Job Description

You will be part of Intel Advanced Design Organization (AD) within Design Enablement (DE) focused on pathfinding and development of advanced memory technology and circuits to enable best-in-class memory collateral/IP and product design across all generations of Intel process technology.

You will be involved in deep sub-micron IC logic and VLSI design, validation, development, testing, post-Si characterization and debug in Intel's leading process technologies, developing, verifying and validating competitive solutions with Intel's PROM circuit technology for use in mobile, IOT, client, network and server segments.

Job responsibilities include:

  • RTL design and validation, developing tests for designs and validating PROM Sub-system
  • Controller and IP designs, identifying potential design limitations and bugs that can impact design margin and component yield
  • Provides Post-Si support, including but not limited to characterization, test definition, debugging product returns as well as reviewing and dispositioning results

Important behavior trait we look for:

  • Clear documentation and communication skills - thorough, concise, effective documentation of logic design, verification and testing are expected, as well as IP integration support to SoC customers, timely communication, and careful consideration of customer requests.


Minimum Qualifications:

MS Degree in Electrical Engineering or related field with 3+ years of semiconductor industry experience OR PhD Degree in Electrical Engineering or related field with 1+ years of semiconductor industry.

Experience in Logic design, pre and post-Si validation and testing such as:

  • Micro-architecture definition of design features, test plan creation and functional verification
  • Effective behavioral modeling and testing of Analog and Mixed-signal circuits in Verilog and System Verilog, as well as logical equivalence verification between schematic and Verilog models.
  • UPF (Unified Power Format) creation using low power techniques and handling multiple power domain design.
  • Physical verification of behavioral models and circuits through industry standard tools (spyglass, vclp) and methods.
  • Solid understanding of JTAG and other industry-standard protocols, state machines, fuse programming and reading.
  • Experience in test bench creation to generate Post-Si test patterns and vectors.
  • Experience in Pre-Si validation - creation of test plan, test bench and test case development, review and debug of test results, and coding RTL assertions to prevent illegal states.
  • Knowledge of behavioral modeling, Verilog and System Verilog coding, and Open Verification Methodology (OVM)


  • Knowledge of deep sub-micron IC design is recommended.
  • Experience in scripting languages (perl, tcl etc) to enhance automation in design, validation and testing is recommended.
  • Experience in Post-Si characterization and debug, including proposing and writing tests and experiments, and reviewing results.
  • At least 5 years of experience in product development and testing using industry-standard tools.
