About the job
As a member of our CPU front end design team, you will participate in designing high performance power efficient processors. The emphasis is micro-architectural definition, RTL coding, unit level verification, synthesis and timing closure. You will work closely with functional verification and physical implementation teams.
Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our team combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware to create radically helpful experiences. We research, design, and develop new technologies and hardware to make computing faster, seamless, and more powerful. We aim to make people’s lives better through technology.
Provide CPU frontend designs, emphasizing on microarchitecture and RTL design for the next generation CPU.
Propose performance enhancing microarchitecture features with efficiency in mind. Work with architects and performance teams for trade-off studies. Communicate pros and cons of microarchitecture enhancements. Facilitate final decision making.
Deliver designs meeting PPA goals with production quality.
Become familiar with state-of-the-art techniques for at least one processor functional block. Interpret the techniques into design constructs and languages in order to provide guidance to and participate in the performance modeling effort.
Work closely with the functional verification team to ensure production quality designs, and with the physical design team to meet frequency, power, and area goals.
