GPU Graphics Post Silicon Test & Methodology Engineer

Austin, Texas, United States


Role Number:200350411
Do you love creating solutions to highly complex challenges? Do you intrinsically see the importance in every detail? As part of our Silicon Technologies group, you’ll help design and manufacture our next-generation, high-performance, power-efficient processor, large subsystems. You’ll ensure Apple products and services can seamlessly and efficiently handle the tasks that make them beloved by millions. Joining this group means you’ll craft and building the technology that fuels Apple’s devices. Together, we will enable our customers to do all the things they love with their devices. In this role, you will be a multi-functional liaison responsible for Pre-silicon inputs and debug on post-silicon to enable implementation, validation, and improvement of power efficiency in our GPU designs. In this role, you will be involved with enablement and bring-up of the newest technology nodes and projecting Performance, Power and Area for the next generation graphics chips.

Key Qualifications

  • Deep understanding/experience in using DFT - ATPG and BIST to drive Silicon to Design correlation
  • Good understanding of PVT (Process Voltage and Temperature) corners, Guard bands and process of deriving them in silicon
  • Basic understanding of device physics
  • Relevant Perl/Python coding experience
  • Expertise in data analyses using Statistical analyses tools (JMP) with a sound understanding of statistics
  • Deep understanding of STA concepts – explain a PT report
  • Familiarity with failure analyses techniques like emissions, DLS, LVI/LVP is desired
  • Familiarity with test planning is desired
  • Familiarity with IR/IVD analyses to help drive correlation between silicon and design is desired
  • ATE experience is a plus


- Are you a proficient problem solver who thrives under pressure to find creative time critical solutions to chart the future of GPU designs at Apple? If so, we would love to hear from you. - You will isolate post-silicon issues into Test, Process, Design or interactions, drive stop gaps using PFA/EFA, and make corrective actions in future designs. - Ensure manufacturing deliverables for Power/LVcc Design targets and work on power optimization by collaborating with Product and Silicon Validation teams - You will compare and close Post-silicon to Design targets - You will drive GPU inputs into Product, Test and Silicon Validation teams
