DFT Engineer



Weekly Hours: 42
Role Number:200000176
Will you help us design future generations of revolutionary Apple products? Are you an engineer with a strong foundation and real passion for building new technologies? Do you have track record leading DFT efforts for complex chip designs? Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, new ideas have a way of becoming excellent products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Every single day, people do amazing things at Apple. Do you want to impact billions of users by developing extraordinary products with a prime focus on accuracy and performance of the product? You will become part of a hands-on development team that furthers engineering excellence, creativity and innovation. Dynamic, inspiring people and innovative technologies are the norm here. We want you to join our team if you are an innovative engineer with the dream to research and develop solutions that do not yet exist. In this highly visible role, you will be at the centre of a System-on-Chip design effort. collaborating with all disciplines, with a critical impact on getting functional products to millions of customers quickly.


Lead the complete DFT solutions in a chip design by working with chip DFT team to document DFT specifications, and define the SoC test interface Develop and implement DFT architecture Work with the validation team to verify DFT implementations and implement design changes Generate structural test vectors, analyze and improve coverage Work with designers on STA, physical, power and logical issues Work with Test Engineers to bring up test vectors on silicon.
