Job Description

  • In this role you will be required to define, implement, and verify DFT architecture and features for Scan / MBIST / JTAG / ATPG / boundary-scan for our next generation FPGA product.
  • Take lead to setup DFT development methodologies, plans, and schedules, on top of performing ATPG patterns verification with gate-level simulation.
  • You will be at the fore-front in deciding the tradeoff of test coverage and test cost, while supporting post-silicon bring-up and yield analysis.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Master with at least 6 years or Bachelor with at least 8 years demonstrated experience in DFT for VLSI designs.
  • Expert in scan insertion, ATPG, MBIST, JTAG, boundary scan, Scan Compression, and at-speed testing.
  • Excellent debugging skills for RTL and gate-level simulations.
  • Knowledge of defect types, fault models, debugging, and validation on ATE and silicon bring-up.

Preferred Skills

  • Proven leadership skills.
  • Good communication skills and the ability to work with teams crossing different geos.
  • Prior experience in engaging Design teams on pre-Silicon test planning and validation.
