Job Description

Come join Intel's Devices Development Group organization as an SoC Design Engineer focused on Design for Test (DFT) Validation. As a member of the product team, you will work firsthand with multi-function teams/sites, implementing and validating state-of-the-art design for test and manufacturing solutions, appropriate for new and existing technology in the product. In this role you will be working as part of a pre-silicon validation team for future Intel SoCs or IPs, focusing on DFT RTL validation. You will be working with pre-silicon and post-silicon validation teams to improve design for test features and test flows. You will also work closely with post-silicon manufacturing validation and test content development teams to enable high volume testing and silicon debug. You will be pioneering new test methodologies and flows, reviewing, and publishing architectural specs and supporting next-generation silicon high volume manufacturing enabling on ATE (Automatic Test Equipment).

Your responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Validation of DFx features such as Scan, SBFT,TAP, Arrays, Fuse etc.. using simulation, emulation
  • Creating plans and tests for validating portions of a complex microarchitecture using written specs, RTL code and other tests as a guide
  • Learning the architecture and microarchitecture by debugging failures to the root cause
  • Developing and utilizing various DFT and validation tools and/or methodologies to implement validation plans with the goal being to ensure a solid design
  • Participating in the debug of failures on silicon and developing new testing strategies to detect these failures on RTL models
  • Developing high level (for example, System verilog) modeling for RTL components
  • Developing validation tools and software
