About us:
Aeva’s mission is to bring the next wave of perception to a broad range of applications from automated driving to industrial robotics, consumer electronics, consumer health, security, and beyond. Aeva is transforming autonomy with its groundbreaking sensing and perception technology that integrates all key LiDAR components onto a silicon photonics chip in a compact module. Aeva 4D LiDAR sensors uniquely detect instant velocity in addition to 3D position, allowing autonomous devices like vehicles and robots to make more intelligent and safe decisions.
Role Overview:
Aeva is seeking a DFT engineer with strong experience in DFT design and implementation, Synthesis, and Static Timing Analysis. In this role, you will be responsible for DFT, Synthesis, and Timing analysis of several modules in Aeva digital ASICs.

What you'll do:

  • Implement DFT methodologies and designs including JTAG, Scan, and Memory BIST at module and chip levels.
  • Work closely with designers to enable designs to be DFT-friendly on modules and sub-systems. Help identify and fix design issues to enable smooth DFT implementation.
  • Collaborate with implementation engineers and ASIC vendors in implementing DFT features for Automotive grade silicon.
  • Collaborate with designers to run Synthesis on modules and sub-systems, and identify and fix timing and implementation issues.
  • Work closely with 3rd party IP vendors on proper DFT implementation for the IPs
  • Be a clear communicator with a proven ability to work across functions inside the company, and with partners across the globe.

What you'll have:

  • Extensive experience in DFT techniques including JTAG, Scan, memory BIST, scan compression, ATPG vector generation, Boundary Scan, and DFT for mixed-signal and digital Ips.
  • Must have worked with 3rd party mixed-signal IP vendors in implementing DFT.
  • Experience with timing constraint generation for DFT modes.
  • Experience with LBIST – Initiation of test sequence on POST tests using IST controllers.
  • Experience with IEEE JTAG 1149.1/1149.6/1500/1687 and BSDL, ICL, PDL.
  • Experience with DFT verification and ATE test pattern generation.
  • Experience with silicon bring-up and debugging on ATE and in-system.
  • BSEE, MSEE, 10+ years experience, or Ph.D. with 2+ years of relevant experience in physical implementation of Digital ASICs.

Nice to haves:

  • Familiarity with developing automotive grade silicon with AEC-Q100 qualification and ISO 26262
