DFT Engineer- Chips


We are looking for a DFT Engineer with Chip experience

Qualification/Experience/Skills Required
  • 7+ years of hands-on experience with DFT and test flow with commercial EDA tools (Synopsys, Mentor) for large and complex SoCs.
  • Strong fundamental knowledge of DFT techniques include JTAG, ATPG, test pattern translation, yield learning, logic diagnosis, Scan compression, IEEE 1500 Std. and MBIST, LBIST. Experience with Synopsys DFT Complier, Tetramax and VCS is required.
  • Experience with TestMaxDFT, SMS, TestMaxAdvisor tool suite is a plus.
  • Experience in RTL simulation, synthesis, Linting, CDC checks, STA, DFT, quality metrics
  • Hands-on expertise in writing System Verilog
  • Hands-on in Perl/Tcl/Python/Unix scripting
  • Excellent analytical, and problem-solving skills

Roles & Responsibilities
  • Provide SoC (top) level constraints and partitions for RTL/Logic designers, floorplan & PD engineers, DFT requirements
  • Perform top/block-level DFT insertion including scan compression, boundary scan, JTAG, IEEE 1500 wrapper, MBIST, LBIST, ATPG and pattern simulation.
  • Verify DFT circuitry and interface with other blocks, debug timing simulation issues.
  • Closely work with physical design team to generate and validate timing constraints.
  • Be able to quickly understand problem statements and innovate solutions for DFT, diagnosis and yield learning.
  • Be able to work independently and own the complete task from DFT specification to final pattern delivery for sub-system and/or SOC.
  • Working closely with synthesis, STA, PD and DFT teams to meet all functional requirements, performance, power and area goals, functional and diagnostics test coverage
