PHYSICAL DESIGN ENGINEER 2

 

PRIMARY PURPOSE:

 

Provide technical expertise for the execution of the functional verification strategy for next-generation microprocessor designs. Maintain and enhance existing functional verification methodology. Improve existing infrastructure. Work on related projects and/or assignments as needed, to meet team goals. Perform project definition, training, and documentation. Develop quality, timely, and cost-effective solutions independently. Interface with architects and TG/PG RTL/Designers. Develop an effective working relationship with the parties involved.

 

KEY JOB FUNCTIONS:

 

  • Perform functional feature verification of high-speed Microprocessor designs, including the development of infrastructure, directed and random test suites at behavioral RTL level across SoC, Core, and block hierarchies.
  • Develop environments, infrastructure, and test plans to accommodate both full chip and stand-alone block-level verification and debug capabilities using simulation tools, debug tools, and programming skills, based on an in-depth understanding of the architecture and HDL/logical design of the microprocessor.
  • Develop an automated regression infrastructure setup for functional verification of high-speed microprocessor designs.
  • Based on a thorough understanding of the design architecture, develop, run, and debug x86 assembly-based directed tests and random exercisers to validate functionality and testability operation of the microprocessor design leveraging C/C++/Perl/assembly programming, logic design, and simulation skill set.
  • Resolve all simulation discrepancies and assertion responses for both behavioral and gate-level logic models.
  • Measure and analyze coverage results and take necessary actions to fill in coverage holes.

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

  • Understanding or technical expertise in functional verification of microprocessor designs.
  • Experience with Verilog/System Verilog HDL, programming in Perl, C/C++, and logic simulation is a requirement.
  • Direct experience with Verilog simulators is a plus.
  • Very strong understanding of computer architecture and assembly programming.
  • Good communication skills.

 

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS:

                    

MS or Ph.D. with some industry co-op experience desired (all degrees are related to CS or EE).
