Summary

  • Do your life’s best work here – with the whole world watching.
  • Join a rapidly growing team at our UK GPU design center.
  • At Apple, new ideas and complex challenges have a way of becoming phenomenal products,
  • services, and customer experiences very quickly.
  • The Design Verification Engineer will be responsible for the pre-silicon RTL verification of blocks
  • in low-power embedded graphics cores.
  • This includes a deep understanding of the micro-architectural details of their block and how it works within the broader GPU design. A strong computer architecture background, preferably in graphics, and a strong foundation in verification methodology will be used to close testing coverage with high confidence.

Key Qualifications

  • Expertise with verification languages such as SystemVerilog, Specman, or Vera and verification methodologies such as UVM/OVM is a plus.
  • Experience working in complex ASIC or SOC designs
  • Expertise with HDL simulators and waveform viewers
  • Experience defining coverage space, writing coverage models, analyzing results
  • Experience working under strict schedule deadlines with the ability to handle multiple priorities
  • Graphics architecture and programming (OpenGL/OpenCL) is highly desired. Strong knowledge of computer architecture, general purpose microprocessor, and memory sub-system micro-architecture in lieu of graphics experience.
  • Experience with scripting languages like Python, Go, Perl, or Ruby is a plus
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to collaborate

Description

  • Use SystemVerilog, UVM, and C++ with industry-leading simulation tools and methodologies to verify complex GPU designs.
  • Develop verification plans in coordination with design leads and architects
  • Create and maintain verification test bench components and environments
  • Generate directed and directed random tests
  • Run simulations and debug design and environment issues
  • Build functional coverage points, analyze coverage, and improve the test environment to target coverage holes
  • Build automated verification flows for block verification
  • Work with other block and core level engineers to ensure a seamless verification flow

Education & Experience

  • BS/MS CE or EE
