Job Description

This is a challenging and multi-faceted Emulation Engineer position at Intel to envision, define, and deliver Silicon Prototyping Models for Intel's cutting-edge IP.

You will be responsible to deliver emulation/Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) models rendered from Register Transfer Level (RTL) on emerging Intel designs by employing skills in emulation/FPGA synthesis, partitioning, and routing tools.

You will collaborate as One Intel with design, system validation, and software/firmware teams to establish prototyping models that enable System Validation, Software Validation, and Design Validation to run as much validation content as possible in Pre-Silicon.

You will contribute hardware and software collaterals required to integrate IP prototyping solutions that enable debug of Intel Silicon designs prior to fabrication.

You innovate to define and deliver new capabilities, processes, and HW/SW tools which deliver acceleration of RTL and improve emulation/FPGA model usability for Pre-Silicon and Post-Silicon functional validation and provide guidance to Pre-Silicon Validation teams to optimize validation environments, test execution, and influence development methodologies for increased productivity.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate the following skills:

  • Team player, very proactive, and self-motivated.

  • Verilog, VHDL - coding and verification.

  • RTL logic design.

  • Logic synthesis.

  • Working knowledge of logic design principles, power/timing effects.

  • Develop system level test suites suitable for execution on emulators.

  • Develop emulation tools such as debugger and monitor features.

  • Integration of acquired IP blocks into synthesized design.


Relevant experience can be obtained through schoolwork, classes, project work, internships, and/or military experience. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.


Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related field.

Minimum Qualifications

4+ years of relevant experience, experience should include:

  • ASIC (Logic/RTL Design) and/or FPGA prototyping.

  • Simulation environments/tools for debug (e.g. VCS, ModelSim, Quartus, Vivado, etc.).

  • FPGA prototyping, silicon verification, and/or system validation.

Preferred Qualifications

Experience in one or more of the following is considered a plus:

  • 10+ years of relevant experience.

  • Experience mentoring other emerging engineers and/or a technical lead.

  • Mapping complex SoC design into multi-FPGA platforms and hands on experience with industry prototyping systems (e.g. Zebu, Veloce, HAPS 80, Palladium, or related).

  • C/C++/GDB/Python/Perl/TCL.

  • Experience with pre-Silicon prototyping tools, flows and methodologies (Vivado, Quartus, ProtoCompiler, VPS).

  • Experience with industry standards and bus protocols: PCIe, Eth, SPI, I2C, AMBA.

  • Experience with OVM/UVM Based Verification.

  • Experience with Simics Model development for Hybrid/Virtual Platform.
