Title: ASIC Design Engineer
Company: Hewlett-Packard Company
Contact: John Bockhaus <john.bockhaus@xxxxxx> 
Hiring for: Full-time  
Description:
At Hewlett-Packard, we invent new technologies, change markets, and
create business opportunities.  Teamwork, initiative, innovation and
appropriate risk-taking are emphasized by this highly motivated and
successful design team.  We help plan and broaden the company strategy
and deliver the science and technology that gives HP leadership in the
industry.  As members of the Systems VLSI Lab (SVL), we design the
chipsets that power HPâ??s high performance computing systems, including
HPâ??s flagship server: the 64-socket Superdome.  SVL has sites in Fort
Collins, CO and Irving, TX.  We have three types of jobs that we are
interviewing for.

Logic Design is a fundamental part of computer hardware development in
SVL.  The logic design team is responsible for writing RTL (Verilog) and
creating algorithms which implement the chipset architecture.  The team
consists of hardware and software engineers with an in-depth knowledge
of logic design, computer architecture, systems design, and software
development practices.

Design Verification is an important part of computer hardware
development in SVL.  The design verification team is responsible for
ensuring that new high-end chipset designs are free from functional
defects prior to fabrication. The team consists of hardware and software
engineers with an in-depth knowledge of computer architecture, systems
design, and software development practices and methodologies.

Physical Design is an important part of computer hardware development in
SVL.  The physical design team is responsible for the circuit design,
place and route, and static timing analysis of the chipset ASICs.  The
team consists of persons strong in both automated and custom circuit
design methodologies.  We leverage industry standard tools where
appropriate and invent new methodologies to meet the pressing demands of
todayâ??s cutting edge ASICs.
