ASIC Development Co-op

Vancouver, Canada Job ID JR0233396 Job Category Intern/Student Work Mode Hybrid Experience Level Intern
Job Description


A co-op term with Intel of Canada's Intel Foundry Services group is a challenging but rewarding experience, allowing you to gain knowledge and experience in integrated circuit design and test, from chiplets to SoCs. As a member of our team, you will work alongside experienced engineers to solve new and interesting problems, making an important contribution to our exciting custom silicon solutions.

From cloud computing to 5G connectivity and artificial intelligence, semiconductors are at the heart of everything that computes and processes data. Intel is one of a handful of companies in the world, and the only one in North America, to both design and manufacture SoCs at leading edge semiconductor processes. Intel's vision for Foundry Services is to be the second largest semiconductor foundry in the world, by the end of the decade, and the Vancouver ASIC team is an integral part of this vision. We develop value-add designs, utilizing the most advanced technologies available within Intel, to enable IFS customers to build the most cutting edge SoCs to succeed in their applications and markets.

Modern SoCs have grown exponentially more complex, integrating ever more functionality on to a single silicon die, and integrating multiple silicon dies into a package. ASIC verification methodologies must also continue to advance and keep pace with this growing complexity, to ensure a high quality and functional SoC design. The ASIC verification team develops object-oriented test environments and reference models, using both in-house developed techniques as well as industry-standard tools and methodologies, and simulates them against the actual ASIC design to uncover design bugs.

Vancouver Office:
Located in South Vancouver's urban town center at Cambie Street and SW Marine Drive, the Intel Marine Gateway site features direct access to the Canada line, bus transit, shops, restaurants, health care facilities and a movie theater. The site is also a quick 15-minute Skytrain away from downtown Vancouver.

Intel Vancouver interns also enjoy many of the benefits of regular Intel employees. This includes full health benefits, paid vacation, Intel discounts and use of our many amenities and services we have on site.

Benefits:

  • Opportunities to engage with some of the world's greatest engineering mentors within Intel, globally
  • Access to engineering training courses that relate to today's real-world engineering/computer science problems
  • Full health benefits (including LASIK/PRK)
  • Paid vacation (including sick days)
  • Access to exclusive Intel discounts (including Intel CPUs)
  • Complementary access to a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and beverages
  • Fully equipped on-site gym
  • Recreational activities (pool table, Nintendo Switch, foosball, table tennis, massage chairs, cable, soccer)


Company Profile:
Intel Corporation develops technology that has enabled the computer and Internet revolutions which have changed the world. Founded in 1968 to build semiconductor memory products, Intel introduced the world's first microprocessor in 1971.

As an integral part of Intel's new Integrated Device Manufacturing (IDM) 2.0 model strategy, we establish Intel Foundry Services (IFS), a fully vertical, standalone foundry business, reporting directly to Intel's CEO. IFS will be a world-class foundry business and a major US and European-based capacity provider to serve customers globally. We differentiate IFS with a combination of leading-edge packaging and process technology, committed capacity in the US and Europe, plus a world-class IP portfolio including x86 cores, graphics, media, display, AI, interconnect, fabric, and other critical foundational IP, along with Arm and RISC-V ecosystem IPs.

IFS will also provide access to silicon design services to help our customers seamlessly turn silicon into solutions using industry-standard design packages. Intel dedicates IFS to the success of its customers with entire Profit and Loss responsibilities. This model will ensure that our foundry customers' products will receive our utmost focus in terms of service, technology enablement, and capacity commitments. IFS is already engaged with customers today, starting with our existing foundry offerings. We are expanding imminently to include our most advanced technologies optimized for cutting-edge performance, making them ideal for high-performance applications.

We are looking for enthusiastic students with strong problem-solving abilities, excellent communication, and desire to learn. Technically, a solid foundation of digital design (VHDL, Verilog) and object-oriented programming is desired but not required. Students who are looking for a challenging and rewarding work experience should not hesitate to apply.

The final job assignment will be based on available projects during the work term and on the skills and interests of the student. We encourage students with relevant work experience (other co-op terms, work experience) to apply.
