Subject: Hardware Verification from Formal Specifications (S.F. area)

Rambus is looking for a hardware verification tool developer to work on
automated functional test generation from formal specifications. The
applicant should have a PhD or equivalent experience in CS, EE, or Math.

Related experience includes the following disciplines:
functional and/or timing simulation;
formal verification;
tool development for logic verification;
logic design;
compiler writing;
constraint-solving systems.

Rambus has developed an automated verification system that generates
vector-based tests from a high level specification of circuit functionality.
We intend to extend the tool's capabilities in several potential directions:
automatic test coverage analysis; generation of test "vectors" for a symbolic
simulator (e.g., COSMOS); automatic generation of simulation models from
high-level specifications. You must be capable of contributing to this

Other aspects of the position may involve creation of simulation models,
communicating with individuals and groups, defining objectives, planning,
writing scripts for tool coordination, debugging logic designs.

All work is oriented for practicality. The tools are put to immediate use
for ongoing projects. The tasks associated with this position will have a
large dynamic range -- you will also be in the trenches, using the tools to
generate test suites and guarantee the designs.

Rambus is a small ( < 100 person) company specializing in the design of high
bandwidth memory technology. Rambus DRAMs are beginning to reach the market
in products such as SGI's Indigo Impact workstations, Creative Labs'
"Graphics Blaster MA302," and the Nintendo64 game machine.
