    Job Description

    The GPU Engineering Division require an experienced and highly motivated Emulation Engineer to join a fast growing team and verify our next generation of state of the art GPUs. The team predominantly employs simulation acceleration emulation techniques using SystemVerilog and C++. You will play a key role in the team – both with hands-on project work, creating and deploying new methodologies within the team.

    About the team

    Working in our main office, located in Cambridge within a team that spans three sites across Europe. The team includes design, verification and modelling engineers working on the future of graphics processors. Given the span of the team, there may be opportunity for travel to other sites during your work.

    What will you be accountable for?

    The role covers development and deployment of methodologies as well as direct hands-on test bench development. You will be responsible for:

    • Reviewing and assessing proposed design changes
    • Develop and maintain testbenches across simulation, emulation, FPGA platforms
    • You are expected to investigate and script new emulation specific and optimising existing flows.
    • In-depth knowledge of developing DPI based transactors to link C++ testbenches to emulators.
    • Power and energy calculations from RTL or gate level netlist running on emulators.
    • Developing methodology and deploying within the group and having full ownership of emulation flows.
    • Excellent communication skills to be able to interact and engage with simulation methodology team and FPGA development team.

    Job Requirements

    What skills, experience and qualifications do I need?

    We are considering varying levels of experience as an Emulation Enginer to join a fast-growing team. You will require a consistent track record with simulation or emulation of FPGA development including ownership of a suitably complex IP or SoC environment. Be comfortable using Python along with C++ or SystemVerilog to develop testbenches whilst being familiar with the tools and processes for infrastructure to execute emulation flows. You will need to be capable of developing flows to make the best use of EDA tools across multiple platforms.

    Essential Attributes

    • Strong experience with emulation flows and aligning with simulation and FPGA platforms.
    • Experience of architecting and implementing functional environments for complex IP or SoC’s.
    • Experience developing re-usable and scalable code whilst having good knowledge of synthesis and RTL.
    • Strong scripting skills (UNIX shell scripting, Python or Perl) – being able to develop scripting to support new flows.
    • You posses the ability to quickly understand and apply complex specification details and capable of owning all stages of a project to completion.
    • Willingness to tackle varied and complex technical challenges.
    • Strong communication skills and ability to work well as part of a team as well as experience working and communicating with remote design centres.

    Desirable Attributes

    • Ideally you would have some working knowledge of graphics principles.
    • Any interest in developing system level knowledge of integration large processors into a SoC subsystem
    • Curiosity of how linux systems boot and device drivers get loaded would give you a good advantage working with the team
    • Your background in dealing with software teams you may have gained knowledge of C/C++
    • By interacting or working in verification you could have a grasp of UVM.
    • Do you have a desire to gain more experience with formal verification.
    • SystemVerilog for design & verification in complex design IP or SoC.
    • Willingness to travel to Arm sites within Europe
