust with others and solves complex problems with dependencies.
  • Strong understanding in the RTL2GDSII flow for leading or mainstream process technologies.
  • Good understanding of the concepts related to synthesis, place & route, CTS, timing convergence, IR/EM checks and signoff DRC/LVS closure.
  • Any implementation experience on Arm CPU and GPU IP designs would be very useful.
  • Expertise on optimizing for cost functions like performance, power and/or area is like gold dust.
  • High-level know-how related to foundation IPs like standard cells and memories fits well with our work.
  • Working experience with tools like DC/Genus, ICC2/Innovus,Primetime/Tempus etc used in the RTL2GDSII implementation.
  • Good automation skills in PERL, TCL and EDA tool specific scripting can be impactful.
