Ampere is designing the future of hyperscale cloud and edge computing with the world’s first cloud native processor. Built for the cloud with a modern 64-bit Arm server-based architecture, Ampere gives customers the freedom to accelerate the delivery of all cloud computing applications. With industry-leading cloud performance, power efficiency and scalability, Ampere processors are tailored for the continued growth of cloud and edge computing.
Like the scientist behind its name, Ampere employees are innovators. We understand the needs of cloud computing and different software requirements. We are inventing what comes next and looking at everything from the structure of memory and how efficient the system is, to considerations on speed, cost of electricity and ability to cool. Power, size, weight and cost are driving the technology requirements and the innovation to come.
Our world class team of engineers, with depth and expertise in the cloud and semiconductor industries, is not only focused on the development of new semiconductor designs but also building out the first software ecosystem for Arm®-based server processors. Through the Ampere approach to the cloud and edge, we give our customers the freedom to challenge the status quo and accelerate next-generation data centers for the most memory-intensive applications. Given the challenge we have outlined, we are building a culture of entrepreneurs that ensure customers come first, proactively approaching industry challenges in the areas of security, power and performance, delivering results that matter most.
This is a New College Graduate role. You will get to work on the verification of a server-class microprocessor-based CPU/core design and be involved with all aspects of pre-silicon verification at unit and system level to ensure functional correctness and performance of microprocessors. You'll also have the opportunity to get experience in post-silicon debug and validation.
Create test plans for unit-level and chip-level verification
Implement test benches and verification environment
Generate tests, debug failures, evaluate coverage of design
Debug post-silicon system level failures
0+ years of work experience (beyond internships)
Previous internship in IP design or verification efforts - preferred
Solid understanding of high performance microprocessor architecture concepts
Academic experience with industry standard HDL languages (Verilog, System Verilog, VHDL) and simulation tools
Programming experience in C, C++ and scripting experience in Perl, Python or Unix Shell
Academic experience in x86 or ARM assembly language
BS or MS graduate in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering
