Job Description

You will be a valued member of the pre-silicon emulation / post-silicon validation team focused on bringing leading edge Mixed Signal Audio chips to market. Our high performance chips enable an incredible audio experience with highly integrated, platform level functionality while delivering lowest power consumption and highest efficiency.


  • You will develop and execute tests on the lab bench per the validation plan during pre-silicon and post-silicon phases of the product to ensure functionality and performance as per the datasheet
  • Developing automated test framework and regression test suites to optimize validation efficiency
  • You will be part of a team that designs mixed signal (measurement specific audio, power, ADC/DAC and digital circuits) board schematics and bring-up the platforms
  • Collaborate closely with IC Design engineers, Systems engineers and Application engineers to understand requirements and use cases
  • Debugging analog/digital silicon issues, board issues and Validation software/hardware tools issues
  • Work with a validation team to implement standard methodologies and continuous improvements to Cirrus Logic validation methodologies
  • Analyze test results and identify failures/defects using business analytics tools such as Spotfire
  • Develop and work with supporting HW (FPGA, DSP, ARM, 8051, JTAG, debuggers) and SW (Scripting, Schematic capture, C, firmware) collaterals

Required Skills and Qualifications
