Signal and Power Integrity Engineer

Cerebras is developing the world’s first wafer-scale system. Since it was revealed in 2019, the CS-1 has continued to get favorable coverage from news outlets ranging from the Wall Street Journal to Anandtech. Further, one of our customers, Argonne National Labs, recently started applying the CS-1 to Covid-19 research. It is quite rewarding to be part of a team that works on state-of-the technology that can be applied to such an important problem.

The CS-1 is built from the ground up to accelerate deep learning in the data center. It is a complete solution for artificial intelligence compute powered by the Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine. It is programmable with the Cerebras software platform and package in an innovative system that fits directly into existing infrastructure.

Our system team is experienced and innovative. They think far outside of the box, which inevitably leads to new mechanical, thermal, and electrical challenges: nobody in the world has direct experience with our system bringup. We are therefore looking for an extraordinary individual with an outstanding track record for solving problems.

As a senior member of the system team you will:

  • The candidate should have hands-on experience with CAD simulation tools and lab equipment to work on
    • High-speed serial and parallel interfaces in a PCB design
    • Run transient simulation in package, board, and system level
    • Perform serdes simulation using IBIS-AMI models
    • Drive power integrity simulations (pre and post layout) including DC, AC, transient, and thermal analysis
    • Work closely with the PCB layout engineer to define constraints and design rules and review the artwork
  • Experience in
    • SSO analysis
    • HSPICE simulation
    • board level thermal simulations using Icepak
    • package design and package level simulations is a plus
  • CAD Tools
    • ANSYS HFSS, ANSYS Q3D, ANSYS SIwave, ANSYS Circuit, Keysight ADS, Cadence PowerSI, Cadence PowerDC, Cadence Allegro PCB Editor
  • Lab Equipment
    • VNA, TDR, Spectrum Analyzer, Oscilloscope, probing station
