We, VCN (Video Codec Next) IP team is based in Markham, ON, Canada.  We focus on video codec IP development for AMD SOCs with leading ASIC technology. We are looking for self-motivated, MTS level ASIC design verification engineer located in GTA area to join the verification team to develop world class video solutions.

The Person:

You are required to proactively reach out to different functional team members to understand the design requirement and drive block level verification, IP level bring-up and verification, code coverage and functional coverage closure throughout the design cycle. Solid technical skill, self-driven attitude, and excellent communication skill especially remotely are key factors to make you successful in this organization.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Draft block level test plan and functional coverage specification.
  • Construct block level test bench in UVM.
  • Drive and implement block level tests. Manage sanity suite and regression suite with throughput and coverage trade-offs.
  • Triage failures and provide support to design engineers to isolate the problems.
  • Actively drive simulation throughput profiling to use latest simulation technology to shorten the regression turnaround time.
  • Own verification of the design in different views, including C-model simulation, RTL simulation and formal verification.
  • Ensure design can meet performance target with accurate modeling of BFM/UVC behavior in the block level test bench to be aligned with IP level behavior with top down constraints.
  • Drive and own code coverage report, coverage profiling, coverage review and add new tests for coverage improvement.
  • Drive and own functional coverage implementation, coverage report, coverage review and add new tests for coverage improvement.
  • Drive IP level feature bring-up associated with the block and assist design or verification lead to isolate the problem at IP level simulation environment.

Preferred Experience:
