Nvidia is hiring a
Senior ASIC Verification Engineer

China, Shanghai • China, Shanghai • China, Shanghai
Full time

NVIDIA builds the world's largest chips. As the chip size grows larger and larger, power efficiency become more and more important, whether the chip is used in datacenter, in cars, or in PCs. We design a PMU IP starting from 13y ago to help making the chip always working in the best efficient way for both idle scenarios and active scenarios. The PMU IP is composed by a RISC-V core and various of custom designed control logics. The HW logic collects the status from the entire chip, processing the data, and co-work with SW running on the RISC-V core to determine the best operation point. As the PMU design becomes more and more complicated and PMU is used in more and more chips, we are hiring a Senior Verification Engineer to help building a more powerful PMU.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Work with IP/system-level architect to define the fullchip level verification methodology and testplan. Create essential fullchip level tests for both pre-silicon verification and post-silicon silicon bringup test before SW jumps in.

  • Co-work with the IP architect and designer to define the IP verification methodology and test plan. Finishing the IP verification for all new coming features from project to project.

  • Maintain and improve the SV based unit-level TB to be power powerful and efficient. Maintain the regression and run various of sing-off verification checklists.

  • Learn and practise formal verification, and use formal tool to assist simulation to raise the verification quality.

What we need to see:
  • BS with 5y+ or MS with 3y+ working experience.

  • Self-driving, active thinking and problem solving.

  • Solid IC background.

  • Experienced with System Verilog and UVM methodology. Familiar with perl or python script. Familiar with C/C++ coding.

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Have the experience of building a complex TB from scratch.

  • Good at solving environment issues. Like setting up Makefile, solving VCS issue, or solving issues brought by tool updates, etc.

  • Good communication skills. State problem clearly.

  • Excellently oral and written English.
