Description :

Come join Intel’s Devices Development Group organization as a SoC Design
Engineer focused on Design for Debug (DFD) Validation.

As a member of the product team, you will work firsthand with multi-function
teams/sites, implementing and validating state-of-the-art debug solutions
appropriate for new and existing technology in the product.

* Work as part of a pre-silicon validation team for future Intel SoCs or
IPs, focusing on debug validation
* Work with pre-silicon and post -silicon validation teams to improve debug
features and tools suites
* Work closely with post-silicon validation SW teams on debug tool
validation and silicon enabling
* Pioneering new debug tools and flows, reviewing and publishing
architectural specs and supporting next-generation silicon enabling on
system platforms

* Validation of DFD features (e.g. low & high-bandwidth signal tracing and
event triggering) using simulation, emulation, and/or FPGA
* Creating plans and tests for validating portions of a complex
microarchitecture using written specs, RTL code and other tests as a
* Learning the Power Management, Memory and debug architecture and
microarchitecture by debugging failures to the root cause
* Developing and utilizing various debug and validation tools and/or
methodologies to implement validation plans with the goal being to ensure
a solid design
* Participating in the debug of failures on silicon and developing new
testing strategies to detect these failures on RTL models
* Developing high level (for example, System C) modeling for RTL components
* Developing debugging tools and software

In addition to the qualifications listed below, the ideal candidate will also
demonstrate having a proven record of working across validation teams to solve


You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered
