IBM seeks a Formal Verification Engineer to check the hardware design of its processors.
The intern will be part of both local and global verification teams. The position requires maintaining close communication with other team members and collaborating across logic-design teams, other verification teams, and tool development teams. The position involves verification of IBM’s systems, including POWER and System Z microprocessors.
The Engineer’s tasks will include:
-Defining a test plan
-Identifying and isolating design parts that are adequate for this technology
-Building a formal verification environment and properties needed to verify a design
-Developing innovative solutions and methodologies to solve general problems
– Technical capabilities, understanding of complex technical challenges
-Good written and oral communication skills
-Independent, self-directed, and highly motivated
-Critical and rigorous thinker
-Knowledge of computer microarchitectures, mathematical logic and formal languages, hardware description and verification languages and/or EDA tools and methodologies.
-Scripting language, such as Perl
-Acquaintance with hardware verification: formal, simulation, emulation, or acceleration.
-Acquaintance with logic design
Formal verification is one of the most challenging aspects of functional verification. Formal verification engineers guarantee the correctness of a design, making sure it meets the most strict quality requirements. In recent decades this has become a mainstream technology in industrial hardware verification. IBM has extensively deployed this technology across its verification and design teams. Today formal verification is a core verification technology that significantly improves the productivity of IBM’s hardware development teams. Formal verification application in IBM ranges from deep-dive verification of the most critical pieces of a design, to complex verification tasks that cover functional units as a whole.
IBM has operated in Israel since 1949 and was one of the first multinational corporations to establish offices in the country. Since that time, IBM has offered Israeli companies of all sizes from a variety of industries a wide range of business and technological solutions focusing on generating higher value for our clients and driving innovation.
