Job Description
Software Engineer Position in Libero Place and Route, Hyderabad
The Microchip FPGA Software Engineering team delivers a comprehensive software suite for designing Microchip’s FPGAs and managing the entire design flow from entry, to synthesis, through place-and-route, timing, power analysis, and simulation. Within the Software organization, the Physical Design group is responsible for developing high-performance place, route, and physical synthesis software. Our placement and routing tools are distributed commercially to a wide range of customers and are used internally for the exploration of new FPGA architectures.
We research and implement sophisticated approaches for solving gigantic problems -- like finding high-quality placements for millions of movable modules, or routing circuits whose graph representations contain hundreds of millions of edges. To do this, we draw from a variety of computer science domains, including: numerical optimization, linear programming, Boolean satisfiability, stochastic search, graph theory, traffic routing, and computational geometry.
We have a position in the Physical and Logical Design group. As a key member of this R&D team, you will leverage your solid foundation in computer science to develop new placement, routing, and/or physical synthesis algorithms. You will be an important contributor to our team and to our company -- your work will become a vital component of our flow, and your discoveries will enrich the state of cutting-edge CAD research.
