  • Understanding of Systemverilog, RNM, UDN/UDT/UDR, wreal, Verilog-AMS.
  • Experience in Systemverilog testbench development.
  • Understanding of analog/mixed-signal blocks like Filter, opAmp, ADC, DAC, VCO, A/DPLL, Serdes, etc.
  • Working experience in Cadence Virtuoso Schematic Composer and ADE.
  • Very good understanding of analog, and design background (to analyze verification results) is a strong plus.
  • Experience in writing scripts in languages such as Perl or Python.
  • Business-level at English communication in both speaking and writing.
  • Team spirit, excellent communication skills and the desire to take on diverse challenges.


As a DMS modeling and verification Engineer, you will be responsible for modeling and verifying analog/mixed-signal designs including: - Develop accurate and simulation-efficient analog behavior models for analog/RF hard-IPs in Systemverilog. - Verify those analog behavior models are accurate representations of analog schematics. - Verify analog hard-IPs functionalities against its design specifications using those analog behavior models: for example, coding test scenarios and environments for analog verification and/or assertion. - Plan and execute modeling and functional verification, and document results for formal verification review. - Enhance analog behavior model development methodologies for better accuracy, improved simulation run time, quicker turn-around time.

Education & Experience

BSEE is required, MSEE/PhD in electrical engineering is a plus.
