Senior CPU Verification Engineer

Job Description

In this position, you will join the next generation CPU verification team and will be responsible for architecting and implementing pre-silicon and post-silicon validation strategies to exhaustively validate the architecture and micro-architecture changes implemented in the CPU.

Your responsibilities may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Technical ownership of validation of a microarchitecture block, methodology, or otherwise significant aspect of CPU validation
  • Inventing and deploying new techniques across simulation, emulation/FPGA and virtual platform to accelerate validation of CPU hardware, firmware, and software domains
  • Unifying and executing functional, performance, and power validation tools and methods including dynamic, formal, and analytical approaches
  • Developing validation content like tools, test generators to match the complexity of new core and be reused in pre-si and post-si
  • Get the required technical specs and create high quality technical documentation like test plans, strategy documents
  • Coordinating global verification tasks requiring engagement from architecture, design, pre-si and post-si validation, and other teams across Intel to achieve project goals Influencing and contributing to post-silicon debug preparation and sighting resolution
  • Mentor junior team members to become the rock-stars of tomorrow.

  • Experience with a hardware modeling language, such as Verilog, VHDL, or System Verilog and industry standard logic simulation tools
  • Standalone validation environment development in Verilog, Specman/E, System Verilog UVM/OVM Validation and debug experience including test writing/generation, checker development, coverage analysis, failure debug, root cause analysis
  • Assembly language programming, code generation, or other low-level software experience
  • Post-silicon debug and analysis
  • Programming experience in at least one language: C/C++, Perl, Python, Ruby, Java, TCL, etc.
  • Intel or industry experience in pre-silicon verification of CPU cores

Preferred Requirements:

  • Knowledge of Intel Architecture ISA and system architecture, x86 assembly language.
  • Research publications, patent filings, or other evidence of personal technical innovation in validation methodology advancement
  • Experience using Formal Verification tools like JasperGold
  • Familiarity with emulation and FPGA as validation platforms
