Are you an ASIC DFT engineer with 8+ years experience developing test for high volume mass production chips? Do you want to play a key role in building next generation Wi-Fi chips that will truly enable the Internet of Things? Keen to make a real difference in a VC-backed startup and work in a dynamic & fun environment? Then join Australia’s fastest growing semiconductor company based in Sydney. You’ll work with the team that invented Wi-Fi 20 years ago, and help shape the future of Wi-Fi.

We are open to sponsoring a work visa for the right candidate.

Responsibilities include:

  • Chip top DFT architecture and insertion
  • Propose and implement design-for-test structures
  • Ensure industry-standard scan testability (stuck-at, at-speed, compression)
  • Ensure thorough memory BIST solutions
  • Deliver DFT into complex, fast-paced ASIC developments
  • Ensure implementability via synthesis, design integrity with equivalence checks
  • Generate and validate ATPG patterns
  • Deliver ATPG patterns to silicon test team, support pattern bringup on tester
  • Support silicon production fallout analysis

What we’re looking for:

  • 8+ years relevant industry experience
  • MSc in Electrical / Electronics / Communication Engineering or Computer Science
  • A deep understanding of design for test (DFT) fundamentals
  • Complete ASIC DFT system architecture and implementation proficiency
  • Experience ensuring industry-best logic test coverage with synthesis-time inserted scan testability, at-speed clock control solutions
  • Experience with MBIST insertion and validation prior to tapeout
  • Experience with pattern generation (ATPG) for simulation and production
  • Experience validating scan and MBIST implementations in SDF-annotated gatelevel simulations, providing sign-off for tapeout
  • Experience working with silicon test and operations teams to run fallout analysis and root-cause failures
  • Expert with digital simulation environments
  • Experience in HDL languages such as Verilog, SystemVerilog or VHDL 
  • Experience with building testbench infrastructures
  • Experience generating initialization sequences to prepare chip for various test modes
  • Experience running and debugging gate level simulations in post-PnR netlists with SDF annotation, power-aware simulation experience is a plus
  • Experience with JTAG, SDIO, SPI protocols
  • Hands-on experience with Linux development environment staples such as make, shell scripts and Python
  • Experience using the git revision control tool
