Job Responsibilities
At the beginning of new module research, IC design engineers and R&D engineers would cooperate closely with customers. Therefore, once the new module technologies are developed, we could accomplish the goal of massive production and have customers’ new product launch in a short time. 

In TSMC, you could be exposed to the most advanced module technologies, provide solutions to partners in global IC design eco-system, and ensure the competitiveness in power, performance, and area. 

【Physical Designer】 

The principal responsibility of the candidate is to perform complete netlist to GDS physical design steps, which include floor plan, PNR, timing closure, IR/EM analysis, layout verification, formal verification, and other tape out related tasks. Candidate will work in a talented team to design advanced chips, using cutting-edge process nodes while meeting high standard design requirements. 

【Standard Cell Engineer】

1. Path finding of library characterization for leading-edge technology nodes
2. Support industrial standard library kits generation and QC
