Job Purpose

As a Verification Engineer on the Logic Design team, you will participate in the definition, implementation, and execution of our verification strategy, as well as being a key participant in
the analysis of our IP/SoC verification quality of results.

This position is a highly visible role, the simple purpose of which is to ensure the silicon works.

By its design philosophy, RISC-V is highly configurable, and we have several different configurations in our design pipeline, with various combinations of supported instruction set and with various peripherals and bus interconnect architectures. Implementing design verification methodologies that can accommodate such variation is a challenging task, to be addressed in this role.

Principal Accountabilities
  • Derive/capture verification requirements and come up with verification project plan and verification strategy/methodology considering IP verification status, schedule, reuse, design skews/configurations.
  • Architect test bench based on the verification/design requirements
  • Review work products (test plan, test cases, test bench code etc) of junior engineers
  • Collect verification metrics, status and risks to management
  • Create test suites (SV/UVM, C, etc, as needed) and test benches
  • Collaborate closely with the design team to address any design errors
  • Perform initial debug of test failures to identify design errors
  • Analyse test results (logs, waveforms) and report the observations in case of issues.
  • Identify functional cover points and assertions, write test cases/sequences to cover them
  • Improve the quality of verification, identify coverage holes, adjust randomization, write new test cases to improve coverage
  • Automate verification environment to handle multiple design configurations
  • Review and sign-off verification for tape-out
  • Good understanding of SoC Architectures
  • Should have good track record and taped out more than one SoC/Subsystems
  • Should have mentored team of 2-5 Engineers.
  • Should have good experience in all sections of verification flow starting from verification requirements capture, test planning, test bench architecture development, test case/sequence coding test bench components/assertions coding, functional, code coverage closure and reviews
  • Strong Experience in CPU/BFM(VIP) based test benches
  • Excellent programming and Strong debugging skills
  • Strong knowledge in AMBA AXI, AHB, APB and experience with AMBA based NIC/NoC
  • Experience in High-speed protocols like PCIe 4/5, LPDDR 4/5, GDDR6, SD/eMMC and GBE
  • Good knowledge on low-speed peripherals and IO interfaces.
  • Good knowledge on DFT and DFD architectures
  • Good knowledge and experience with boot, reset, clocking schemes and Low power
  • Good knowledge and verification experience with high-performance architectures
  • Should have done automation with Perl, python, make and shell scripting
  • Good experience with EDA simulation and waveform viewer tools
  • Good mentoring and interpersonal skills
  • Excellent Analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Orientation towards Innovation, automation
  • Good time and risk management skills
  • BE/ B. Tech/ ME/ M. Tech or equivalent in ECE/ EEE/CSE
