Job Posting Title
Analog - Mixed Signal Design Verification Engineer

Job Description
As a global semiconductor company operating in 35 countries, Texas Instruments (TI) is first and foremost a reflection of its people. From the TIer who unveiled the first working integrated circuit in 1958 to the more than 30,000 TIers around the world today who design, manufacture and sell analog and embedded processing chips, we are problem-solvers collaborating to change the world through technology. Put your talent to work with us – change the world, love your job!

About the job:
• Develop and execute detailed pre-silicon Verification plans using product specifications, inputs from engineers/customers, and by working closely with systems engineers to cover all the Analog and Digital functionality/features of a power management/LDO chip
• Understanding of basic analog building blocks and mixed signal blocks like amplifiers, current and voltage references, oscillators, error-amplifiers, startup circuitry, LDO’s, input/output cells, filters, power on resets, over-voltage and over-current protection circuitry, thermal protection circuitry required
• Develop SystemVerilog chip-level test-cases and behavioral models for analog blocks based on the verification plan
• RTL and Gate level regression, with timings for all the corners
• Ability to run an automated / regression based DV suite and extract key measurements based on automatic extractors for a device like a LDO
• Work closely with design and systems teams to review/close spec gaps and design bugs, as they arise.
• Implement mixed-signal test-benches in Cadence Virtuoso and/or Verilog-AMS to apply stimulus and check for pass/fail criteria
• Implement automatic checks and measurements/extractors to verify DUT behavior and populate a Spec Compliance Matrix(SCM)
• Drive new and improved methodologies where needed, work with the EDA team to upgrade DV tools and flows.
• Incorporate code-coverage, functional coverage, assertions, cover-groups etc to achieve 100% verification completeness prior to tape-out.
• Participating in design reviews and creating the necessary design verification and product documentation
• Work with test engineers/designers to come up with optimized DFT techniques

Basic Qualifications:
-Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or related field
-Good grasp of analog design and digital design fundamentals and be able to apply this knowledge to the full chip verification of a mixed signal IC
-Experienced in usage of Cadence Virtuoso tool set and SystemVerilog for
Design Verification
-1+ year of related experience in design/design verification
-Strong hands on working experience in Analog / digital verification for
Mixed-signal chips
-Good in verification approach, flow, concepts.
-Ability to write an exhaustive chip level verification plan from the specs
-Excellent debugging skills
-Understanding of basic analog circuit design blocks used in LDO's in
addition to digital design concepts
-Ability to work independently and be a self- driven/motivated person
-Strong written and verbal communication skills
-Good team player

Preferred Qualifications:
• Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering or related field
• 3-5 years of prior work experience
• Experience with UART, SPI, I2C communication protocols
• Experience in random/constrained random verification
• Hands-on Experience with all Cadence simulation tools (design,
verification, layout) and debug tools
