    Job Description

    About the team

    The Systems group at Arm develops high performance system components like interconnects, memory management units, and interrupt controllers, and combines these with the Arm CPUs to create fit-for-purpose compute sub-systems targeting different market segments.

    Within Arm’s Systems group, the System Level Verification team located at Bangalore is responsible for pre-silicon stress verification of sub-systems built with the latest Arm CPUs and system components - on hardware acceleration platforms like Emulators and FPGA, using bare metal and RIS (Random Instruction Sequence) based verification methodologies.

    About the role

    As a Senior Engineer in the System Level CPU Verification team, you will have the opportunity to lead the pre-silicon verification effort for the latest Arm CPUs in a system context. You will be responsible pushing Arm CPUs to their functional limits – targeting the CPUs internal microarchitecture, as well as their interaction with other system components.

    System level verification requires comprehensive knowledge of both hardware and software – which you will be able to develop in this role, and apply the same on verification tasks. This knowledge will be useful to come up with the right verification plan for bug hunting, as well as to debug complex functional issues in the CPU as well as the system around it. So, if you have a good understanding of either the CPU or SoC architecture, and have experience verifying either of them, you will be the right match.

    The role also involves working on industry-standard emulators from major EDA vendors. Emulators have matured over the years as a reliable verification platform. They help accelerate the verification environment far beyond software simulator speed, and at the same time supporting routine debug tools like assertions, triggers, and full waveform dump of the design to help faster debug.

    If you are a self-driven professional with good leadership skills, looking to work in a collaborative, growing, and dynamic environment, fond of debugging, and would like to work with cross-site IP teams, then this is the role for you!

    What will I be accountable for?

    • Taking ownership of the      functional stress verification of Arm CPUs at a system level – by discussing      requirements with stakeholders, creating test plans, developing stimulus      that target verification corner-cases, and working towards achieving      verification goals for each product milestone.
    • Responsible for debugging      complex hardware & software failures and narrow it down to software or      hardware issues using emulator or FPGA platform. This requires detailed      understanding of the System and Arm CPU architecture.
    • Proactively learning      latest Arm technology and keeping up to date with the progress on the new      technologies.
    • Seeking support from peers      and cross-site teams, and collaborate to make successful deliveries

    Job Requirements

    Qualifications & Experience

    • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Engineering – Electronics, Computers, Embedded, VLSI, and related fields. Other science graduates with relevant experience would be considered.
    • 4 to 7 years of industry experience in pre-silicon verification of SoC, CPU, or other System IP

    Essential Skills

    • Good understanding of CPU or SoC architecture – and related verification experience
    • Deep understanding of digital design concepts and verilog coding
    • Good understanding of random verification methodologies
    • Good in logical programming using C/C++/Assembly
    • Excellent problem solving and debugging skills
    • Track record of leading project execution and delivery, individually or in a team

    Desirable Skills

    • Some hands-on experience on hardware acceleration platforms like Emulation and FPGA
    • Understanding of CPU architecture features like caches, virtual memory, coherency and memory ordering will be a plus
    • Knowledge of Arm-based Systems and protocols like AHB, AXI, ACE, or CHI
    • Use of scripting languages like Perl/Python/Shell
    • Knowledge of advance verification techniques like assertions, property checking, formal

    At Arm, we are guided by our core beliefs that reflect our unique culture and guide our decisions, defining how we work together to defy ordinary and shape extraordinary:

    We not I

    • Take daily responsibility to make the Global Arm community thrive
    • No individual owns the right answer. Brilliance is collective
    • Information is crucial, share it
    • Realize that we win when we collaborate — and that everyone misses out when we don’t

    Passion for progress

    • Our differences are our strength. Widen and mix up the pool of people you connect with
    • Difficult things can take unexpected directions. Stick with it
    • Make feedback positive and expansive, not negative and narrow
    • The essence of progress is that it can’t stop. Grow with it and own your own progress

    Be your brilliant self

    • Be quirky not egocentric
    • Recognize the power in saying ‘I don’t know’
    • Make trust our default position
    • Hold strong opinions lightly
