Work Experience:

ASIC Verification Engineer – Synapse Business System (Jun/2014 – Jun/2016)

Created UVM environment, registering all the UVM component items UVM Object items to factory, creating master agent, slave agent, Driver, Monitors, scoreboard. Passing transaction items through TLM port from Sequencer to Driver and passing Transaction to DUT via Virtual Interface and checking/comparing output result from input/output monitor to scoreboard via analysis port.

Created UVM test benches and environment. Direct Test were used to check the hard corner cases and Constrained random variables were used to cover most verification Space. Score boards were used to compare in and out of order transactions. Functional coverage was used to verify the functionality of Design under Test.

Writing direct testbench, self-checking testbench, constrained random testbench in Verilog/ System Verilog

UVM test cases with sequences and Factory methods to create modular and reusable test bench components

Created UVM components and test cases to separate structural from behavioral for reuse. Constrained random stimulus were created, sequences to stimulate the DUT. Driver and Sequencer were synced with the TLM

Scoreboard was used for self-checking along with assertions to check corner cases. ASIC Design Verification Engineer - Verifast (Aug/2018 – Aug/2019)

My work was related in designing the DUT and develop the hardware and writing the test fixture, writing multiple test cases to check and verify the functionality of the design and debugging the scripts.

Experience in Implementing test bench, self-checking, direct testbench in Verilog and system Verilog also worked independently to debug the RTL and find the bugs by creating multiple test cases.

Creating System Verilog Environment with Generator, Driver, Input/output Monitor, creating scoreboard, Transacting packets from Generator to Driver via Mailbox and checking the results in Scoreboard

Cross check the behavior of the DUT by looking at waveform and rerun the test cases to check and verify the behavior of the design.

Introducing bugs in the design and checking the functionality and behavior of our DUT ACADEMIC PROJECT:
