ASIC Verification Engineer at Ayar Labs
Santa Clara, CA, US

The ASIC Verification Engineer is responsible for pre-Si verification and validation of complex SoCs with both high-speed custom and digital blocks. You will work in a dynamic startup environment as part of a small IC design team. The ideal candidate is a hands-on self-starter who can craft design specifications, verification suites and test-benches based on input from colleagues, customers, and industry and who can effectively manage his or her own time to take projects to completion with limited supervision and guidance.


    Develop verification methodology and testbenches for digital and mixed-signal blocks
    Test plan, coverage analysis and closure for parallel link and SerDes IP blocks and on-chip interconnects
    Design and contribute to design for test (DFT) methodologies


    BS, MS, or PhD in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or related fields
    3+ years of work or academic experience in ASIC design verification
    History of assuming responsibility for a variety of technical tasks and completing projects independently
    Proficient in System Verilog, UVM testbench development for design verification of complex digital and PHY blocks (in AMS and WREAL modeling verification)
    Proficient in pre-synthesis, and post- place-and-route functional verification (NCSIM, VCS, ModelSim)
    Proficient in scripting or programming languages


    Experience working on digital designs with multiple clock domains and clock dividers
    Experience in verification of SerDes IP block interfaces in a complex SoC fabric environment
    Experience in verification of the PCS, PMA SerDes layers and internal SerDes digital backends
    Experience with verification of HBM memory interfaces (PHY and controller)
    Experience in formal model equivalence checking tools and verification methodology
    Programming experience in Python
