Sr. Principal , ASIC Engineering

ASIC Engineering Bangalore, India


Description

Enphase is looking for experienced SoC Verification engineer to join our newly formed team in Bangalore India. The team is being formed to bring our next generation Control ASIC to production in a 28nM or 22nM technology.  This new ASIC will use the ARM CM4 core, so experience with that core is a must. This new SOC will be integrating safety and security features into this next generation of MCU so a deep understanding of these SoC challenges is required. Similar to many other SOCs, our Control ASIC includes the CPU as mentioned above, a large Analog Front End (AFE) consisting of references, clocks, multiple ADCs, DAC functions, and analog muxes for the needed measurements in the Inverter, a Power Line Communications Modem (PLC), our proprietary Power Production control block and a host of other peripherals.

This position is in our ASIC Engineering Team Reporting to the Senior Director of ASIC Engineering in Bangalore India.

Responsibilities

Working with our Internal/Contract verification resources, IP designers and the Full Chip RTL engineers you will verify the new SOC design. You will also have responsibility set the verification methodology and verify the RTL developed by Enphase engineers and 3rd party IP.

Requirements

Deep understanding and experience in SoC architecture and verification

Specific experience verifying the ARM CM4 and all the surrounding IP, like: AHB, AXI, RAM and ROM controllers, DMA controllers.  As our new MCUs will include security features for the first time, experience with the ARM Protection units is preferred. At minimum, experience with one of the “TrustZone” like IP from other vendors. As these Control ASICs from Enphase contain a large AFE, experience with verifying high speed and high accuracy analog systems with a mixed signal methodology is a must.

Hands-on experience withUVM using SystemVerilog, Coverage driven verification methods, formal verification methods for IP/SoC functional verification is highly preferred.

Knowledge of all the RTL verification methods, Gate level verifications, and mixed signal methodologies.

Experience and ability to bring complex SOCs into production

This position is based in Bangalore

Credentials

Proven track record based on at least 15+ years of experience
