The Opportunity

We’re looking for the Wavemakers of tomorrow.

Alphawave Semi enables tomorrow’s future by accelerating the critical data communication at the heart of our digital world – from seamless video streaming to AI to the metaverse and much more. Our technology powers product innovation in the most data-demanding industries today, including data centers, networking, storage, artificial intelligence, 5G wireless infrastructure, and autonomous vehicles. Customers partner with us for mission-critical data communication, our innovative technologies, and our proven track record. Together, we enable the next generation of digital technology.

What you’ll do:

  • Be a senior member of Alphawave central DFT methodology group responsible for developing flows across all company departments and projects
  • Architect methodologies and flows for an integrated, RTL-centric “shift left” DFT environment across company IPs, chiplets and SoC designs.
  • Develop automated verification test bench and sequence creation for DFT IP. Architecting end-2-end verification solutions from static design checks, through formal and sequence-based verification.
  • Build IP/block and SoC level scan insertion flows and script ATPG retargeting procedures. Creating automated QoR checks for implementation quality control.
  • Write static timing constraints, create waivers, and devise flows for bullet proof timing checks
  • Hiring, training and leading DFT engineers in daily tasks and activities to fulfill company road map.
  • You will report to head of Central DFT Team.
  • Mentor DFT engineers through out the project life cycle.

What you’ll need:

  • Engineer with proven technical and people management skills
  • Collaborative team player, and out of the box mindset
  • Good understanding in Verilog/VHDL and System Verilog
  • Exposure with CAD and automation. Good exposure for using Perl techniques in creating generic codes. Knowledge of TCL and Python.
  • Extensively experienced with main DFT standards such as JTAG (1149.1/1149.6/1500), iJTAG (1687) and BIST techniques (memory BIST, logic BIST, interconnect BISTs)
  • Track record in integrating custom made DFT logic for complex SoCs (System-On-Chip) and CoWoS (Chip-On-Wafer-On-Substrate) designs.
  • Experience in SoC and IP/Block level scan insertion and ATPG, simulation of zero delay and SDF annotated test sequences.
  • Experience in scripting/reviewing SCAN/MBIST timing constraints.
  • Developing DFT rule bases and DFT-DRC checks with spyglass are valuable additions.

Good to have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering science, Electrical and Computer Engineering or Computer Science
  • 10+ years of experience in complex SoC designs in RTL, DFT or FE capacity. Candidates with less experience may be considered for other senior technical roles.
  • Vast experience to various DFT EDA tools from Tessent, SNPS and Cadence
  • Experience in core wrapping, pattern retargeting & packetizing ATPG techniques. SSN knowledge.
