Job Description:

**Job Id** E1956639

**Job Title** DFT Engineer

**Post Date** 06/27/2017

**Company-Division** Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies, Inc.

Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies, Inc.

**Job Area** Engineering – Hardware

Engineering – Server

**Location** North Carolina – Raleigh

California – San Jose

**Job Overview** Candidate will be responsible for DFT architecture and test methodology definition, and driving implementation, primarily for Scan-based (ATPG) testing of high-end SoCs. The candidate will perform a technical leadership and innovation role within a team of 10-15 DFT design and ATPG engineers and programmers, to define DFT structures and tool flows needed for testing next-generation high-end server SoC products, and drive their successful implementation. In addition to work within a DFT team, the candidate will work with hardware design teams to ensure successful implementation of various DFT structures in RTL, and with SoC implementation teams including synthesis, physical design, clocking, timing, as well as design verification. The candidate will also work with Product and Test Engineering (PTE) teams to drive successful bring-up of test vectors on ATE platforms. This role will span current as well as future SoC products, and as such the candidates activity will span strategy, design, methodology, and test execution. The candidate will interface with internal tool development teams and will be responsible for driving synergies that facilitate test insertion, clock design, and vector development automation. Finally, the candidate will work with tool vendors, such as Mentor Graphics and Synopsys, to define and integrate tool capabilities (particularly DFT insertion and ATPG) needed to implement and roll out DFT strategies.
