Digital Physical Design Engineer (P&R)

Digital Physical Design Engineer (P&R)

The main role of the Digital Physical Design Engineer (P&R) is to perform and organize the digital physical design of IC’s.


Physical design of digital integrated circuits (place & route) following the internal design rules and quality regulations. Assumes full responsibility on the quality and accurateness of the back-end layouts.
• In close cooperation with analog layouters, digital designers and project leaders
• Organization of deliverables and timings of these deliverables to ensure high-quality and timely delivery of the digital and mixed-signal top-level layout
• Assembly of ASICs containing digital and analog parts, taking into account DFT
• Physical verification: LVS, DRC, ERC, antenna, IR drop, electro migration…
• Setup and maintain technology setup and tool flow for place & route and physical synthesis


You are a dynamic and highly motivated engineer with at least 3 years of experience in digital physical design, floor planning and P&R for multiple power-domains (UPF) and multiple clock-domains.
You use a script-based approach (TCL) to streamline the back-end flow.
You have experience with digital synthesis, logic equivalence checking, Static Timing Analysis and physical verification.
You are fluent in English, both written and spoken.
