Job Description

Core Responsibilities:

As an emulation support engineer you will be involved in developing, implementing and deploying simulation acceleration and emulation using Synopsys ZeBu-S3, Cadence palladium Z1. Create synthesizable/emulate-able models for some modules of the system. Develop methodology/tool flow for running system tests/SW applications/boot OS on emulator. Use emulator effectively to test various areas of the chip using simulation acceleration, coverage, and power aware emulation. Help reproduce post-silicon failures on emulator and help with reproduction of failures in emulator on simulation. Closely work with RTL/verification/design/SW engineers for debug and root-cause. Develop and debug related RTL models, assertions, collateral.


Minimum BS (EE or CS) required with over 7 years relevant experience.


Engineer must work at our Sunnyvale facility, unless he/she has special needs.

What to look for in trying to match resumes:

? Experience working as a RTL designer

? Experience working with any emulator (Palladium, Zebu, Veloce or their predecessors – you can find these names from Synopsys/Cadence/Mentor Graphics web-sites)

? Experience with scripting work (regression infrastructure)

? Debug experience (waveforms/Verdi)
