Senior SOC and Testchip Validation Engineer
You will be part of the global ITVG (IP Testchip and Validation Group) group that is responsible to develop SOC Testchip for Hard IPs and Soft IPs on leading edge process nodes that powers Intel products across Client, Data Center, Networking, Graphics, AI and enabling Intel Foundry Customers. You will also be part of the cohesive and diverse team that is responsible to develop E2E Bootable SOC Testchip where you can directly apply your industry ASIC knowledge - ARM, AMBA protocols - CHI/AXI/AHB/APB, PCIE, DDR, UCIE on both SOC and subsystem verifications.
In this role, you will collaborate with SOC architects and design engineers to verify the design and performance of SoC projects, ensuring bug-free first silicon
As a key team member, you will also contribute to our verification methodology and own Verification Strategy for Block/Sub-system and SoC Test plans.
Develop and execute verification plans based on design specifications and collaboration with architects and designers.
Utilize constrained random verification, functional coverage, system Verilog assertions, code coverage and assertions to achieve goals.
Track and debug failures and work with designers to resolve them.
Assist with bring-up and debug of SoC Projects.
Candidate must have a Bachelor, Master or PhD Degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Microelectronics, VLSI or a related field with >8 years of ASIC pre-silicon design/verification.
Candidate must possess strong fundamentals in the following areas.
-Good understanding of SV, OVM, UVM and verification methodologies
-Experience in using verification tools such as VCS, DVE, Verdi etc
-AMBA Protocols - CHI/AXI/AHB/APB
-Scripting in Python, Perl, TCL
Have strong fundamental knowledge in DDR, PCIE, ARM AMBA Protocols, DMA, I2C, SPI
Working knowledge with X86/ARM cores.
Experience in Formal Verification is an added advantage.
Strong in problem-solving and debugging various simulation failures independently.
Strong written and oral communication skills able to communicate well with counterparts and key stakeholders including cross-site partners.
