Role Number: 200292963
In this highly visible role, you will perform lab characterization and validation of integrated circuits; and you will collaborate with many subject areas to launch the world's premiere mobile computing chips.
- The ideal candidate should be experienced in test development, debug, and reporting that includes device tests and script development, Python preferred. Understands the use of electronic measurement equipment, use of data analysis platforms and databases and testing/characterizing data converters, clock generation and timing, I/O, time and frequency domain measurements. Experience in testing/characterizing control loops for various voltage regulator topologies (LDOs, bucks, multi-phase bucks). Prior or current lab work including soldering/instrumenting systems for test or debug. Matlab/DSP experience is a plus. Additionally, initiative taking ownership of responsibilities, being productive, meeting tight deadlines
- strong written and verbal communication skill. Detail oriented and places high emphasis on quality of work: should self-check scripts, test patterns, and reports are all huge plus.
We are a building a team responsible for Bench test, debug, and characterization of embedded on-chip circuits (PLLs, DLLs, clocks, memory interfaces, and I/Os) In-system PI/SI measurements for correlating with simulation models Debug compliance test failures of standard interfaces (USB, MIPI, DisplayPort) Setup, debug, and maintain lab system test environment Develop of bench top characterization tests exercising on-chip circuits through a combination of FPGA, JTAG, and analog interfaces We develop and execute scripts to automate tests, extract and store results, and generate reports using database and analysis tools We prepare reports related to characterization and debug We work closely with chip design teams, system HW and SW design teams, Test engineering, and Product Engineering.
