Emulation Design Verification Engineer

THE ROLE:

In this position, you will perform Functional Verification of next generation high performance Microprocessor designs – with a focus on leveraging Emulation environments.

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 in emulation environments
  • Develop, simulate and debug directed and random stimulus to find bugs in the microprocessor design and verify the functionality and verify conformance to the ISA and other specifications
  • Work with RTL writers to resolve failures and discrepancies
  • Develop emulation testbench components to stimulate and monitor the DUT
  • Maintain and improve emulation infrastructure and methodology.
  • When presented with Silicon issues, replicate in the emulation environment, and provide debug expertise to root cause the issue and ensure complete validation

Additional responsibilities may include:

  • Develop tools, infrastructure, processes and flows to enable functional verification in the emulation environment
  • 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.
  • Contribute towards and drive as needed pre-silicon and/or post-silicon verification of complex architectural and microarchitectural features
  • Document test plans and testbench component plans and drive reviews with peers and partners
  • 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 design verification experience with a background in Emulation, and Computer Architecture. Other skills include:

  • Hardware Verification methodology and techniques such as emulation, assertions simulation, debug, coverage
  • Emulator experience (e.g. Palladium, Veloce, ZeBu, HAPS)
  • Debug tools or waveform viewers.
  • Processor pipeline and memory hierarchy.
  • Hands-on work in Verilog/SystemVerilog programming for either hardware modeling or testbench development or projects of similar scope and complexity.
  • Experience with industry standard verification testbench and IP methodology
  • Assembly language programming and Instruction Set Architecture of a current microprocessor.
  • Experience working in a Unix/Linux environment.
  • Scripting languages (e.g. Perl or Python or Ruby).

Academic credentials:

  • MSEE, MSCE or related degree preferred
