April 17, 2023
Posted: Dec 20, 2022
Role Number: 200451812
Do you have a passion for invention and self-challenge? Do you thrive on pushing the limits of what's considered feasible? As part of our team, you will be responsible for and contribute to verifying high-throughput, complex cellular baseband modems and transceiver link controllers: You will be crafting highly reusable premier UVM test benches, implementing coverage driven and directed test cases working with cross functional teams, deploying new tools and methodologies to improve quality of tape-out readiness. By collaborating with other product development groups across Apple, you'll push the industry boundaries of what cellular systems can do and improve the product experience for our customers across the world! You will be able to learn different aspects of cellular protocol, different complex IPs and Sub-system architectures, different fabric protocols and architecture, best in class DV methodology, co-verification with models and FW, industry standard low-power architecture and complex debug architectures, etc. You will have a dedicated/hands-on ASIC DV experience in reusable verification methodology such as UVM or OVM. As a Design Verification Engineer in our team, you are at the center of the verification effort within our silicon design group! You will be designing and productizing state-of-the-art cellular baseband modems and RF link controllers targeted for SOCs. You are responsible for high quality verification of different complex IPs and Sub-System designs by working closely with cross-functional teams. You are expected to adapt to evolving requirements, do detail test planning and develop re-usable verification environments to achieve quality goals.
