What You'll Do

As a member of Cisco’s Central DFT team, you’ll be responsible for architecting, implementing and verifying the ASIC Design-for-Test (DFT) features that support silicon screening, in-system test, debug and diagnostics. You will drive DFT post-silicon feature validation and be a key interface to our ATE Test team. You’ll be responsible for the development of innovative DFT IP in collaboration with the Central Hardware Group to functionally test ASICs in the system that have a focus on debug-capability and fault isolation, including functional traffic test IP development. You’ll work closely with the ASIC design teams to enable the integration and validation of the Test logic in all phases of the design and back-end implementation flow.   You will interface with our ASIC vendors and drive Cisco’s DFT requirements. You will be responsible for inventive DFT for new silicon device models, including silicon photonic chipsets, bare die, stacked die and 2.5D and 3D and driving re-usable test and debug strategies.   This is a hands-on technical lead position spanning the entire product life cycle.

Who You'll Work With

You will collaborate with ASIC design teams in the Central Hardware Group, board/system hardware engineers in various business units, peer groups of packaging, ATE testing, component engineering and New Product introduction engineers. You’ll work with our third-party ASIC vendors who manufacture our silicon.  As a member of this team you will be involved in creating cutting edge next generation networking chips and driving DFT quality throughout the entire implementation flow.

Who You Are

You are an ASIC Design for Test(DFT) engineer with 7+ years of experience including:

Excellent knowledge of latest state-of-the-art trends in DFT and test.

Hands-on design and verification experience with JTAG protocols, Scan and BIST architectures, including Logic BIST, memory BIST, IO BIST

Verification skills include, System Verilog, UVM, Logic Equivalency checking and validating the test-timing of the design.
