About the job
Design verification (DV) engineers are responsible for providing confidence that a semiconductor chip will meet all specifications in the data sheet, work robustly in the customer's system and be optimally manufacturable and testable, before the device goes to tapeout (mask / pattern generation). To do this, they run simulations to validate the device in various system/functional scenarios, break and overstress the device, prove that behavioral models are adequately cross-checked against the actual design, analyze complex circuit interactions (i.e. voltage domain crossing, floating nodes), etc.
DV engineers work closely across front-end and back-end teams to ensure full alignment before, during and after silicon production. You can think of DV as the auditor or quality assurance team for our designs and devices; this discipline is critical to verify device functionality, mitigating risk of qualification failures, customer returns and unplanned rework -- which will impact a business' ability to continue to sell and develop new products.
In this position, you will be working on AMS verification of advanced mixed-signal battery gauge, monitor and protector circuits using state-of-the art process technology. In this role, your responsibilities will include the following.
- Develop detailed Verification/Test plans using specifications to cover all the analog/digital functionality/features of a mixed-signal chip for our next generation designs.
- Develop SystemVerilog/VerilogAMS chip-level testcases based on the verification plan.
- Testcase debug and Verification closure for the analog/digital functionality of Mixed signal chips, at chip-level in AMS environment.
- Finding design bugs with break-the-design mindset and ensuring design is bug-free and robust.
- Develop verilogAMS based behavioral models for the analog blocks and integrate them in the chip-level verification environment.
- Running regressions and DV closure activities.
- Work closely with design , systems teams to review/close spec gaps and design bugs, as they arise.
- Work closely with Validation and Test teams pre and post silicon.
- Be proactive in risk assessment and drive solutions to mitigate them
- Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or related field.
- 5+ years of related experience.
- Strong hands on working experience in AMS verification for Mixed-signal chips.
- Strong programming skills using SystemVerilog and VerilogAMS.
- Good in verification approach, flow, concepts.
- Experience in writing an exhaustive verification plan from the specs.
- Experience in chip-level testcases in SystemVerilog.
- Experience in metric-based Verification closure using Code and Functional coverage.
- Experience in random/constrained random verification.
- Experience with Cadence simulation and debug tools.
- Good in debugging skills. Ability to work independently and self-driven/motivated person.
- Strong written and verbal communication skills. Good team player.
- Strong verbal and written communication skills.
- Ability to work in teams and collaborate effectively with people in different functions.
- Ability to take the initiative and drive for results.
- Strong time management skills that enable on-time project delivery.
- Working well in a team environment is imperative in this role.
- Demonstrated ability to build strong, influential relationships.
- Good listener and excellent verbal and written communication skills.
- Experience with UART, SPI, I2C communication protocols is a plus.
