Daniel McGarrell

Digital Design Engineer

Enigma People Solutions is recruiting an experienced Digital Design Engineer for a fun, fast growing, real world technology design company that specialises in the design of customized ICs. Our brilliant high growth client is recognised for their independent and uniquely flexible approach and sets out to bring the benefits of custom design to the users of microcontrollers in order to build chips that are perfectly optimized for each individual application.

In this position, the IC Engineer is responsible
for managing and executing all activities associated with design, integration,
verification and maintenance of digital IPs integrated in IC used in the area
of embedded microcontroller based system solutions. The IC design
responsibilities will include building digital components based on customer
application specific requirements or IP standards and support the team to
complete the design including top level integration, physical design support
(constraints and gate level verification). Finally the engineer must be able to
validate and debug the IP on silicon.

The job duties include:
  • Work closely with the architecture team to review specifications
    and architecture to optimize the design implementation.

  • Write RTL to implement digital IP based on a design

  • Write implementation document of the digital IP.
  • Develop block level test bench, test cases, reference model
    and coverage model to check basic functionality of the design.

  • Work in integration of digital IP at the chip level.
  • Run RTL and gate level functional verification, debug
    failures, manage bug tracking, and analyze and close coverage.

  • Run synthesis and STA of the digital IP. Work with
    Synthesis/PnR engineer to solve issues related to the digital IP physical

  • Work with FW engineer for the integration of the digital IP
    functionality at the system level in the application.

  • Support application engineer in the debug of the digital IP
    on the silicon.



  • Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering
  • At least 2 years of digital design experience
  • Develop RTL (Verilog), timing constraints, and detailed

  • Support synthesis, STA, and logic equivalency checks.
    Implement ECOs.

  • RTL & gate level simulations.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of designing digital blocks using
    Verilog code.

  • Demonstrated knowledge in CPU architecture (preferably
    ARM), communications peripherals, multi-domain clocking, bus and interconnect
    structures and power management.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of digital circuit simulation tools
    and front end environments, particularly Cadence based.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of lab equipment tools such a logic
    analyzer, in particular demonstrate proficiency working with USB standard based

  • Demonstrated Knowledge of silicon process technologies and
    its associated library kits

  • Demonstrated knowledge of revision control systems
  • Programming in ruby, python, perl languages
  • Excellent communication

  • Report progress to the
    team leader on a regular basis.
