Job Description for ASIC Design Engineer
An ASIC design engineer typically works within a team that is responsible for all aspects of design activities, including architecture definition, design specification, design flow development, logic design, and verification. ASIC is defined as “application-specific integrated circuit” and is an integrated circuit that is customized for a specific use, rather than for general use. The ASIC design engineer is typically responsible for designing and delivering large, complex ASIC designs, and they deliver efficient design methodology on industry-standard design tools.Read More...
To obtain this position, a person typically must at least possess a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or a related field; however, a master's degree is often preferred. An ASIC design engineer also should have several years of experience in ASIC design. It is often preferred that the individual has a diverse background in verification methodologies, and it is typically required that they have strong programming skills, as well as Verilog, SystemVerilog, object-oriented programming, C++, and logic simulation familiarity.
This position also requires a strong understanding of computer architecture, strong communication skills, and the ability to operate well in diverse environments, as this position is important in a variety of fields. The ASIC design engineer must be a team player and function effectively in a group setting; however, they should also be able to work independently with minimal supervision. These engineers should also be able to effectively adapt their skills to the given environment. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
