The ideal individual must have:

•Prepare and implement a robust end to end / comprehensive RTL verification test plan for IP verification and FPGA rapid prototyping.
•Develop any needed verification /regression enabling automation tools / methods / flows as needed.
•Be familiar with SerDEs architecture implementation and prepare and implement IP/sub system level test bench along with relevant test cases (directed / randomized)with appropriate assertions and drive to meet set coverage goals.
•Be familiar with RAL standards for register validation.
•Be familiar with NLP flows for UPF based low power verification and GLS flows.
•Be familiar with verification of industry standard micro controllers like Xtensa u controllers which are used for high speed channel receiver adaptation / calibration.
•Set clear expectations of coverage metrics vis-a-vis code coverage / functional / feature driven coverage and drive to achieve the same.
•Possess sharp test content creation, debugging skills and file for bugs and close on them in a timely fashion.
•Work with cross functional teams on enabling FPGA prototypes for emulation and or post silicon debug.
Required Experience:

•Bachelor/Master/Phd in Electronics/Electrical Engineering with 4+ years of experience in SerDes RTL/AMS verification experience.
•Experience in IP level and sub-system level verification on protocols like PCI-E Gen1/2/3/4, USB 3.0/31, SATA 1/2/3 is a must.
•Must have experience in creating and executing a robust verification test plan.
•Must have relevant experience in enabling and verifying controller interoperability testing at sub system level.
•Relevant experience in verification of protocols like UFS Gear 1/2/3/4 is a strong plus.
•Must be well versed in using advanced verification methodologies like UVM/OVM/VMM/System Verilog, constrained random stimulus generation, assertion based verification and functional coverage techniques.
•Must be well versed in RAL standards, NLP/GLS verification flows.
•Familiarity with RTL design aspects like Physical Coding sub layer, Physical media access blocks in SV or VHDL is a strong plus.
•Basic familiarity with high level advanced receiver adaptation techniques which may include fsm or ucontroller based firm- ware driven equalization is a strong plus.
•Basic Knowledge of real value modelling of channel impulse response for receiver adaptation / equalization verification is a strong plus.
