Did you know that Apple is hiring analog & mixed signal verification engineers? We are looking for engineers that are enthusiastic to find bugs! You have the opportunity to work with a creative team to craft test plans and enable production-quality first silicon. As a member of the analog and mixed signal verification team, you will be working with specialists for full-chip verification of the state of the art mixed-signal systems used in Apple's world-leading products!

Key Qualifications

  • Ability to verify analog/mixed-signal designs in a collaborative team environment.
  • Proficient in hardware descriptive languages: Verilog, System-Verilog, and/or Verilog-AMS code.
  • Familiarity with authoring analog assertion checks to catch bugs.
  • Capability to identify failure mechanisms and review verification results in analog IC designs.
  • Ability to write test plans, present results, and communicate clearly with multi-functional teams.
  • Comfortable with running simulations through compute clusters while optimizing simulation and wall time.
  • Understanding of both power management and related auxiliary circuitry: switching converters, linear converters, reference circuitry, bandgaps, data converters, and/or clock generators.
  • Have a familiarity with verification methodologies and tools: simulators, waveform viewers, execution automation, coverage collection, gate level simulations.
  • Experience developing scalable and portable test benches.
  • A background that includes scripting or programming languages is preferred. These include, but are not limited to, TCL, Skill, Python, and/or PERL.
  • Your familiarity with analog behavioral models is also a plus.

Description

In this role, you will be responsible for ensuring high quality silicon for IC chips and IPs. Daily work involves verification of mixed signal IC designs using a combination of analog circuits and RTL in the same simulation. Responsibilities include all phases of pre-silicon verification from early discussions with architects, reviewing specifications, writing verification plans, running simulations, triaging issues, and reviewing results with the team.
Develop detailed test and coverage plans based on IC specifications.
Completion of verification plans from beginning to end: test bench and environment bring-up, regressions, failure debug, and tape-out.
Develop verification methodology suitable for the IP, ensuring scalability and portability.
Develop verification environment, including stimuli, checkers, assertions, trackers, and coverage.
Sign-off mixed signal designs in preparation for tapeout.

Education & Experience

BSEE/CS or MSEE/CS preferred.
