Ventana combines RISC-V with chiplet technology

Ventana Micro Systems is at the forefront of the two hottest trends that are revolutionizing the semiconductor industry: RISC-V and Chiplet Architecture. Check out our CEO talking with global tech analyst Patrick Moorhead about how Ventana combines the extensibility of RISC-V with chiplet technology to create customer-driven innovation for best-in-class solutions for the data center.

Ventana is well-funded and backed by some of the largest strategic investors in the industry with the goal of building best-in-class CPU cores for cloud, enterprise, 5G, and Edge computing. We invite you to join the revolution and contribute to one of the Hottest Semiconductor startups in the industry.

Processor Performance Engineer will be tasked to:

Critically review Design Specifications
Refine Performance Modeling infrastructure and near cycle accurate models
Define (and develop as necessary) applications, benchmarks, and micro-benchmarks on which to measure performance
Analyze and verify important performance characteristics at multiple levels of simulation, as well as with prototyping platforms and silicon. Track results over time and quickly identify unexpected regressions.
Work with Core and Noncore Architects and the RTL Design team to pinpoint performance opportunities and develop approaches to address them
Help specify performance monitoring hardware support
Collaborate with our Software team on:

Characterization and optimization of key software libraries and middle-ware (e.g. JVM)
Compiler/toolchain optimization/tuning guidelines for our microarchitecture
Application-level workload characterization/optimization
Qualifications Required:

In Depth understanding of both the RISC-V ISA and our Core and Subsystem microarchitecture
Recently responsibility for microarchitecture/design or a combination of performance modeling, analysis, validation, and correlation for high performance CPU or GPU, memory subsystem, or related system-level designs
Domain expertise in computer architecture concepts
Ability to work independently and across geographies, with a strong passion for developing excellent products
Bachelors or Masters degree in a related engineering field
Skills Desired:

C/C++/System-C modeling of near cycle accurate simulators
Industry experience with CPU microarchitecture (e.g. ISAs including: x86, ARM, SPARC, MIPS, RISC-V, POWER) and/or coherent caching systems.
Working knowledge of compiler technology and optimization techniques
Verilog/ SystemVerilog development experience
Experience in compiled and/or interpreted (Python, perl) languages, especially with respect to processing large, complex data sets and extracting meaningful information

Salary Range – $115k to $268k
