We strive to lead the industry through continuous innovation and world-class engineering. We are looking for a Post-Silicon SoC Verification Architect to join our team.
In this position you will help us with the following responsibilities:
Develops and drives end-to-end SoC architecture including firmware, hardware, platform specifications for highly optimized, modular, and scalable SoC, based on hardware features, requirements, and interoperability of hardware and software throughout the product life cycle.
Drives SoC functionality, connectivity, configuration, performance, timing, power, and area goals.
Drives evaluation and integration of existing IP blocks into new SoCs as well as the specification of any gaskets or glue logic.
Evaluates feasibility trade-offs and explores and defines new approaches and novel architectures for SoC.
Invents, conceptualizes, and specifies microarchitecture and architectural features for next-generation products to deliver optimized SoC for multiple segments from high performance computing to extreme low-power products.
Develops tests, test plans, and testing infrastructure for new architectures/features for SoC, performs functional modeling simulations, and conducts analysis of test results using advanced statistics and data predictions for benchmarking performance and determining areas for improvement.
Provides experimental/proof-of-concept changes for proposing design alternatives meeting performance, power, area, and timing constraints.
Reviews, challenges, and influences cross-functional roadmaps and defines technology targets for future SoCs.
Collaborates with architects, design engineers, system engineers, and verification engineers to improve the overall design of SoC and overcome constraints.
You must possess the minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.
