Intel SoC DFT Design Engineer in Fort Collins, Colorado

Job Description

Seeking candidates for Design for Test (DFT) Engineering role at an SoC Organization. The successful candidate will be contributing to achieving high DFT coverage across IPs and SoCs to achieve low DPM through quality ATPG content generation and being able to quickly contribute to DFT network integration in large, complex IPs or SOCs and be able to verify the same. The role is within a SoC organization, comprising varied IP, with both front end and back end opportunities in varied designs, across geographical boundaries.

In this role responsibilities include, although not limited to:

  • Understand scan architecture of complex designs; DFT architectures and their relationships with clocks, resets, debug, and power

  • Responsible for evaluating design readiness for scan insertion through RTL and physical design Scan DRC tools

  • Integration and verification of DFT fabrics and IP within Subsystems

  • Running and evaluating scan insertion through synthesis tools and refining scan insertion recipe for maximum coverage

  • Run ATPG analysis to ensure quality scan chain construction and meeting basic coverage goals

  • Creating ATPG content for use in post-Si testing and validating that content through gate level simulation

  • Array Test implementation and verification

  • Must collaborate with circuit physical design team, ATPG team, and manufacturing team to facilitate high quality scan coverage in silicon

  • Work with the tool methodology teams on defining and regressing the tool flows

In addition to the qualifications listed below, the ideal candidate will also have:

  • Ideal candidate is a self-starter, willing to organize complex issues and drive them to closure

  • Candidate can multitask and prioritize

  • Candidate is willing to mentor and lead junior engineers
