We're looking for a Software QA Test Engineer to join our team in Cairo, Egypt.

The Calibre xRC tool provides robust parasitic extraction that delivers accurate parasitic data for comprehensive and accurate post-layout analysis and simulation. A rule-based extraction tool reads a design layout using a two-dimensional description of the design’s physical shapes (e.g., GDSII). It then identifies patterns in the layout that match a predefined set of models in the extraction rules, performs the calculations by substituting in the actual design dimensions, and writes an extracted netlist that includes the design circuit and its extracted parasitic components. This extracted netlist is used by SPICE circuit simulators and static timing analysis (STA) tools, and those results, in turn, are used to adjust or modify the design to obtain the desired performance and/or eliminate any operational issues.
