Device Analysis EngineerJob Description
ARM designs the technology that lies at the heart of advanced digital products, from wireless, networking and consumer entertainment solutions to imaging, automotive, security and storage devices.
ARM’s comprehensive processor product offering includes RISC CPUs, graphics processors (GPUs) and video processors (VPUs), enabling software, cell libraries, embedded memories, high-speed connectivity products, peripherals and development tools.
A world leader in processor design, ARM’s success is based on licensing agreements with many of the biggest names in consumer electronics and semiconductor manufacturing.
ARM system engineers need to constantly push the power, performance and area boundaries while generating designs that are robust, maintainable and deliverable to the high quality that our customers expect.
We are looking for experienced engineers to join the post-silicon device benchmarking team in ARM that is responsible for CPU and System level performance/power analysis on commercial devices, test chips, and development boards.
The successful candidate will collaborate with both product management and engineering teams to identify and benchmark key ARM based mobile and enterprise platforms using industry standard benchmarks and use cases.
The performance/power analysis from this benchmarking activity will provide the bedrock for roadmap decisions, outbound marketing messaging, and validating pre-silicon performance/power projections.
Good university degree, ideally in electronic engineering or computer science, although other science graduates would be considered if they have relevant experience.
