As a CPU Design Verification and Emulation Engineer you will own functional verification for part of a CPU design. You will develop functional verification infrastructure as well as writing diagnostic codes to ensure functional correctness of a design. You will develop test plans for functional units and subsystems. You will work closely with front end design, architecture, and performance teams to ensure architectural compliance, functional correctness, as well as meeting IPC performance goals. You will analyze coverage from various dimensions and develop monitors and checkers for better quality assurance. When necessary, you will utilize formal verification tools and write assertions. You will help port designs to emulation platforms and run functional verification and performance validation using emulation platforms.
