Staff Verification Engineer,  CPU Modelling
5h ago


Arm architects the pervasive intelligence that is transforming our daily experience. Arm-based chips and device architectures orchestrate the performance of the technology that makes modern life possible.

Arm designs the technology which is at the heart of advanced digital products, from wireless, networking and consumer entertainment solutions to imaging, automotive, security and storage devices.

Arm improves people’s lives by enabling the intelligence in affordable, easy-to-use electronic products that transform the way we live and work.

We work in partnership with a global network of leading technology companies which are using our smart low-power technology.

Together we are shaping the future of a better world.

Today, We are well recognized as the market leader in the CPU and System IP industry and this has been achieved by consistently delivering reliable and high-quality IP products.

The cost of design and manufacturing and that warrants right first time approach for all IP and System products by our partners.

Time-to-market is critical for our partners to deal with fierce competition in the marketplace, being first would enable them to get premium value from the end products.

In this context, Design Verification of CPU IPs is a big challenge requiring an engineering skillset that is both broad and deep.
