Senior DFT Engineer to work for an exciting key client of mine over on 6 month fully remote contract.
As part of their ongoing expansion, my client is in need to strengthen their ASIC Implementation team. The ideal candidate will have 5-10 years' experience in Design for Test (DFT) within digital and mixed-signal ASIC/SoC development.

You will be familiar with the challenges of architecting, specifying, and implementing DFT within complex ASIC/SoC designs, most of which include power management, memories, and Analog IP elements such as PLLs, ADC/DAC, and SerDes PHY's. You will also have experience with automatic and manual test-pattern generation flows, fault coverage analysis, and MBIST implementation.

IR35: OUTSIDE IR35 (For UK applicants)
Location: Fully Remote
Length: 6 Months (Extension likely)

Key Skills

  • 5-10 years' experience in industry with a strong track record in DFT gained across several successful ASIC projects, and ideally at process nodes down to and including 16FF
  • Specific skills in DFT implementation:
  • Specification at the architecture level
  • Implementation using tool-based and hand-crafted methods
  • Integration of IP including CPU's, Analog Macros, and IO PHYs
  • MBIST and memory repair integration
  • Coverage analysis and improvement to meet targets
  • ATPG, as well as manual and semi-automatic TPG, including simulation-based methods
  • Implementation of at-speed test methodologies
  • DFT for power-managed designs
  • Generation of STA and scenario/mode constraint
  • Knowledge of the full Synopsys or Mentor Tessent DFT tool kit(s) would be advantageous, including the use of LEQ, simulators, and STA tools for verification.
  • Working knowledge of the complete SoC design flow and associated tools and methodologies to deliver working silicon
  • Experience of RTL and gate-level simulation as applied to DFT verification
  • VHDL/Verilog coding skills

My client will be looking to review CVs during the over the next few weeks and will hold a one stage interview over the phone.
