Creates, defines and develops system validation environment and test suites. Uses and applies emulation and platformlevel tools and techniques to ensure performance to spec. Responsible for the development of methodologies, execution of validation plans, and debug of failures. Requires broad understanding of multiple system areas and requires interfaces with Architecture, Design, and Presilicon Validation teams in improving postsilicon test content and providing feedback for future ondie debug features.
Inside this Business Group
Pre-Silicon validation engineers are responsible to ensure the logic correctness during the development of each new Intel CPU product before it is being shipped to production. The role includes developing dedicated verification environments and tools, while driving a complex process of exercising the design to verify its logical correctness. These environments are developed using unique, state-of-the-art languages and tools, and advanced software engineering methodologies. Various validation techniques are used, such as simulation, emulation, formal verification, and digital/analog verification, while offering a unique Hardware-Software experience. In addition to various tools, languages and validation methodologies, engineers will develop expertise with Intel Architecture and Micro Architecture and will be deeply involved in the process of defining new Intel features. They are expected to be independent, creative, with the ability to innovate new solutions and demonstrate uncompromised quality during their work.
There are open positions for Pre-Silicon validation engineers in Yakum Intel site.
Engineers should possess a BSC or MSC degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering or Computer Science. Additional qualifications include:
- Knowledge in Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) design and/or verification
- Experience in developing Register Transfer Level (RTL) validation environment
- Experience in working with Verilog/SVTB* and OVM/UVM* would be an added advantage
- Familiarity with CPU architecture would be an added advantage
The Platform Engineering Group (PEG) is responsible for the design, development, and production of system-on-a-chip (SoC) products that go into Intel’s next generation client and mobile platforms. PEG strives to lead the industry moving forward through product innovation and world class engineering.
