Job Description

Seize the opportunity to work with the team responsible for providing technical leadership in the development of high-quality and feature-rich chipset products for PCs millions of people around the world will use. As part of the global Chipsets Silicon Group (CSG) within Silicon Engineering Group, you will be responsible for the Design-for-X (Test, Debug, Manufacturing) definition, implementation, and verification for Chipset products.
As a Chipsets System on a Chip (SoC) DFx Design Engineer, a typical day may include but is not limited to:
DFx Scan Design Engineer
  • Overseeing the Scan/ATPG definition, design, verification, and documentation for SoC development.
  • Determining Scan architecture design, logic design, and system simulation.
  • Defining module interfaces/formats for simulation.
  • Performing logic design for integration of cell libraries, functional units, and subsystems into SoC full chip designs, RTL coding, and SoC simulation.
  • Contributing to the development of multidimensional designs involving the layout of complex integrated circuits.
  • Performing all aspects of the SoC design Scan flow such as coverage analysis, setup and debug Spyglass-DFT or other ATPG tools, generating ATPG patterns via Mentor Graphic Tessent or other equivalent tools, RTL and GLS test validation to ensure quality design, debug and root cause stuck at and at speed failure using Mentor GLS testbench in Synopsys VCS tools, and validate chain test in the serial testbench.
  • Driving post-Silicon High Volume Manufacturing (HVM) Team partnership to enable Scan DFT test capability.
  • Collaborating with various stakeholders in architecture, IP, structural design, SoC RTL, and post-silicon teams.
  • Reviewing vendor capability to support development.

DFx Micro-Architect
  • Drive product early technical readiness (TR), which require understanding customer requirement and planning for design definition solution.
  • Close handshake with DFx RTL design and Pre-Silicon Validation team to ensure the quality of DFx feature implementation.
  • Knowledge and hands-on experience with peripheral protocols such as I/O design protocols (SATA, PCIe, USB, and others) is an added advantage.

DFx RTL Design Engineer
  • Perform DFx logic design RTL coding and integration into the Chipset SoC.
  • Review and fix the DFx logic design to ensure all signal/clock connection, timing and etc. meet the design specifications with zero design errors.
  • Knowledge and hands-on experience with MemoryBIST design is an added advantage.
  • Strong communication skills to collaborate with geo-diverse teams (IP, SoC, Structural Design, IP, post-silicon manufacturing) to analyze, debug, root cause, and fix all DFx design issues.

DFx Pre-silicon Validation Engineer
  • Understand Design-for-Debug (DFD), Design-for-Test (DFT), Design-for-Manufacturing (DFM) or Design-for-Validation (DFV) features through design specs.
  • Develop and document test plans and test sources.
  • Ensure all the RTL designs are being validated well to eliminate design flawless to customer.
  • Perform test verification and enhancement to ensure design quality and robustness.
  • Drive test review with counterparts such as Pre-Silicon SoC, IP design, Post-Silicon Manufacturing, Board Design, and other teams.
  • Take ownership and partner with the Manufacturing and Validation team to enable the post-silicon defect screening, burn-in, and system validation.
  • Knowledge and hands-on experience in DFx test environment is an added advantage.

You are:
  • An excellent communicator
  • Extremely organized
  • A team player who loves to collaborate
  • A strong technical leader who communicates well with great influencing skills
  • Passionate for design/tools and methodology
  • Someone who meets their commitments

If your skillsets align with our needs, we will provide you with a great path to maximize your positive impact on the world.


Bachelor/Master of Engineering or Science degree in Electronic, Electrical, or Computer Engineering.
At least 4 years of working experience.
Additional qualifications include:
  • Familiar with UNIX, and well-versed in Verilog or C Programming.
  • Knowledge of RTL integration and validation methodologies.
  • Knowledge in Design-for-X (DFx), where X is Test (DFT), Debug (DFD), Manufacturing (DFM) or Validation (DFV).
  • Familiar with Scan design, methodology, coverage analysis, and test validation.
  • Ability to communicate well with counterparts and key stakeholders including cross-site partners.
