Summary/Objective

Uhnder has developed the world’s first automotive digital Radar-on-Chip (RoC).  Sensors based on Uhnder’s Digital Coded Modulation (DCM) technology achieve new and unprecedented levels of performance for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving solutions.  Founded in 2015, Uhnder’s main engineering operations center is in Austin, Texas, with design facilities in India and China.  

 

Uhnder’s approach and technology is transforming the automotive industry by changing the way radars work with significant improvements in performance and the additional benefits of smaller size and lower power and cost. 

As an AMS  Verification Engineer, you will verify the design and implementation of the complex Analog/RF subsystems. In this position, you will be a member of the AMS verification team responsible for all aspects of the verification of the functionality of these complex designs spanning : Circuit uArchitecture, Functionality across multiple frequency ranges, power modes and power management, etc.

Essential Functions

  • Creation and execution of verification plans from internal specifications, external IP, and in coordination with architects and designers for Analog/RF functions
  • Creation of higher-level models compatible with a range of simulation solutions
  • Creation and deployment of automated flows for block and chip level verification and coverage analysis
  • Develop Verilog, System Verilog, and UVM test environments, including analog component models and external components/models
  • Develop and monitor budgets for power consumption and the strategies for configuring and monitoring functional power modes.
  • Work with Analog and Digital team members to debug failures, manage bug tracking, and achieve the high code, functional and system level coverage needed for automotive products 
  • Hold detailed verification reviews and set standards for coding quality 
  • Test planning development and regression setup using either Python/Perl/Tcl scripts
  • Planning, execution, and debug of simulation regression suites for functional, DFT verification and power analysis 
  • Plan, develop, and deploy FPGA-compatible modeling strategies for the Analog/RF modules.
  • Work closely on pre-tape-out verification using simulation and emulation platforms, as well as silicon bring-up, debug, and optimization
