RTL Verification Engineer

Malaysia Job ID JR0235477 Job Category Software Engineering Work Mode Hybrid Experience Level Experienced
Job Description

As an RTL Verification Engineer within the Design Creation and Debug Group, you can expect to work on validating PSG's System-on-Chip integration tool, Platform Designer, with responsibilities covering a variety of IP components spanning from Memory Mapped and Streaming Interconnect blocks, microprocessors & microcontrollers and an assortment of components supporting embedded FPGA design and debugging flows.  The charter of this team is to make implementing powerful embedded hardware systems a straightforward and enjoyable task from design creation through debugging and performance optimization.  The team is responsible for the full stack of these tools from GUI, model and OS specific device drivers, soft-core processor design, hardware generators and hardware IP components.

We have the fortune of interacting in the highly dynamic space encompassing programmable hardware design, embedded system creation, processor design and embedded software development; designing tools and infrastructure to empower design engineers across these realms.

As a Verification Engineer in this position, you will need to be an expert in SystemVerilog, with a focus on authoring and using UVM-based testbenches.  Our validation space is non-traditional in that we guarantee functionality across limitless permutations of adaptation modes and modules with our soft-NOC interconnect and as such our validation strategies employee high degrees of scalable and programable dynamicness.  With this dynamicness, expertise in various scripting languages (perl, python, tcl), and the willingness and ability to learn, are a critical requirements. Familiarity with C, Java or other high-level languages is a plus. Some larger projects we’re undertaking include:

  • Conceiving, designing and implementing reusable test frameworks for IP

  • Creating testbench generators for complex, highly-parameterizable IP

  • Creating regression tests for IP components: functional, integration, static analysis

  • Measuring throughput, latency, and other quality-of-results metrics of IP components, and communicating those results

  • Validating home-grown microprocessor implementations

  • Validating FPGA debugging IP and software

 We’ve assembled an energetic team of quality people and are looking for a couple more experienced engineers to help with the effort.

Verifications engineer will have a direct influence on the quality of our hardware implementations, and our ability to innovate rapidly while maintaining stable functionality. Tasks include the following:

  • Work closely with hardware designers to develop test frameworks that meet their needs

  • Write regression tests for complex parameterizable IP components

  • Research, define, and validate key customer use cases and design flows

  • Create reference RTL designs and embedded systems to validate components and software projects

  • Create, develop and use in-house measurement tools for tracking progress

  • Use Intel FPGA design tools like our customers to identify usability and productivity problems or missing features

  • Utilize the Platform Designer system design tool and accompanying software toolchain for Intel’s FPGA soft processors and ARM-based SoC solutions

  • BS degree in Electrical/Computer/Software Engineering or equivalent and 5+ years of relevant industry experience

  • Working knowledge in developing SystemVerilog-based simulation testbenches

  • Working knowledge with UVM

  • Knowledge of embedded software design flows and implementation would be a plus.

  • Familiarity with RiscV, Nios II or ARM-based embedded software development environments would be a strong plus.

  • Tcl, Perl, and/or Python scripting skills

  • Dedication to customer experience and usability

  • Good written and oral communication skills
