Company Profile

Pulsic’s products and solutions are used to solve today’s most challenging IC design problems.

Pulsic’s Animate Design Solution is a revolutionary new automated Analog layout system that produces multiple, high quality, fully routed layouts in minutes from an OpenAccess schematic. Its novel and unique multithreaded PolyMorphic layout technology concurrently generates optimal layouts which can then be extracted to generate early parasitics to explore design options in a fraction of the time it would take manually.

The Pulsic Planning Solution is used for chip planning, bus/repeater planning, power planning and hierarchical signal planning in designing hierarchical custom digital, custom ASIC, FPGA, microprocessors, Memory, LCD/LED, or other ASSP designs.

Pulsic’s Implementation Solutions include the Pulsic Custom Placer and the Pulsic Custom Router. The Custom Router includesthe patented Unity Spine and Stitch Router, the most efficient and highest performance router for extreme aspect ratio designs, including DRAM, Flash memory, Imaging, LCD/LED , DSP and other non conventional aspect ratios.

Pulsic’s solutions also include extraction, signal integrity, STA and other features to deliver a complete back end physical design flow for custom digital, analog and mixed signal designs.

Pulsic solutions can be seamlessly incorporated into any flow because of its integration and interfaces to cdba, Open Access, LEF/DEF, Verilog, SDC, DSPF, .lib and other industry standard interfaces and library formats.

Current Job Openings



Position: Electronic Design Automation Software Engineer  – Newcastle, England

Have you ever looked at your smartphone and wondered how the silicon chips, that power it, were designed?  Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software is some of the most advanced and algorithmically complex in existence.

Pulsic is building the next generation of EDA tools, these tools enable IC designers to layout the very latest silicon chips. Working with massive complexity and intricate design rules demanded by sub 20nm IC designs.

At Pulsic our aim is to build exceptionally smart software that is stupidly easy to use. Great software has no options!

Creating software that “just” does the right thing with minimal guidance from the user is extremely technically and intellectually challenging, and we are looking for exceptional engineers to join us with this challenge.

Successful candidates will be deeply involved in the development and implementation of a new EDA technology with a strong focus on computational geometry, geometry manipulation and algorithmic complexity.

We are looking for a software engineer with a top degree (preferably MSc or PhD) and exceptional talent for algorithm development. Although advantageous, EDA experience is not essential.

The position would be ideal for an ambitious Software Engineer looking for a new challenge with a Mathematics or Computer Science PhD who has a proven and innovative approach to research and software development OR software engineers with relevant industry experience.

Position: EDA Software Engineer.

Competitive Compensation Program

Key Skills: Grade A or B in A-level mathematics, Russell Group science degree, algorithmic software development, excellent interpersonal communication skills.

Desirable skills: C/C++, QT, multi-threading, EDA development, Graph Theory, Network Theory, 2D Computational Geometry, Data-Structure Design, Complexity Theory.

Location: Newcastle upon Tyne

Holiday: 25 days
