SoC Power Verification Engineer
Do you love crafting elegant solutions to highly complex challenges? Are you a big-picture visionary who understands how each element affects all the others? At Apple, our Architecture group is responsible for connecting our hardware and software into one unified system. Join this team, and you’ll collaborate with engineers across Apple to design how all of our technologies work in unison. You’ll drive development of our renowned system-on-a-chip architecture for platform power. The main responsibility of this role is to drive the SOC power optimization and verification for very power efficient products. Working with architects to determine the power sensitive use-cases to simulate. Ability to build power aware tests and modify functional tests to verify power targets. Building test cases within the design verification team's environment. Working with logic teams to determine the correct functionality or enhance functionality for power reduction. Work with Performance Architects to specify the power use cases scenarios and how to apply and verify them in design verification environment. Craft a power-aware, power feature verification plan to be used by design verification team, with ability to debug and modify the tests to meet power coverage plan. Define coverage and success criteria for power verification tests.
