We are creating the future of brain-computer interfaces: building devices now that have the potential to help people with paralysis regain mobility and independence and invent new technologies that could expand our abilities, our community, and our world.
The Brain Interfaces system-on-chip Department delivers chip architecture and silicon implementation of neural recording and stimulation system-on-chip (SoC) for high-bandwidth brain-machine interface applications. We have crafted a team of exceptional engineers whose mission is to push the frontiers of what is possible today and define the future.
Job Responsibilities and Description:
Digital IC Design Engineer will be responsible for delivering micro-architecture and register-transfer level (RTL) implementation of digital IPs and systems with a focus in high-throughput low-power digital signal processing (DSP) and general-purpose hardware accelerators towards realizing state-of-the-art brain-computer interfaces. Relevant product development experience in micro-architecture design for low-power processors, on-chip bus and network interfaces, audio/video compression processors, AI/ML accelerators, and communication PHY/MAC will be preferred.
- Evidence of exceptional ability in electrical engineering, computer science, or computer engineering.
- 5+ years of experience in digital design.
- Expertise in SystemVerilog, C/C++, Python.
- Experience working on complex digital systems from architecture, microarchitecture, and RTL, using industry standard tools.
