  • Job Description

    Amazon Lab126 is an inventive research and development company that designs and engineers high-profile consumer electronics. Lab126 began in 2004 as a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc., originally creating the best-selling Kindle family of products. Since then, we have produced groundbreaking devices like Fire tablets, Fire TV and Amazon Echo. What will you help us create?

    The Role:
    As a Senior RTL Design Engineer, you will be part of an advanced architecture team that is exploring new hardware designs to improve our devices. In this role, you will be responsible for defining the micro-architecture and implementing the corresponding RTL for advanced functional blocks. You will participate in the design verification and bring-up of such blocks by writing relevant assertions, debugging code, test benches, test harnesses, and otherwise interacting with the extended team. You are expected to lead, understand and debug system-level issues. You will do evaluations of new prototyping and emulation platforms from various vendors and architect/implement them to meet our needs. You will participate in the lab bring-up of these blocks either in an FPGA or silicon by potentially writing test scripts, analyzing lab data, proposing experiments, etc.

    You will work closely with multi-disciplinary groups including Product Design, Audio Technology, Computer Vision, Hardware Engineering, and Software Engineering, to architect and implement complex functional block that enable development of world-class hardware devices. In this role, you will:

    · Design world class hardware and software
    · Communicate and work with team members across multiple disciplines
    · Develop detailed design specifications and documentation
    · Perform RTL coding and synthesis
    · Work with Partners/Supplier to optimize and customize their products
    · Run industry standard code quality tools and fix issues found by them
    · Develop all aspects of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) implementation, including design partitioning, synthesis, place and route, timing analysis, IP integration, RTL simulation, timing closure and system level debugging.
    · Debug test failures on emulation and FPGA systems
    · Participate in test plan and coverage reviews

    The ideal candidate should have experience with RTL development environments, fluency in modern hardware description languages. They should have developed complex IP blocks from scratch that have successfully been integrated in SOCs or other such silicon that have been productized in consumer devices. They should be familiar with modern SoC architectures, various interconnect topologies such as AMBA AXI, APB, AHB, and implementations. Experience with I/O interfaces such as SPI, I2C, I2S, PDM, and MIPI CSI/DSI/Slimbus/Soundwire is also preferred. Experience with memory instantiation and memory compilers is also preferred. We are looking for a self-driven individual who can work with architects, HW and SW developers and can quickly resolve blocking issues.

    Basic Qualifications

    · Master's degree in Electrical/Computer Engineering or related field
    · 5+ years of RTL development experience with a record of taping out production silicon
    · 5+ years of Hardware Emulation Platforms and tools (EVE, Palladium, Protium, Veloce, and/or HAPS)
    · Experience working with 3rd party development projects
    · Experience with design development using Verilog/SystemVerilog
    · Experience with design verification, synthesis, timing/power analysis and DFT

    Preferred Qualifications

    · PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or related field
    · Experience with ARM and various DSP ISA
    · Experience debugging system-level issues
    · Experience in entire design flow from architecture to final silicon.
    · Good programming skills in C/C++ and scripting skills in Python, Tcl, and/or Perl
    · 10 years or more of practical experience
    · Experience with wide variety of low power design techniques
    · Working experience with high performance industry standard buses like AMBA AXI4
    · Experience in integrating third party IP blocks, building top level modules, defining clock domains and power domains
    · Large breadth of knowledge from architecture through physical design
    · Knowledge of FPGA and emulation platforms
    · Experience synthesizing designs to various FPGA and Silicon targets.
    · Knowledge of FPGA device architectures such as Xilinx or Altera and related tools
    · Knowledge of SoC architecture
    · Proficient with writing automation scripts
    · Excellent verbal and written communication skills
