DFT Engineer
Ref No.: 17-25800
Location: San Diego, California
The Digital ASIC Design Team is currently seeking candidates for a senior position responsible for the implementation of advanced DFT/DFD(design for test/design for debug) techniques for low power, high performance and highly integrated SoCs including CODEC and high-speed PHY & SerDes systems. The successful candidate will help in the deployment of DFT methodologies that reduce test cost, increase production quality and enhance yield learning.
