Samsung Display America Lab (SDAL) is looking for an experienced hardware architect to lead the lab’s hardware architecture group. The group is in charge of developing architecture spec for ICs developed within the lab for displays, and owns RTL design of various IPs included in the chips and FPGA prototypes. This is a hands on position with 20% management and 80% design responsibilities.

SDAL is an R&D lab with the mission of developing new technologies for deployment in mobile and TV displays. A critical step in the development cycle at SDAL is creating prototype systems that serve as proof of concept demonstration vehicles of the technology. Such prototype systems often incorporate SDAL proprietary ASICs or other forms of IP at their core.

The Hardware Architect group has a central role in architecting and implementing the prototype systems in collaboration with a team of analog design and software engineers. Some of the IPs supported by the team include high-speed interfaces, image compression IP, display pipeline, and proprietary display sensing and compensation algorithms.  

Specific responsibilities:

  • Develop architecture spec for ICs developed in the lab.
  • Architect prototype systems consisting of custom ASIC, FPGAs, and displays for proof of concept demonstrations.
  • Manage lab’s logic designers involved in various projects.
  • Hands on RTL development of display IP as needed.

 

Qualifications:

  • 7 years of industry experience or MSEE plus 12 years .
  • Hands on experience in the complete ASIC flow including RTL design, synthesis, timing analysis, place-and-route, and functional verification.
  • Experience is developing chip architecture documents.
  • Experience in system prototyping using FPGAs.
  • Knowledge of high-speed serial links or image compression IP is required.
  • Prior management experience is desirable, but not required. Extensive leadership experience is required.
  • Familiarity with display pipeline is desirable but not required.
