Job Type: Permanent

Superb flexible working DFT opportunity for an engineer to join my clients growing ASIC Implementation team.

Flexible working is considered for UK nationals – for EU and non-EU nationals you MUST relocate to the UK.

The ideal candidate will have a strong academic record and 5-10 years’ experience in Design for Test (DFT) within digital and mixed-signal ASIC/SoC development.

You will be familiar with the challenges of architect, specifying, and implementing DFT within complex ASIC/SoC designs, most of which include power management, memories, and Analog IP elements such as PLLs, ADC/DAC, and SerDes PHY’s. You will also have experience with automatic and manual test-pattern generation flows, fault coverage analysis, and MBIST implementation.

The candidate should have customer and supplier-facing experience and excellent communication skills.

Key Tasks / Responsibilities
  • Take full-flow ownership of all DFT, MBIST, and test-pattern generation for complex digital and mixed-signal ASIC designs on an as-needed basis to meet customer project requirements.
  • Setup, run, and maintain EDA tool flows relating to DFT, MBIST, and test pattern generation.
  • Keep up to date with all aspects of ASIC Test methodology and best-practice to ensure that company expertise and services are always current and appropriate for each customer project.
Key skills / Background
  • 1st or 2.1 Electronics, Physics or relevant subject from a Tier 1 group University
  • 5-10 years’ experience in industry with a strong track record in DFT gained across several successful ASIC projects, and ideally at process nodes down to and including 16FF.
Some specific skills in DFT implementation
  • Knowledge of the full Synopsys or Mentor Tessent DFT tool kit(s) would be advantageous.
  • Experience of RTL and gate-level simulation as applied to DFT verification.
  • VHDL/Verilog coding skills
  • Implementation using tool-based and hand-crafted methods.
  • Integration of IP including CPU’s, Analog Macros, and IO PHYs
  • MBIST and memory repair integration

This role will offer a competitive salary, excellent working environment, matched contribution pension scheme, subsidised private healthcare scheme, life assurance and share options scheme.
