Qualcomm CDMA Technologies, a.k.a. QCT - http://www.qualcomm.com/qct/, is the world leader in wireless ICs powering the majority of 3G & 4G devices, the largest fabless semiconductor in the world, and is consistently ranked near the top of Fortunes list of 100 Best Companies to Work For. QCT is currently seeking candidates for functional design verification positions at all levels who will be directly involved in the verification of SOC/chip, subsystem, and core/block levels. These cores and subsystems include modem subsystem, peripheral subsystem, high-speed buses (AHB, AXI, OCP, etc.), various peripherals (USB2, USB3, UFS, SDCC, EMAC, SATA, PCIe), security, memory controllers and RISC/DSP processors. SOC level verification encompasses system use cases, concurrency, and performance. As a Functional Verification Engineer, you will be responsible for understanding the expected functionality of designs, developing corresponding test plans, designing and developing components of our verification environment, and applying these to verify complex designs until coverage goals are achieved in order to ensure the continued commercial success of our high-quality products.
As verification is a rapidly changing field and consumes the majority of the design process, developing and deploying new verification methodologies is an essential part of the work you will do. Assertions, simulation, formal verification, HW-SW co-verification and constraint/HVL-based verification are all tools in our verification toolbox you will use on a daily basis.
-Strong critical thinking, problem solving and test planning skills.
-Strong understanding of design and debug skills.
-General knowledge in ASIC design process, digital design, design (hw/sw) verification tools and techniques, computer architecture, etc.
-Familiar with the design and assertion languages: RTL, SystemVerilog, SystemVerilog Assertions (SVA), Vera, e-Specman, VHDL, Verilog, PSL, etc.
-Scripting and automation skills: Unix/Linux shell programming, Perl, Java, Makefile, XML, XML DOM, XPath, XSLT, revision management (e.g. CVS, DesignSync, and Subversion) is a plus.
-Knowledge of wireless/wired communications and protocols is helpful, as are good written and oral communications skills.
-Positions are available at all levels including senior management and technical leadership roles.
Required: Bachelor's, Electrical Engineering
