What you'll be doing:
Developing comprehensive Formal Verification testplan documents.
Coding and debugging Formal Verification environments including environment assumptions, assertions and cover properties in context of the verification plan.
Applying various Formal Verification techniques to proof correctness of digital designs.
Debugging RTL to identify failure scenarios.
Developing scripts to automate the verification process.
Reviewing formal testbenches and proofs with design teams and verification teams.
What we need to see:
Graduating or have recently graduated with a BS/MS/PhD in CS/CE/EE/Mathematics (or equivalent experience).
Hands-on experience with HDLs such as Verilog / SystemVerilog / VHDL.
Strong knowledge of architectures of CPU/GPU designs and digital logic.
Ability to quickly understand and debug RTL descriptions.
Strong structured programming skills is a plus!
Strong analytical skills for solving difficult problems.
Excellent communication skills with ability to work with team members and collaborate effectively.
