Senior / Staff ARM SOC Integration/Verification Engineer

Location: Austin, TX, United States
Date Posted: 11-11-2017
Position Title: Senior/Staff ARM SOC Integration/Verification Engineer

Status: Full-Time Employment (W2)
Work Location: Austin, TX
Full Benefits: www.encoresemi.com/benefits

Essential Duties/Responsibilities/Functions/Tasks:

Build and deliver "top-level" or "full-chip" integration verification environments for new ASIC / SOC designs.  The team would be building capabilities to verify a large SOC encompassing multiple ARM controllers on a coherent fabric with many interfaces including various I/O (PCIe, Ethernet, USB, etc), Memory Controllers, and other accelerator modules.  While the starting point of the verification would be standard simulation models, the team is also focused on shifting the appropriate levels of verification to Emulation based models.
 
Minimum Qualifications:

• Experience in Integration Verification for large SOCs at the "full-chip" level.  This includes a strong knowledge of protocols for connecting CPUs, interconnect fabrics and peripherals together as well as knowledge of the various high level functions such as boot protocols, security, clocking, power, etc required for large SOCs.
• Expert in developing Verification environments in SV/UVM with the goal to build an optimized simulation environment to flush out bugs as quickly as possible to deliver a highly functional first silicon.
• Experience in verification of the integration of peripheral IPs, including 3rd party IPs with the focus being on correctness of the interfaces and operation of the various full-chip SOC protocols.
• Experience moving beyond simulation models especially setting up infrastructure and environments for Emulation based models utilized in the pre-silicon, and potentially, post-silicon, timeframes.
• BSEE required, MSEE preferred; 5+ years of Verification experience.

Preferred Qualifications:

• Experience in verification of SOCs based on ARM CPU/microcontrollers utilizing AMBA / AXI interface protocols
• Strong debugging experience
• Experience with Cadence simulation-based verification tools
• Verification experience beyond simulation such as with creation of virtual models, or the use of Formal Property Verification are a plus but not required
