Munich, Bavaria-Bayern, Germany


Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number:200166343
Join a rapidly growing team at our Munich design center. At Apple, new ideas and complex challenges have a way of becoming phenomenal products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. The people who work here have reinvented entire industries with all Apple Hardware products. The same passion for innovation that goes into our products also applies to our practices — strengthening our commitment to leave the world better than we found it. Are you ready to join our team and help us deliver the next groundbreaking Apple products? On the Apple SoC Team, a Graduate DFT Engineer is given the opportunity to work on a chip from its early architectural definition all the way through Silicon bring-up and support of mass production. During this process, DFT engineers are involved in any area needed, spanning from RTL-coding, Synthesis, Memory-BIST implementation and Automatic Test Pattern generation (ATPG). In addition, they participate in the Verification of patterns at all different levels of abstraction (Gate-level, Place and Route, and power aware.) This outstanding graduate opportunity would allow you to get familiar with all aspects of chip development and opens great opportunities to grow within DFT as well as other teams.
