Place of employment


What we offer:

Your tasks and responsibilities

  • Define digital/system architecture as per system requirement. Interact with analog design engineers to derive/define specification. Interact with SW and HW team and define functions such that SW/HW interface is clean
  • Understand/derive spec, design partitioning and implement blocks in RTL accordingly
  • Ability to incorporate embedded microcontrollers into a system and define optimal hardware/firmware partition
  • Verify the design implementation at block and top level using block level test bench or top-level test bench using both directed tests and constrained random regressions
  • Support/Perform the development and execution of verification test plans, test bench design and activities which includes environment setup, regressions, failure debug, and netlist simulation for tape-out, develop detailed test and coverage plans based on IC specifications
  • Synthesis, scan insertion and ATPG generation. Define/Write assertion in the design. Perform and review CDC, LEC, LINT
  • Prepare documents required for design challenge, internal discussions, test requirements and review meetings (DV Plan, DV execution plan, …)
  • Support the silicon validation and production test (DFT) and plan, supervise or perform validation on digital portion of design
  • Technical communication with customer (and/or marketing) and other work-packages, including: presentation in design reviews, test requirements, defining / tracking / working to ensure schedule adherence and interactive problem solving
  • Help junior / younger engineers learn required knowledge and experience through projects work
