Website Flex Logix

Flex Logix is the leading provider of reconfigurable computing technology for both AI inference and eFPGA IP solutions.  Our offerings push the leading edge of hardware, software and system design; pioneering new approaches to important problems.

  • Our InferX X1 is the industry’s most-efficient AI edge inference accelerator that brings AI to the masses in high-volume applications by providing a new silicon efficient dynamic logic paradigm for inference processing. InferX achieves GPU-level inference performance with a fraction of the die area and memory footprint.
  • Our EFLX embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP enables any SOC design to flexibly handle changing protocols, standards, algorithms, and customer requirements and enables reconfigurable accelerators that speeds key workloads up to 1000x compared to a general purpose processor. EFLX eFPGA is available in a wide range of process technologies and supports designs ranging from low cost microcontrollers to 5G baseband processing solutions.

Flex Logix develops industry-leading AI inference engines and is the #1 provider of eFPGA solutions. Our InferX X1 chipset is the industry’s fastest and most-efficient AI edge inference accelerator.  Our architecture is covered by dozens of patents and is highly differentiated, giving us a sustainable competitive advantage.

One significant advantage of the Flex solution is its synergistic combination of software and hardware, and a key part of that synergy is the SoftLogic team.  The SoftLogic team develops RTL that controls the execution (compute and memory) of the Flex Logix X1, which is a compute engine focused on delivering high performance on ML and AI mathematical kernels such as convolution, and transformers.  Flex Logix is searching for Design Verification Engineers to join its SoftLogic team to verify not just the logic of the execution control, but also the mathematics of the kernels.  As such, the position provides the opportunity to do far more than typical RTL verification.

The position of SoftLogic Design Verification Engineer reports directly to the Director of SoftLogic and will work closely with the Senior Director of SDET/QA.   While this position requires direct RTL verification, it offers growth potential into both hardware and software careers.

Responsibilities:

As part of the SoftLogic team, this position is responsible for helping to deliver a high quality, highly-performant SoftLogic component for a highly successful X1 product.  More specific responsibilities include

  • Responsible for all aspects of Softlogic Verification which is analogous to IP/Block level verification.
  • Development and debug of SV and/or UVM testbenches for highly configurable Softlogic RTL code.
  • Development of coverage plans and metrics, drive coverage activities and test writing.
  • Gate-Level Simulation debug to verify timing.
  • Writing integration tests to verify hardware/software
  • Testing overall product functionality as well as specific SoftLogic components
  • Collaborate with Softlogic Design Team and Software Developments Teams on testing and debug

Required Abilities and Experience

  • BSEE/MSEE with at least 3-5 years of relevant industry experience.
  • Deep understanding of Verilog
  • Must have hands-on experience with UVM/OVM
  • Ability to run and debug Verilog on standard industry simulators such as VCS, NCSIM, and Questa
  • Reasonable understanding of ML mathematical kernels such as convolution and transformers.
  • Experience with functional coverage analysis and assertion implementation

Additional experience that will be valuable:

  • Exposure to verifying highly configurable RTL designs
  • FPGA debug exposure
  • Successful track record of delivering highest quality verified FPGA/SoC RTL designs which went to mass production
  • Some RTL design experience

SoftLogic is a key component of the X1 product and is a critical requirement to the product’s success.   As it bridges hardware and software it presents both unique challenges and a wide range of career path growth opportunities.

For those who thrive on meeting challenges, Flex Logix provides an ideal supportive environment, intelligent personable colleagues, and plenty of interesting problems to challenge you.

We are looking for passionate team members, to be part of an aggressive, venture-backed startup team that is changing chip architecture. Must be entrepreneurial, innovative problem solver, willing to work hard and have fun.

As we continue to grow and expand our company, we are hiring for all office locations. You must live near one of our main offices located in: Mountain View (CA), Austin (TX), Chicago (IL) or Vancouver (BC). We offer a flexible work schedule.

You must have US citizenship or permanent residency (“green card”) or hold a current H1-B visa to work in United States.

Flex Logix recruits, employs, trains, compensates and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, veteran status, and other protected status as required by applicable law.
