Subject: compiler engineer, Synopsys, Inc., Mountain View, CA.

Position Available:
For a software engineer in the Compilers group at Synopsys, Inc.
in Mountain View, CA.

Job Description

Participate in creating the next generation of EDA (Electronic
Design Automation) tools that will help hardware designers in
designing million gate circuits. You will participate in an effort to
develop the second generation of compilers for Hardware Description
Languages (HDLs) such as Verilog and VHDL. You will be part of a
small, focussed group and will have an oppurtunity to influence the
architecture of the compilers. You will also interact with marketing
and customer support groups to understand customer needs and translate
them into product features.

(HDLs are languages IC designers use to design complex ICs. HDL
compilers synthesize electronic circuits (in terms of boolean gates)
to implement the functionality specified by the designer in the
high-level HDL. It is appropriate to think of boolean gates as the
'object code' of these compilers)


Experience developing and maintaining large software systems
such as compilers and database systems. Very good software
engineering skills and knowledge of C/C++. Ability to design and
develop extensible, maintainable software. Strong algorithm, data
structure, and debugging/analysis skills. Knowledge of VHDL/Verilog
languages and (hardware) logic design principles helpful.


MSCS/MSEE with 4+ years experience or relevant Ph.D. with 1+
years exprience. Fresh graduates are encouraged to apply for junior

About the Company:

Synopsys, based in Mountain View, California is a leading
supplier of electronic design automation tools that enable designers
to quickly and efficiently design complex circuits. For more details

Subject: Compiler job at SGS Thomson, Bristol, England

SGS Thomson looking for compiler developers based in its development
centre in Bristol, England to join a team developing compilers as part
of new microprocessor architecture designs. Compilers being developed
in tandem with the evolving architecture and opportunites exist to
contribute to the architecture design. Opportunities exist at both
Senior and Junior levels within a small team.

Work will involve significant travel within Europe and to the US.

Experience with code generation, optimization, C & C++ is
required. Specific experience with cross module optimization,
instruction scheduling and register allocation and other
classic optimization techniques is desired.

Experience with Java implementation would be a plus.

Please contact me for more information either by phone or e-mail.
