CPU Design Verification Engineer 

 

THE ROLE: 

In this position, you will perform pre-Silicon Functional Verification of next generation high performance Microprocessor designs. It involves research, design, develop, and/or test of electronic components and systems for semiconductor and related device manufacturing, employing knowledge of electronic theory. 

 

THE PERSON: 

We are searching for candidates who love technical challenges and are natural problem solvers. Detail oriented people who seek continuous improvement and thrive in an innovative environment are encouraged to apply. 

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: 

  • Develop and execute on verification test plans at different levels of design hierarchy including unit and full-chip environments 

  • Develop high level language testbench components including stimulus drivers, BFMs, behavioral models, monitors and checkers 

  • Develop, simulate and debug directed and random stimulus and assembly level tests to find bugs in the microprocessor design and verify the functionality and verify conformance to the ISA 

Additional responsibilities may include: 

  • Develop and analyze assertions and coverage terms. Participate in technical reviews of the specifications, design and test plans. Identify and address areas of concern to meet design quality objectives. 

  • Work with RTL writers to resolve all simulation failures and discrepancies 

  • Develop tools, infrastructure, processes and flows to enable functional verification 

  • Document test plans and testbench component plans and drive reviews with peers and partners. 

  • Maintain and improve existing functional verification infrastructure and methodology. 

  • When presented with Silicon issues, replicate in the pre-silicon environment, and provide debug expertise to root cause the issue and ensure complete validation 

  • Contribute towards and drive as needed pre-silicon and/or post-silicon verification of complex architectural and microarchitectural features 

  • Drive project goals and dependencies with cross-site Architects, RTL writers, and Physical Design engineers. 

  • Independently develop quality, timely and cost-effective solutions 

 

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE: 

We are looking for CPU level design verification experience with a background in Computer Architecture and excellent coding skills. Other skills include:   

  • Processor pipeline and memory hierarchy. 

  • Hands-on work in C++ programming for either hardware modeling or testbench development or projects of similar scope and complexity. 

  • Experience with industry standard verification testbench and IP methodology such as UVM or similar. 

  • Assembly language programming and Instruction Set Architecture of a current microprocessor. 

  • Hardware Verification methodology and techniques such as simulation, debug, coverage, formal, etc. 

  • Experience working in a Unix/Linux environment. 

  • Scripting languages (e.g. Perl or Python or Ruby). 

  • Hardware/logic simulators (e.g. VCS or NC-Verilog). 

  • Debug tools or waveform viewers. 

  • System Verilog language. 

  • Object oriented programming (e.g. C++ or System Verilog) 

  • RTL emulation platform simulation model. 

 

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS: 

  • MSEE, MSCE or related degree a plus
