Job Description

Want to use your C++ skills creatively in an exciting, dynamic company?

The CPU team at Arm is looking for highly skilled and motivated engineers to join us modelling Arm’s next generation architectures. We build C++ software models of leading edge Arm technologies that will power future systems in markets such as machine learning, automotive, high performance computing, mobile and the Internet of Things (IoT).

As one of the first consumers of new architectures, you will influence the success of an industry and develop tools that are vital to the successful development of Arm CPUs.

JOB PURPOSE

As part of the Functional Simulation team, you will collaborate with CPU designers to understand implementation specific behaviour of the IP being developed so that it could be incorporated into the functional models. Also, you will interact with verification engineers that will integrate the model on their workflow and use it to guarantee that CPUs functionality is aligned with the architecture specification.

Simulation speed is of paramount importance for the timely delivery of new CPUs to market. For this reason, you will be building and improving highly efficient scalable C++ models able to simulate very large number of instructions in limited amount of time.

This model accurately reflects CPU functional behaviour and will allow our partners to develop software such as drivers, firmware, OS and applications prior to silicon availability so their products become available to market earlier.

KEY OBJECTIVES OF THIS ROLE INCLUDE:

- To develop, test, and maintain high speed software models for Arm’s new generation CPUs and system level IP.

- Technically support other specialists and users of your models

- Be responsible for producing and executing model development plans for your area of responsibility, in conjunction with project management and engineering peers

- Build Virtual Platforms that can be used for CPU verification

- Collaborate with other engineering, architecture and research groups to advance the Arm-based ecosystem

- Contribute to the continuous improvement of Arm modelling methodologies

- Enable partners to progress on their software stack prior silicon availability

Arm® technology is at the heart of a computing and connectivity revolution that is transforming the way people live and businesses operate. From the unmissable to the invisible; our advanced, energy-efficient processor designs are enabling the intelligence in 86 billion silicon chips and securely powering products from the sensor to the smartphone to the supercomputer. With more than 1,000 technology partners including the world’s most famous business and consumer brands, we are driving Arm innovation into all areas compute is happening inside the chip, the network and the cloud.
