Job description

  • Responsible for scan insertion, boundary scan, MBIST, ATPG for ultra-low power SoC based on subthreshold operation using standard EDA tools.

  • Develop and implement low-power DFT architecture and infrastructure.

  • Generate structural test vectors, analyze and improve coverage, test time and test cost.

  • Perform pre/post-layout scan and MBIST simulations.

  • Work with designers on STA, physical, power and logical issues related to DFT.

  • Work with test engineers to bring up test vectors on silicon.


  • BS/MS in ECE/EE and at least 10 years of experience in DFT implementation.

  • Skilled in different types of DFT structures, including scan (Stuck-At, At-Speed, Path-Delay), scan compression, boundary scan and MBIST.

  • Experience in creating and implementing hierarchical DFT architecture in complex SoC.

  • Experience in Low-Power DFT and MBIST.

  • Experience in test time and test coverage analysis for scan and MBIST patterns.

  • Experience with working with test engineering team to bring up production test program.

  • Extensive knowledge of timing concepts and constraint development.

  • Experience in developing scan ATPG and MBIST test benches and simulation in pre/post-layout environments.

  • Experience in RTL is required.

  • Experience in scripting like Tcl is preferred.

  • Experience with GLS (gate level simulation) is preferred.

  • Motivated, self-driving engineer with attention to detail.

  • Strong verbal and written English communication skills.
