Job Description

LSI is looking for a creative and self motivated Hardware Design Engineer to join the Flash Components Division in our San Jose office. This division develops flash controllers used in SSDs. A wide variety of customers is enjoyed by this division, to include Intel, Dell, and Apple.

This engineer will be responsible for designing and verifying functions that are pertinent to flash controller design. This will be reading through architecture specification documents, and expanding upon those ideas. These new ideas will be discussed with the architects, and the functions documented in a micro-architecture specification. Reviews of the document, and proper signoff, will be required.

From there, this engineer will code up the functions using Verilog format RTL. This RTL will be checked for accuracy to the desired function by running simulations against the design. Assertions may need to be inserted into the design to ensure no bad behavior is seen. As well, functional coverage may be written around the design to ensure particular functions are exersized.

The designer will also run lint and clock domain crossing tools to check the design for adherence to proper design techniques. The engineer will debug any failures, and check the code in once fixed.

The RTL designer will also run synthesis on the design from time to time to ensure the design that is being called out is implementable. Levels of logic will be checked, as well as whether the design area is in line with requirements.

The designer will also run power measurement tools on the design to ensure it meets the power specifications for that block of code. Understanding the RTL coding constructs that lend to a power sensitive design will be key for this person.

This engineer will be part of a bigger team that takes all the RTL coded functions, and puts them together to create the overall design. Teamwork and good inter-personal skills will be a must.
