Job Description

Position : IC Digital Design Engineer

To support the design of next-generation SoCs in positioning and cellular applications, u-blox Athens is looking for a passionate and talented engineer, interested in digital IC design with experience in Design-for-Test.

To work in u-blox IC team you need to be creative, innovative, enthusiastic about new technologies, and striving for excellence.

The ideal candidate will start working on real project tasks in close collaboration with other teams. Through teamwork, training and dedication to personal development, u-blox goal is that every engineer quickly learns about different aspects of designing complex SoCs, starts contributing to various project tasks, and finally develops into an expert in the field.

Key responsibilities of a digital IC engineer will be to contribute / drive the requirements and specification analysis phase, the micro-architectural definition, the digital design (RTL), definition and integration of DfT architecture, as well as, performing scan-insertion, and pattern generation and debugging.

The engineer should work with the rest of the design, verification and DfT teams to meet the targeted specifications.


  • Involved in the entire design process of key IPs, including RTL design, top-level integration, verification, synthesis, Lint / CDC violations checking, etc
  • Contribute to the requirements / specification analysis and micro-architectural definition
  • Perform power analysis and propose design optimizations (area, timing, power)
  • Writing-up DfT specifications
  • Design / Integrate DfT structures as required
  • Responsible for SCAN insertion and pattern generation
  • Writing DfT related SDC constraints
  • Support failure analysis
  • Support test-program development
  • Perform test planning, verification coverage analysis and performance evaluation
  • Full IP verification using testbench based testing and coverage-driven verification techniques
  • Contribute to the IP top-level integration and FPGA prototyping for early IP testing at top-level
  • IP API development for testing purposes (SoC-level simulation, FPGA, silicon testing)
  • Utilize and evolve u-blox digital IC and FPGA flows
  • Plan, track, and report for the key IP activities
  • Responsible for technical documentation and reports (English language)
  • Patent creation
  • Qualifications

  • PhD / MS or BS in Electrical, Electronic, Computing Engineering or equivalent experience
  • 3+ years of industrial experience in digital IC, ideally with focus on Design-for-Test
  • Excellent in logic design including algorithmic-based optimization, from power, performance and area perspective
  • Experience in DfT : knowledge about industrial standards and practices in DfT, including ATPG, JTAG, MBIST, LBIST and trade-offs between test quality and test time
  • Experience in debugging ATPG patterns, Compressed ATPG patterns, MBIST, LBIST and JTAG related issues
  • Experience with STA constraints development and analysis for DfT modes and SDF simulations
  • Experience with top-level synthesis
  • Experience in cross interaction with DfT and physical design team
  • Familiarization with lab equipment and procedures for silicon testing
  • Experience in design of multiple clock and power domain architectures
  • Experience in efficiently porting top-level RTL in FPGA and achieving timing-closure
  • Familiar with Unix / Linux environment, shell programming, revision control systems and scripting (C-shell, Tcl, Perl, Python)
  • Strive for innovation and adoption of leading edge solutions
  • Previous experience in working with teams while capable of working independently and precisely
