Job Description

The Emulation Technology and Collaterals (ETC) team is chartered with driving emulation technology in support of the extensive emulation-based validation initiatives throughout Intel. ETC engineers work at the crossroads of emulation and simulation, software design and hardware design, pre- and post-silicon validation. Therefore, they have unique opportunity for wide contribution and for developing cross-discipline expertise.

  • Develop and support Intel's emulation infrastructure used for creating, running and debugging hybrid emulation models composed of IP RTL, virtual (SW) components, transactors and other collateral elements. Team members define system architecture elements and develop hardware and software collaterals and integrate it with the emulation/FPGA models.

  • Test and debug the emulation/FPGA model and collaterals.

  • Define and develop new capabilities and HW/SW tools to enable acceleration of RTL and improve emulation/FPGA model usability for pre- and post-Silicon functional validation as well as SW development/validation.

  • Develop improvements to usability by RTL validation and debugging of failing RTL tests on the emulation platform.

  • Interface with and provide guidance to pre-Si Validation teams for optimizing pre-Si validation environments, test suites and methodologies for emulation efficiency.

  • Develop and apply automation aids, flows and scripts in support of emulation ease-of-use and improvement of equipment utilization.
