Role Description:


Design Verification Engineering role with Security IP subsystem Team. The primary focus of this role is Hardware/Firmware verification of various embedded micro-processor subsystems and the associated hardware accelerators in leading edge SOC’s.

These IP subsystems provide high performance functions to the respective SoC, such as security policy management, cryptography, data compression, high throughput DMA, etc.


Key Responsibilities:

  • Development and verification of embedded firmware for SOC secure boot and embedded microprocessor driven hardware acceleration services for cryptography, decompression and large scale DMA functions.
  • Hardware verification in UVM System Verilog and C-DPI structured testbench.
  • Develop and maintain subsystem verification architecture, testbench, test methodology for
    • Embedded CPU and subcomponent IPs with
    • AXI/AHB busses and HW accelerators such as
    • Cryptography, Data Compression, DMA, etc.
  • Participate in subsystem specification, influence IP micro-architecture development, develop and verify abstracted performance models
    • Create abstracted FW and HW performance models
    • Develop critical target code to collect IP performance key parameters
    • Explore subsystem architecture performance trade-off for FW and HW optimization
  • Develop and execute subsystem and block level test plans
    • Develop FW/HW co-verification methodology
    • Develop UVC and System Response models
    • Develop and debug UVM and C-DPI test cases with integrated FW
    • Improve verification metrics
  • Further develop subsystem and block level testbenches using UVM randomized test methodology and C-DPI directed test methodology.
    • Develop and maintain subsystem level integration scripts
    • Develop and maintain subsystem testbench build and test run scripts
    • Drive to verification metrics closure
  • Interface with SoC integration and SoC DV teams
    • Define and develop IP level DV API to support SoC level DV effort
    • Develop and maintain IP build and delivery infrastructure to support SoC level integration of SecurityIP subsystems. 
    • Support SoC level IP emulation, silicon bring-up and debugging effort


Preferred Experience:

  • 7+ years design verification experience
  • Proficient in Verilog, System Verilog, and several scripting languages (Make, Perl, Python, etc.)
  • Excellent knowledge about UVM methodology and C-DPI methodology
  • Excellent knowledge about standard bus/interface protocols (i.e. AXI, AHB, AMBA)
  • Excellent experience with ASIC verification tools, simulation, linting, power aware simulation, etc.
  • Strong analytical/problem solving skills and attention to details
  • Being a motivated team member, and able to independently drive tasks to completion as well
  • Professional interpersonal and communication skills




  • Bachelor’s degree with major in Electronics Engineering, Computer Science, or another relevant subject
  • Master’s Degree preferred.
