Oversees definition, design, verification, and documentation for SoC System on a Chip development. Determines architecture design, logic design, and system simulation. Defines module interfaces/formats for simulation. Performs Logic design for integration of cell libraries, functional units and subsystems into SoC full chip designs, Register Transfer Level coding, and simulation for SoCs. Contributes to the development of multidimensional designs involving the layout of complex integrated circuits. Performs all aspects of the SoC design flow from highlevel design to synthesis, place and route, timing and power to create a design database that is ready for manufacturing. Analyzes equipment to establish operation infrastructure, conducts experimental tests, and evaluates results. May also review vendor capability to support development.
1.Develops pre-Silicon functional validation tests to verify system will meet design requirements.
2.Creates test plans for RTL validation, defining and running system simulation models, and finding and implementing corrective measures for failing RTL tests. 3.Analyzes and uses results to modify testing. In this position, you will be a member of the Pre-silicon validation team in the Server Development Group SDG, responsible for functional correctness of next generation of Cache controller for high end server platforms.
4.Validating designs at block or full-chip level by authoring validation plans, writing focus tests, creating templates defining coverage strategies, developing and analyzing coverage monitors, creating event injectors, writing architectural and micro-architectural correctness checkers, developing BFMs Bus Functional Model, running functional simulations, and debugging failures.
5.Maintains and enhances the validation infrastructure by creating new tools to support validation.
Requirements:The Position requires a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Electrical Engineering and/or Computer Engineering and/or Computer Science and/or a related field with 8+ years of experience in the area of either hardware design or verification. Pre-silicon verification work using a validation methodology such as UVM, Specman E, VMM, AVM is also needed.
Additional skills used in the position include
1.Object Oriented Programming
2.System Verilog with UVM/OVM/C++ Programming
3.Knowledge of microprocessor architecture.
4.Understanding of Cache CoherencyInside this Business Group
