The candidate will be part of the Graphics Hardware system Validation teams in Visual and Parallel Computing Group VPG Bangalore, working on platform bring up, and graphics systems validation, power and performance debugs. VPG is responsible for delivering integrated graphics IP for Intel's various products.Responsible for Post-Si validation of Intel internal Graphics Cores 3D , Media, Power Mgmt and Display. Includes validation in Emulation/FPGAOwn, scope and drive the development of post-silicon verification test plans for few units in 3D-graphics pipeline.Ability to Define test scenarios, write test cases, validate system level new features, regressions execution, track/analyze failures and debug.Collaboratively work with the partner teams from design Software , platform to quickly root cause the test failuresSupport SW driver/WHQL/benchmarks / media workloads/ Display Compliance test suites failure debugSupport test plans across base and derivate projects and different stepping within the project.Independently work with architects/designers/pre-si validation/tech leads/SW driver team/SW-simulation/Emulation teams in driving the test plan reviews, and bug fixes to closure.Interface with cross-site functional teams in different time zones to drive the validation.Set up work groups/task forces to drive any focused validation tasks/debugs.Review bugs, post-mortem of bug escapes and propose methods to catch bugs earlyAnalyze impact on performance/power and drive the fixes/workarounds as per project milestone prioritiesUnderstand usage models driver and bring in scenarios early in emulation to validate to minimize escapesMentor and guide junior engineers in writing test cases, executing test plans. Provide direction on debug both in emulation and post-SiTrack the progress of quality/coverage goals. Provide periodic updates to program management on progress and escalate issues on timeDriver improvements/efficiencies in validation. Write technical papers for internal/external technical conferences in 3D graphics domain
