What does a Design Engineer do?
ASIC design engineers develop and execute plans to integrate and operate ASIC systems. They design and implement architecture and processing systems, and configure and oversee optimization and testing processes. These engineers often take responsibility for full chip design and integration. They may create detailed design specifications and then supervise the development and evolution of those plans based on input from end users and other stakeholders. They perform a variety of related tasks including logic synthetization and verification.
ASIC design engineers have at least a bachelor’s degree in an engineering or science field, although employers frequently seek candidates with an advanced degree. They must have an advanced understanding of ASIC design and general computer architecture, and be able to write detailed design specifications. Other related computer skills, such as a broad range of computer programming and coding abilities, are advantages.
