Senior Functional Safety Engineer 

Valley or Austin #6112

EDA-Careers represents some of the finest private and public companies in the EDA/SEMI sector, helping them find the finest full-time qualified candidates, to contribute to their growth and success.


This Senior Functional Safety Engineer will be contributing to the backbone of some of the world’s most popular SoCs working on the development and compilation of required ISO26262 work products. With emphasis on functional safety HW Requirements and Safety Analysis (FMEA, FMEDA, DFA), you will support the design team in the definition of appropriate safety mechanisms at architecture and microarchitecture levels to comply with the Technical Safety Requirements. You will also support fault injection simulations and activities providing Functional Safety Verification Plans.


Key Responsibilities:

  • Be the lead IP team’s Functional Safety Engineer for all safety-related semiconductor design IP products.

  • Define or contribute to HW Functional Safety Requirements and Technical Safety

  • Work with architects, designers and design verification leaders to define and implement functional safety requirements in the design.

  • Traceability using Jama Software, Atlassian Jira and structured documents (like Adobe Structured FrameMaker).

  • Creation of Safety Analyses including FMEA, FMEDA and DFA, including preparing related safety reports.

  • Support the IP team in selecting appropriated HW safety mechanisms for architecture and microarchitecture to comply with the HW Safety Requirements.

  • Compilation of the IP Safety Case and Safety Manual.

  • Change Management, Document Management and Configuration Management plan.

  • Lead the revision of the Safety Plan, Technical Safety Concept, and SEooC Assumptions.


Experience Requirements / Qualifications:

  • Strong digital design and architecture skills and process-oriented attitude to support their IP functional safety products development.

  • More than 5 years’ experience or equivalent in SoC and system architecture, design, verification/validation. Solid micro-architectures understanding.

  • More than 3 years’ experience in Functional Safety applications (semiconductor).

  • Deep knowledge of Functional Safety standards ISO 26262.

  • Basic understanding of ARM architecture and AMBA Protocols such as APB, AXI, ACE, CHI.

  • Working experience with industry-standard EDA tools (logic synthesis and coverage driven simulation).

  • Direct experience with fault injection tools will be considered a plus.
