Graphics Pre Si Validation Engineer

Job Description

Are you passionate about computer graphics? Disrupting the industry with your innovation? Working with leading Graphics Hardware engineers on Intel’s latest GPUCPU architecture? Do you love collaborating with diverse teams to help achieve Best-In-Class visual experiences that enable uses to immerse themselves in a new visual future. The Graphics and Throughput Computing Hardware Engineering (GTCHE) team has an opportunity for you.  GTCHE is looking for talented hardware engineers to join the experienced team that designs all of Intel’s GPU products.  Intel’s GPU products are constantly evolving to run all the leading edge applications in 3D graphics machine learning video processing and other highly parallelized data applications.

The Hardware team is within GTCHE and produces new designs every year with years of new designs already in the development pipeline. Joining this team will give you an opportunity to shape and develop products that will be used worldwide and that will run tomorrows most important parallel computing applications.

Specifically we are looking for experienced Graphics Pre Si Verification Engineers to help us with the following responsibilities:

  • Definition and development of test plans verification environments validation components bus functional models trackers checkers scoreboards test benches etc.
  • Development of functional coverage points assertions random and directed tests constraints to validate 3D Graphics blocks at various levels of integration
  • Integration and maintenance of HDL models and verification environments for simulation and ASIC logic synthesis
  • Execution and debug of hardware simulations achievement of functional test coverage objectives
  • Identification and closure of design and environment defects including bug fixes requiring manual ECOs gate level netlist edits
  • Debug of graphics hardware in emulation and/or silicon hardware environments working with synthetic low level tests as well as with stimulus from real world applications and benchmarks and the graphics driver

Behavioral traits that we are looking for:

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong leadership in driving execution across different functional team
  • Possess strong teamwork problem solving and influencing skills along with abilities to work with different geographical locations
