Qualcomm India Private LimitedJob Area:
Engineering Group, Engineering Group > Hardware Engineering
General SummaryQualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives. But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products. This is the Invention Age - and this is where you come in.
SVE (System Validation & Emulation) team within Bangalore Design Center is responsible for validating hardware solutions and to integrate new hardware (IP cores and SoCs) to maximize software productivity and enable faster time to market. The validation organization is central to minimizing the number of chip turns in products, to the efficient transition of sound and reliable HW to SW organizations, and to the development of new validation methodologies.
Validation team is currently looking for self-motivated engineers at all levels who will perform device level and system level, validation and debug, both in emulation and in post-Silicon.
- Execute the validation plan and methodology of Qualcomm ASICS (System-on-chips) on HW emulators and on Silicon
- Writing and reviewing validation test plans
- Create IP and System validation scenarios
- Development of directed, random, and pseudo-random diagnostics for validation in compliance with Silicon spec and use cases
- Debug of diagnostics on various platforms using JTAG, Logic Analyzers, Oscilloscopes and similar equipment
- Return Material Analysis (RMA) debug and root-cause analysis, System level tests debug
- Interaction with various engineering teams (like system, hardware design and design validation, software engineers, test engineering) in test-environment bring-up & development in order to meet team goals and resolve problems in a timely, effective and professional manner.
Candidate should have 15+ years of relevant experience in SoC Pre and post silicon validation preferably leading overall validation activities (including pre and post silicon),
putting together overall SOC test-plan and driving the team to achieve all the required project milestones, test plan coverage and meeting all the power, performance and quality goals.
ARM System-On-Chip Pre-Silicon emulation and Post-Silicon ASIC Validation experience related to board bring up and system level expertise to drive complex issues debug and root cause analysis.
