Job Description:


Join us and help put Wi-Fi® in everything from cell phones to TVs, and laptops to routers. The company's Wireless Networking team is seeking an IC design Verification engineer to work on our next generation 802.11ax medium access controller.


You will work on developing the MAC to support the higher bandwidths required by the new standard, to reduce power consumption to meet the needs of battery-power mobile platforms, and to enhance the feature set to support the growing number of applications that use our Wi-Fi® chips.


Your primary job responsibility is to establish/enhance the verification methodology for unit-level MAC layer simulation and extend the methodology to SoC level simulation environments. In this role you will be architecting and implementing the infrastructure including test-benches, APIs, golden reference models, 802.11ax specific protocol layer generators and checkers. You will also be responsible for establishing metrics and implementing tests for functional correctness, coverage, and performance characterization.


Typically requires a BSCS/BSEE degree and 15 years of related experience, an MSCS/MSEE degree and 12+ years of related experience

Experience building UVM based verification environments – unit-level and SoC - for 802.11, Ethernet or other networking designs
