Intel SoC Design Engineer - Scan Validation in Hillsboro, Oregon

Job Description

Come join Intel's Client Engineering Group, responsible for designing Client SoCs that make up more than half of Intel's annual revenue. We envision the future of computing and design for the next generation of laptops and desktop computers.

We are looking for a SoC (System on Chip) Scan Validation Engineer ready to research, design, develop, and test lead Intel designs as we re-imagine how to build SoCs at Intel and in the semiconductor industry. This role is within Intel's highly-regarded Devices Development Group, headquartered in Portland, Oregon with additional sites in Austin, Texas, and Penang, Malaysia. Our bold purpose as a company is to "create world-changing technology that enriches the lives of every person on earth" and this role is instrumental in furthering our mission to shape the future of technology.

As a member of the product team, you will work firsthand with multi-function teams/sites, implementing and validating state-of-the-art Scan solutions. In this role you will:

  • Work as part of a pre-silicon validation team for future Intel SoCs or IPs

  • Focus on scan validation and scan enabling on silicon.

  • Work with pre-silicon and post -silicon validation teams to improve scan features, tools and silicon enabling times.

  • Work closely with post-silicon product engineers on scan pattern validation and silicon enabling.

  • Pioneer new tools and flows, reviewing and publishing architectural specs and supporting next-generation silicon enabling.

Your responsibilities may include but will not be limited to:

  • Clock validation to ensure all clocks are enabled and at the correct frequencies for at-speed scan testing

  • Enabling full chip GLS models and validating scan patterns to ensure content works on first silicon

  • Scanning isolation validation to ensure scan doesn't break functionally required modes like PLLs, power gates, etc.

  • Creating detailed scan test plans and tests using written specs, RTL code and other tests as a guide

  • Validating and enabling scan dump on system boards

  • Participating in the debug of failures on silicon and developing new testing strategies to detect these failures on RTL models

The ideal candidate will also exhibit a willingness to work across design and validation teams to solve problems.
