SoC Design & Integration Lead

Mountain View, CA
About us:
Aeva’s mission is to bring the next wave of perception to a broad range of applications from automated driving to industrial robotics, consumer electronics, consumer health, security, and beyond. Aeva is transforming autonomy with its groundbreaking sensing and perception technology that integrates all key LiDAR components onto a silicon photonics chip in a compact module. Aeva 4D LiDAR sensors uniquely detect instant velocity in addition to 3D position, allowing autonomous devices like vehicles and robots to make more intelligent and safe decisions. 

Role Summary:
As a key player in the Design team, you will lead the development of the SoC CPU complex component (CPU, NOC, memory, and peripherals) for Aeva’s 4-D Lidar processing chip. You will be responsible for the implementation of the SOC including all aspects of 3rd Party IP integration.

What you'll do:

  • Lead and drive development and integration of the sub-components of the SOC CPU complex.  
  • Work with third-party IP providers including ARM. 
  • Design and implement Aeva-specific sub-components.
  • Implement additional SOC functionality including functional safety and robustness functions. 
  • Work in a dynamic and fast-paced startup environment and work closely with a team of passionate engineers to define the processes, methodology, and tools to verify complex SoCs.
  • Work with Architects, design engineers and verification engineers, and System software teams to define architecture, and system-level verification plans to ensure that the SOC meets the functional, performance, and power targets. 
  • Work with the different stakeholders and functional leads to ensure high-quality SoC delivery on time.

What you'll have:

  • 10+ years of experience in the design, verification, and validation of advanced ARM-based SOCs
  • Deep understanding of ARM-based SOC design. Ability to achieve high performance and low power targets.
  • Experience writing assembly and C/C++ diagnostic firmware for embedded ARM processors and debugging in a simulation environment.
  • Working experience and knowledge in AMBA protocols, CoreSight Debugger, LPDDR, Ethernet, MIPI, and high-speed serdes.
  • Solid programming skills in SystemVerilog, UVM, C/C++, assembly, Perl/Python.
  • Proficient in debugging complex SOC or CPU core designs
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to collaborate deeply with cross-functional leads and management teams
  • Ability to deliver results in a very fast-moving environment
  • Desire to learn & implement groundbreaking new processes and methodology for continuous improvement 

Nice to haves:

  • Experience in pre-silicon validation on emulation platforms such as Cadence Palladium, Mentor Veloce, Synopsys Zebu 
  • Post-silicon bring-up and validation planning and execution
  • Diagnostics Firmware development and validation 

What's in it for you:

  • Be part of a fast-paced and dynamic team
  • Very competitive compensation and meaningful stock grants
  • Exceptional benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, and more
  • Unlimited PTO: We care about results, not punching time cards
