ThinCI Semiconductor - DFT Lead - SoC/ATPG/Timing Closure (8-13 yrs)

Hyderabad Job Code: 354465

DFT - Design for Test [Lead]


Location : Hyderabad


Job Type : Permanent/Fulltime


Job Overview :


- This is a senior technical role responsible for defining the Design for Test (DFT) features for ThinCI's unique IP, Graph Streaming Processor (GSP) and associated SOC.


- ThinCI is a young start-up pioneering in AI area. GSP is highly complex and high throughput IP used for Vision and Machine Learning applications.


- The ideal candidate would drive all DFT/DFx features for the GSP IP and associated SOCs.


- The DFT architect will be a member of the team that plays a significant role in ensuring the quality of next generation GSP processors through structured DFT, Automatic Test Pattern Generation (ATPG) and Logic Built-In Self-Test (LBIST) techniques.


- He/she defines the methodology and interacts heavily with the hardware Architects, Designers and Physical Design teams.


- The Candidate should understand the functional design along with DFT mode operations. DFT architect conducts experiments to improve test coverage, post-silicon debuggability, chip production plan, area/power implications, drives DFT verification.


Desired profile :


- The candidate must have 8+ Years of experience thorough knowledge of DFT basics such as scan insertion, fault models, ATPG, BIST techniques, and on-chip compression techniques that reduce test time and tester memory.


- Experience with test tools such as FastScan and TestKompress is highly desirable.


- Scan/ATPG, knowledge of industry standard DFT features, simulation debug, MBIST, LBIST and Memory repair.


Key responsibilities include :


- Drive and Own in IP/SOC DFT feature and architecture definition


- Responsible for DFT specification generation and review


- Lead SOC DFT function including SCAN, Boundary SCAN, MBIST, LSBIST, Memory test logic.


- Define verification on all DFT structures


- Review DFT related timing constraints and work with Physical Design team for timing closure


- Review generated DFT structural patterns and functional patterns


- Design and implement other DFX (debug, characterization, yield etc) logics


- Interfacing with the design teams to ensure DFT design rules and guidelines are met


- Generating & reviewing high quality manufacturing test patterns for stuck-at, transition fault models and use of on-chip test compression techniques


- Simulating and verifying the ATPG and LBIST patterns


- Working with the product engineering teams on the delivery of manufacturing test patterns


- DFT verification test plan and testcase development


Skill Requirements :


- Familiar with DFT design and working model at JTAG IEEE1149, BC1500;


- Familiar with MBIST insertion and memory repair working strategy;


- Familiar with DFT verification debug and flow maintain;


- Can solve the simulation and flow issue independently;


- Can solve the scan insertion and DRC issue;


- Initiative and enthusiasm and good team player;


- Experience of completing multiple tape outs and exposure to chip bring-up


- Experience working with Systems/Production teams to solve post-issues and improve manufacturing yield


- Communication skills: excellent oral, written and presentation skills.


- Desirable Experience - GPU design, ARM based SOCs, multimedia, bus interface blocks


- Problem Solver and Detail oriented;


Experience :


- 8+ Years working experience in DFT design or DFT verification field;


Qualification : MS/BE degree of EE
