Design Verification Engineer



The Design Verification Engineer will be responsible for verification of digital designs for CMOS integrated circuits, including systems-on-chip with multiple CPUs, and digital signal processors, dedicated DSP hardware, and other digital logic for automotive radio applications.

Specific Responsibilities:

  • Verification planning, environment, test-bench, test-cases, and self-checking development.
  • Develop verification methodology for design/mixed-signal and implement verification IP.
  • Develop SystemVerilog/Verilog-AMS models for analog circuits to enable efficient full chip functional verification.
  • Work closely with Design Team and participate in specification/design review meetings with Design and Verification Engineers.
  • Investigate RTL or transistor-level design to debug and propose solutions.


The Design Verification Engineer must be an engineer with experience developing new CAD flows from synthesis to place/route to physical verification. A deep knowledge of low power CAD techniques is extremely important.

Specific Experience:

  • 5-10 year experience with design or mixed-signal verification.
  • Proven experience developing verification test-bench, test-cases, and self-checking.
  • Familiar with verification language and simulation tools (SystemVerilog/ UVM/ Incisive/ Xcelium/ Makefiles, etc.).
  • Experience with assertion-based verification.
  • Knowledge of one of the scripting languages: Python, Perl, TCL.
  • Knowledge of mixed-signal design and behavioral modeling of analog blocks is a plus, or a strong desire to learn.
  • Good interpersonal skills to work at a cross-functional team.
  • Good verbal and written communication skills in English.

Key Personal and Professional Attributes:

Ambiq management is building a company that values continued technology innovation, a fanatical attention to customer needs, collaborative decision making, and, above all, enthusiasm for energy efficiency. The incoming candidate should embrace these same values. The successful candidate must be self-motivated, extremely creative, and should be comfortable learning exciting new technologies. This is an opportunity for growth and an opportunity to work on complex, interesting, and challenging projects.
