Job Description

You will be part of IPG-ITVG-VICE team. VICE is the Validation IO/IP Center of Excellence at Intel. Our organization validates leading IP technologies in the world (such as PCIe, USB, Thunderbolt/Type-C, Sensors, Audio, Security etc). We use cutting edge FPGA and emulation environments to validate the controllers for SoC/product teams. We also validate IP Subsystem/PHYs on the test chips. Further, we validate IPs and Discrete chips that span across different ISAs (x8086, RISC-V, ARM). We develop IP validation content and firmware to test our IP portfolio that spans client and server segments.

As an FPGA/Emulation engineer you will be developing Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and/or emulation models and solutions for next generation IP technology and SoC designs.  You will work closely with architecture, design, validation and software teams in order to meet project goals.  The responsibilities cover the following:

  • Develop FPGA/emulation models from Register Transfer Level (RTL) designs using FPGA/Emulation synthesis and place and route tools.

  • Design and develop interfaces between FPGA/emulation model to software or external hardware using RTL.

  • Bring up and debug the FPGA/emulation model in simulation and hardware platforms.

  • Develop tests to validate the functionality of the FPGA/emulation model both in simulation using System Verilog and on hardware platform using Python.

  • Develop automation flows to integrate and build FPGA/Emulation models in Linux environment using Python/Tcl/Perl.

  • Communicate with architecture/design/validation/software teams to debug and isolate issues found on the FPGA/emulation models.

What we offer:  

  • We give you opportunities to transform technology and create a better future, by delivering products that touch the lives of every person on earth.  

  • As a global leader in innovation and new technology, we foster a collaborative, supportive, and exciting environment where the brightest minds in the world come together to achieve exceptional results.
